Matt Bomer's fans have faith in the actor's capability to step out and shine on his own. "I love Matt and am so tired of seeing him in these tiny movie roles. I'd like to see him in one where he has some decent amount of screen time. It's clear from his online buzz that there are many, many fans who feel the same," a Matt Bomer fan stated on the website Deadline.com.
The social media buzz continues for the Matt Bomer fans who want to see the actor as Christian Grey. They have devoted most of their time voting on "Twitter" and "Facebook" to ensure that Matt Bomer is considered to portray the 27-year old dark and disturbed billionaire.
