In “Papi Chulo”—written and directed by John Butler—openly gay actor Matt Bomer plays Sean, a TV weatherman who has an onscreen breakdown. His sensitive but ratings-obsessed boss Ash, played by Wendi McLendon-Covey, gives him a leave of absence. Unfortunately, the recently single Sean doesn’t know what to do with the time and repeatedly calls his ex Carlos to get his voicemail.

Sean soon notices his home needs repairs, leading him to hire migrant worker Ernesto, played by Alejandro Patiño. Lacking companionship, Sean loses sight of boundaries and socializes with Ernesto in spite of the language barrier and the fact that he is a straight, married man.

“Love, Simon,” which opened in theaters March 16, is a teen dramedy about a high school kid named Simon coming to terms with being gay after starting an email conversation with another closeted gay teen from his school. The film is based on the novel “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli. It is also the first major studio release of a film that focuses on a teen gay romance, which is why celebrities across the country have been buying out screenings of the film and giving away tickets to anyone, particularly young LGBTQers, who want to see it.

Local celeb Sacha Kljestan, a midfielder for the Orlando City Soccer Club, and his wife bought out a screening at the Regal Winter Park Village for March 29 and packed the theater with kids from the Zebra Coalition. “The movie spreads the message of tolerance, acceptance and equality.

NEW YORK (AP) – When he landed the lead in Amazon Prime’s “The Last Tycoon,” Matt Bomer had never read the timeless F. Scott Fitzgerald novella on which the series is based. But by chance, he had just finished another celebrated novel set in 1930s Hollywood, Nathanael West’s “The Day of the Locust.”

“I was contemplating the themes both books deal with: How do you maintain your artistry in such a commercial industry as the movies, and can you? And I was thinking about how much Hollywood has changed since that time period. And how little has really changed.”
