Think you know your best friends? Well, if your best friend is named Will Traveler, you probably don't. In this hot new series (which airs both the pilot and the second episode tonight on ABC at 9 pm/ET), two college pals find out that their friend may have framed them for a terrorist act. Matthew Bomer, a one-time buzzed-about candidate to play Superman in last year's "Superman Returns," stars as Jay, who is on the run from the law. managed to catch up with him to find out about his current gig and his "Tru Calling "past. Does the enforcement date of a late-season entry concern you at all?
Bomer: You know, I think it's a really smart move by ABC. I think it would have been easy to get lost in the shuffle if it had come out in the beginning of the season, so I actually think it's a good thing. Plus, the casting is pretty damn good, right?
Bomer: ["Laughs"] I learned a lot from watching my fellow cast members, for sure. How many episodes do you guys have in the can?
Bomer: Eight. And you're all done with it for the time being?
Bomer: That's the first season. [Another] strength of the show is that it's a serialized show that really answers all the questions it raises. So by the end of the first season, you know the answer to every question raised in the pilot. And further questions are raised for the second season. At the same time, missing an episode doesn't [prevent] you from enjoying the next week — you can enjoy it on an individual basis as well as the whole mythology. Do you wish that the premise allowed you more scenes with Steven Culp?
Bomer: Yeah, I didn't get to work with Steven enough this season. I know that would change in the future, but he's fantastic. I love Steven. He's a great guy, too. Viola [Davis], Anthony Ruivivar and Bill [Mayo]… whenever I can get a chance to work with them or be on set when they're shooting, I just take notes.
