In 2001, Bomer graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University (School of Drama) in 2000, he moved to New York City, New York, and worked on stage until he was cast in a small role, as Ian Kipling, on All My Children, a daytime soap-opera serial on the ABC television network. Later in 2001, he was cast as Ben Reade on another daytime television soap opera, Guiding Light, on the CBS television network.
He starred as Luc, Tru`s (Eliza Dushku) ill-fated love interest, in Tru Calling (2003–04), a supernatural, science-fiction television series on the Fox television network.
Although Bomer was director Brett Ratner`s favorite choice to portray Superman/Clark Kent for the project that later became Superman Returns (2006), Ratner left the project in 2003 and was replaced by director Bryan Singer; Singer cast actor Brandon Routh in the role in October 2004. But Bomer had the chance to play both Clark Kent and Superman in a series of Japanese commercials and press ads for Toyota in 2009.
Bomer appeared on North Shore (2004–05), a prime-time television soap opera, as well as in Flightplan (2005), a thriller film with Jodie Foster.
In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006), Bomer portrayed Eric, a Vietnam-War veteran who is driving across Texas to re-enlist after his brother is drafted. The brothers run afoul of Sheriff Hoyt and are taken captive by the Hewitt family. Bomer costarred in Traveler (2007), a short-lived midseason replacement television series which premiered on ABC on May 30, 2007. He has had the recurring role of Bryce Larkin on action-comedy series Chuck (2007–09) on the NBC television network.
On October 23, 2009, Bomer began starring in White Collar, a police-procedural drama television series on the USA Network. The series chronicles the partnership between a con artist (Bomer) and a U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation agent (Tim DeKay). In April 2009, the USA Network made a series commitment, with the ninety-minute pilot episode to be followed by thirteen one-hour episodes.
Bomer enjoys participating in sports such as football, baseball and tennis, as well as playing the guitar. He is also good friends with Zachary Quinto, a fellow Carnegie Mellon alumnus, as well as high school classmates Lee Pace and Lynn Collins. In an interview published in the January 2010 issue of Details, when asked about media reports regarding his sexuality, Bomer stated, "I don`t care about that at all. I`m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life." He declined to elaborate further, stating, "I have a network and a show riding on my shoulders", in reference to his starring role on USA`s White Collar.
He`s dating publicist Simon Halls and they`re raising three kids together.
