Matt Bomer, John Carroll Lynch to Star in Transgender Drama ‘Anything’

Matt Bomer and John Carroll Lynch are starring in the transgender drama “Anything,” with Timothy McNeil making his feature directorial debut.

The movie also stars Maura Tierney, Micah Hauptman, Margot Bingham, and Melora Hardin. Mark Ruffalo and Great Point Media’s Robert Halmi and Jim Reeve are executive producing.

“Anything” is based on McNeil’s play of the same name. Lynch plays a man who is suicidal over the death of his wife and moves from Mississippi to Los Angeles, where he can be under the watchful eye of his protective sister, played by Tierney. He then begins an intense friendship with Bomer’s character, a transgendered sex worker. The unlikely new couple must reconcile their vastly different backgrounds as they fill the void in each other’s lives.

“Anything” is being produced by Hauptman, Louise Runge, and Ofrit Peres. Bomer, Tony Lipp, and Scott Wexler also executive produce.

Great Point Media is the distributor. UTA Independent Film Group helped put the film together and is the U.S. sales agent.

“I’m very happy to be part of this daring project,” Ruffalo said. “Love is at the essence of great storytelling and transcends all discrimination and politicization.”

Ruffalo and McNeil have known each other since their studies with Stella Adler. Production on “Anything” recently wrapped in Los Angeles.

Bomer’s credits include “The Normal Heart” and “The Last Tycoon.” Lynch will be seen in “The Founder” and portrayed serial killer John Wayne Gacy in “American Horror Story.”
