Guiding Light alum Matt Bomer is gearing up to star in yet another television project. Fresh off  a turn in FX's American Horror Story: Hotel, Bomer will headline Amazon's The Last Tycoon, according to Deadline.

The pilot is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's last and unfinished novel. Loosely based on the life of film producer Irving Thalberg, the book centers on Monroe Stahr (Bomer) a tinsletown studio exec in the 1930's whose star rises. As Stahr climbs to the top, it pits him against the current head of the studio and his mentor, Pat Brady.
