Zoo preview screenings, SNL
  • There will be more advance screenings of We Bought A Zoo across the US on Saturday night (10 December). A still of Matt from the film is at IMDB.



  • The rest of Matt's interview with Parade is now online, including:

    Damon’s list of upcoming projects is as diverse as ever. He plans to play Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger in a film Affleck is slated to direct, and he’ll star opposite Michael Douglas, who’s cast as Liberace, in an HBO movie. Next year, Damon plans to direct a script he wrote with The Office’s John Krasinski. Did he feel like he was cheating on Affleck? “Well,” Damon says straight-faced, referencing Gone Baby Gone, which Affleck adapted with Aaron Stockard, “he cheated on me first.”

    As busy as he is, Damon understands how fickle Hollywood can be. He recalls a conversation with Clooney back in 2001 concerning an actor’s shelf life. “We started talking about people who were big stars 10 years earlier,” Damon says, “and there’s an incredible turnover.” When the pals saw each other recently, “I was like, ‘We did it,’” Damon says, breaking into a big smile. “‘We made it—10 years.’”

  • Matt filmed a skit in NY with Katy Perry, Andy Samberg and Val Kilmer on Friday for this week's SNL, to be hosted by Perry. Photos from Zimbio, Radar Online and Celebuzz.



  • A sighting of Matt and Lucy on Tuesday night is at the New York Post.

    Zoo previews

    There's nothing I'd like more than to be able to give an early report about We Bought a Zoo. But, unfortunately, like last time, my evening is already spoken for. Rats!

    Re: Zoo previews

    They announced it very late. Even a box-office report the day before said they may have screenings on the weekend.

    Re: SNL

    Funny how Matt was introduced in the song as "a good lookin' drug addict". He did still look good! Lol. It was a terrific show, the highlight being Alec Balwin's appearance as the pilot of the plane he was removed from, aplogizing to "national treasure" Alec Baldwin. He used a spot-on southern accent, too.

    He may be an a$$, but he's a hoot, and a fantastic actor.

    GQ cover

    Here's the somewhat strange (and definitely Photoshopped) GQ cover. Thoughts?

    Re: GQ cover

    Hate it, even his own mother would struggle to recognise him. Removed all the personality from his face and made him look 12 years old. Yuck. Marcia

    Re: GQ cover

    Why in the heck do they do that to handsome people??? It's as though the magazine editors think physical individuality - even when attractive - is evil.

    Re: GQ cover

    I completely agree with you guys,the cover is so freakish and weird. I am convinced that they took a picture from his Bourne Identity days and imposed it on or blended it with a more recent picture. I'm always embarrassed for natural celebs like Matt when their pictures are so distorted. Photoshop should be used to very subtly enhance features, not totally change them.... And he's only gotten better-looking with age! Too bizarre. :/

    Re: GQ cover

    If you compare side by side photos, they made Matt resemble Justin Bieber. I like Bieber, but that's just sad!

    Re: GQ cover

    Hard to know what they were trying to do. Still hoping that was a spoof and the real cover will surface soon.
