Where's Waldo?

And to further muddle up the question of "Where in the world is Matty D?" The Daily Mail claims he's in LA.

Martian

OMG, how great is this from an LA Times story on the impact of TIFF on the Oscar race!?

"We've seen a rough cut of Ridley Scott's sci-fi survival story, and it's pretty great. Look for comparisons to 2013 TIFF outer space sensation "Gravity" as well as raves for Matt Damon's lead turn as a stranded astronaut."

Aggghhh!! Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!

Exciting! And there's a cover story in Total Film with new photos online.

It took me a while to remember I'm currently in the UK and can pick up a copy (greetings from freezing cold Birmingham!)

The Onion

The Onion posted a hilarious spoof article today on Matt losing $500 on bad headshots! Including a "candid" photo of him possibly sitting in his kitchen. The photo looks to be taken mid-2014 since his hairstyle is pre-Project Greenlight Finalist red carpet event in November.

Re: The Onion

Gregory, I'm very sorry but do you still have "Come To Papa - Halloween 10/6/14" episode? I downloaded your "Come To Papa - Panic - 11/4/14" episode from soundcloud, but I could't access to halloween episode. I guess it's expired. Could you re-upload halloween episode on soundcloud?

Total Film

The Total Film mag was released today. It's a 10 page article with lots of photos, including one of a shirtless Matt fixing his wounds. It's mostly about Ridley's attention to detail, absence of green screen, detailed sets etc. Matt calls Ridley lovely, the space suits are horrible to work in, everyone wants to be true to the book. The author of the article made two set visits.

OT: Jeremy Renner/Bourne

I have an interest in back stage Hollywood maneuvering, so I found this article on Jeremy Renner interesting, especially so since Bourne filming is about to commence. It could easily be subtitled, "Why Jeremy Renner is Never Going to Be Tom Cruise or Matt Damon"
