  • An interview with Pedro Pascal about The Great Wall and his friendship with Matt is at So it goes, including:

    DAVID: So five months in China sounds almost as good as three months in Belfast. Not quite, but any adventures there you can tell us about?

    PEDRO: I travelled around like a tourist whenever I got the opportunity. We spent so much time shooting and I got to pal around with Matt Damon because as everyone knows, he’s a real jerk (laughs).

    DAVID: Yeah, famously terrible.

    PEDRO: A notorious bad guy in the industry. He and his wife adopted me into their family and took me through the experience and I had the time of my life. We were tourists together whenever we got the chance – we went to Hong Kong and I went to see some friends in Bangkok. I can’t tell you about that weekend.

  • New details about Suburbicon from the Hollywood Reporter:

    In a major coup for a young actor, Noah Jupe will co-star opposite Matt Damon and Julianne Moore in Suburbicon, the black comedy being directed by George Clooney.

    Also joining the cast is Glenn Fleshler, fresh off his appearance on HBO’s acclaimed The Night Of crime drama.

    Paramount is distributing the period project, which is being financed by Black Bear Pictures.

    Based on a script by Ethan and Joel Coen, Suburbicon tells of a father (Damon) who hatches a plan to kill his wife in order to be with the woman’s sister (Moore), with whom he’s having an affair. Unfortunately, his 8-year-old son catches on and turns the whole plan upside down.

    Jupe will play the son, who tries to tell others of his father’s deeds, while Fleshler will play a hitman.

    The project has already recruited Oscar Isaac as an insurance investigator, Woody Harrelson as the boy’s uncle and Josh Brolin as the boy’s Little League coach.

    An October start in Los Angeles is being eyed. Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures and Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures are producing.
