Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey are going to play lovers in a new Showtime series!! Via Variety: “Bridgerton” leading man Jonathan Bailey has signed on for a lead role in the Showtime limited series “Fellow Travelers,” Variety has learned. Bailey joins previously announced cast members Matt Bomer and Allison Williams in the show, which is based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Mallon. It was ordered to series at Showtime in April after Variety exclusively reported it was in the works in September 2021. In the show, the handsome and charismatic Hawkins Fuller (Bomer) avoids emotional entanglements – until he meets Tim Laughlin (Bailey), a young man brimming with idealism and religious faith. They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants,” initiating one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history. Over the course of four decades, Hawk and Tim cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves.
