Behind the Candelabra still
  • The first footage from Behind the Candelabra was released in a HBO preview available here.



  • A recent article at the New York Daily News:

    When Matt Damon was told Robert De Niro cited him as an inspiration at the Independent Film Project's 22nd annual Gotham Film Awards, he stammered, "I ... don't know how that makes me feel ... I'm ... uh, well ... I can't put my feelings for him into a sound bite." Paying it forward, Damon (above) expressed admiration for Pittsburgh, where he recently shot "Promised Land." Says Damon, "It's a lot like Boston in the sense that the people are just very real and it's an easy place to kind of disappear."

  • One of Robert De Niro's recent quotes about Matt was in The Guardian:

    And what about now? Which actors from younger generations inspire you?
    The actors I respect are Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio… Daniel Day-Lewis is a wonderful actor. Jennifer Lawrence [De Niro's co-star in Silver Linings Playbook] is wonderful. She's got a great energy.

  • Another report from the Gotham Awards via the Examiner:

    As always, he thanked his stunning wife, Luciana Barroso, along with his children. During the award ceremony, Luciana was busy "playing Mom for the table" as described by onlookers. "She was busy pouring champagne for everyone, making sure everyone had what they needed". Guess Matt is a lucky man? Matt's moving speech concluded by saying "I have never taken this industry for granted and I never will... I'm truly blessed."

    Another person John seemed to adore was Matt Damon, as he presented him with the male "Tribute" award. Praising Matt as one of his most beloved icons, the funny-man actor went on to say that "he is so infatuated with him, his children would be frightened if they knew how much." Emily scored an IFP Gotham Independent Film Award before the glowing duo headed out to celebrate.

  • A recent interview with John Krasinski is at USA Today:

    "One of the best parts of the movie is that Matt had never been able to play this kind of part," Krasinski said, speaking at a Details magazine party honoring Hollywood mavericks Thursday. "He's a a self-loathing, broken and problematic character. We haven't seen this."

    "I'm so excited for people to see Matt play this role, which has a lot of faults and a lot of problems," says Krasinski. "His character is trying to figure out his place in life. (Damon) has always wanted to play those parts."

  • Photographer Greg Williams talks about his favorite photos of Matt on his blog.

    There is a very nice article about Matt Damon by Mike LaSalle in the SanFrancisco Chronicle. I believe it was called Matt Damon, A Thought. It describes the way he has an almost innate, unassuming way of placing himself into his roles.

    I don't know how to do a link to the article, otherwise I would do so.

    Re: Behind the Candelabra

    I know OMG I wish that I would have seen him on the Today Show but no TV right now so I search for him online a lot. He's so hot.

    Candelabra, Today Show

    Wow, that's a great shot of Matt. I'm always amazed how he can disappear in plain sight. You have to look twice to even tell it's him.

    It makes me crazy when some people claim Matt doesn't have range. I think what they really mean is, they haven't seen much of his work! Talented Mr Ripley + Bourne + The Informant + Ocean's 13 = HUGE crazytime range.

    John Krasinski was on the Today Show today and in his intro segment at the top of the hour Matt Lauer mentioned he had seen Promised Land on DVD and called it "a great film". :)

    KRASINSKI & DAMON: BROS & PROSE
    Ben Affleck may want to start best friend hunting. Sources tell Confidenti@l that while Matt Damon was filming “Adjustment Bureau” with Emily Blunt, he and Blunt’s hubby, John Krasinski, “hit it off immediately” and bonded even tighter while co-writing “Promised Land.” Our insider says it helps that Blunt and Damon’s wife, Luciana Barroso, are also pals. Despite owning houses on the same block, our insider says, Damon and Affleck “have drifted apart and don’t see each as much.”

    Matt

    I read somewhere a description of Matt saying he was the typical Irish-Catholic boy from Boston. But I think he is not an Irish descendant nor Catholic. And although he was born in Boston I think he did not live long in that city. Am I wrong?



    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: December 4th, 2012 08:11 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Matt

    He was born in the Boston area and grew up in Cambridge, outside of Boston. His family is still there.

    He does have Finnish ancestry but I'm not sure about the Irish-Catholic background.

    Casting news!

    Matt will join the amazing cast of George Clooney's new movie set to start shooting in Europe on 1 March. No word yet on the size of his role (which may be quite small).

    http://www.deadline.com/hollywood/

    Matt Damon is negotiating to join The Monuments Men, the period drama that George Clooney will direct in January in Europe as a co-production between Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox. Damon joins what continues to be shaping up as an amazing cast. Besides Damon and Clooney, the film will star Skyfall‘s Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, The Artist’s Jean Dujardin, Argo‘s John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. Clooney and Damon did the Ocean’s Eleven movies together and Syriana.
