Mark Ruffalo Falls For Matt Bomer in "The Normal Heart"

http://www.gay.net/entertainment/2012/01/23/mark-ruffalo-falls-matt-bomer-normal-heart



Ovid, the Roman poet, had a saying: amor tussisque non celantur. Love and a cough are not concealed.

If true, let’s hope that the sound of love between Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are Alright) and Matt Bomer (White Collar) behaves audibly, even wildly, in the silver-screen adaptation of Larry Kramer’s Tony Award-winning play, "The Normal Heart," the latest feature-length from Hollywood’s most overworked gay, Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story, Eat Pray Love).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ruffalo will wander into the drama—an autobiographical take on the AIDS pandemic that swept across New York City in the 1980s—as Ned Weeks, the LGBT activist who falls invariably in love with closeted New York Times fashion writer Felix Turner, played by Bomer.

Prepare to fan yourselves furiously, for Julia Roberts has also signed onto the project in the role of Emma Brookner, the wheelchair-bound doctor who advocates an abstinence only approach to man-on-man sex (her response to “gay cancer”) while Alec Baldwin will play Ben Weeks, Ned’s homophobic brother.

Hollywood’s most overworked gay-friendly-heterosexual, Brad Pitt, will produce the film under the influence of his production company Plan B.

4. My goodness Matt Bomer looks like Ewan McGregor

Or like the love-child of Ewan McGregor and Paul Walker.

5. The play when it was new was an amazing thing

A fire alarm, a slap in the face. A great work of art.
