More fan support for Matt Bomer in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Bret Easton Ellis has created a lot of controversy with his ideas on who should play Christian Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.  He has spoken out against Matt Bomer, who is a fan favorite for the role, because he believes that gay actors cannot convincingly play straight actors, never mind that Bomer does a fanastic job of it every week on White Collar already.  Here are some of Easton Ellis's tweets:

“It's a very major disappointment to announce that I've somehow been taken off the list of possible screenwriters for Fifty Shades of Grey,” Ellis tweeted.

He then tweeted on Aug. 8, “Okay I'll say it. Matt Bomer isn't right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He's great for other roles but this is too big a game.”

He then tweeted later that day, “I am NOT discriminating Matt Bomer because of his sexuality. Fifty Shades of Grey demands an actor that is genuinely into women. Get it?!?” and followed with “I think Matt Bomer is incredibly handsome and a good actor but I think he comes off totally gay in White Collar. And that is why no to CG [Christian Grey]...”

Of course, people have not been taking these comments lightly and many fans have been fighting back with him on twitter.  It's great that the studio has realized that he may not be the right guy for them, and has taken his name off consideration for writing the screenplay. Also, through all this backlash against Easton Ellis' comments, it seems that the fan support for Matt Bomer has gotten even stronger, with new fan pages and tweets coming out every day.
