Don't worry about Matt Bomer and that 'Fifty Shades' role

Yes, a petition is being circulated to recast Matt Bomer as Christian Grey in "Fifty Shades of Grey" instead of Charlie Hunnam, but Bomer doesn't appear to be sweating it.

"I'm so grateful for the fans and touched," Bomer told "Entertainment Tonight." "I'm looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota [Johnson, who has been cast opposite Hunnam]."

Fans continue to be pretty unhappy about the planned film adaptation of the erotic novel, and thousands of signatures have been collected on the petition.

But it appears Bomer would rather focus on his current project, the hit USA Network series "White Collar."

"We're definitely embracing more of a bad boy version of Neal this year," Bomer said. "Neal's starting to realize that he doesn't have to be a good boy all the time and that maybe not doing the right thing is what he's best at."
