    Photo

    I know there's a photo of Matt on holiday with family, but I'm deleting the link as it is private (though in a public space).

    Ben's Guardian article

    Several mentions of Matt in Ben's article at the Guardian. Ben's Batman costume and Matt's costume from The Martian are in the lobby of their offices. Ha.

    Re: Ben's Guardian article

    Hey that's pretty darn cool!!! I thought Ben said he had to ask Warner Bros to borrow one of the Batman costumes just to wear it at his son's birthday party. Maybe they gave in and let him keep it. Cool that they are defined by those two roles. Don't forget, the movie poster for Promised Land hangs in Matt's office that I gave :)

    Manchester By The Sea

    I might be late to the party on this one.. But I saw Manchester By the Sea twice before the holidays. I have to admit I got such a kick out of seeing Jackson Damon (playing Otto). It amazed me how much he looked like Matt, as if he'd had a son. A lot of boys have been cast as young Matt over the years, but when you see a real Damon there's no denying the bloodline. Although his role was small, hope to see him in more stuff in the future :)

    PS watching the Jason Bourne DVD Bonus features tonight. I got the Target version which came with an additional bonus disc!

    Re: Manchester By The Sea

    I bought JB Blu-Ray and watched it twice in a row; I got a better opinion than when I saw it in theater maybe because when we have to read subtitles we miss a few things - I keep my idea about shaky cam and lack of light, but I like it more and find it a better movie than I thought. That made me joyful !
    What is that stuff with Promised Land 's poster? I don't remember exactly. [I don't remember everything... :) ]
    Happy New Year!

    RE: Re: Manchester By The Sea

    Manchester by the sea is definitely a movie that I want to check out!
    I'm just so glad to see Casey in something good finally! Casey is a very talented actor.
    And I thought that was Jackson when i saw the trailer! 🙌🏼 I think Jackson is a spitting image of his father Kyle, and yeah he definitely is a Damon boy! I think he is interested in the process of film, and acting.. wasn't he also on the set of downsizing?
    Pretty cool! Maybe he is in his uncles footsteps ❤️

    Re: Manchester By The Sea

    Hey B.
    A few years ago when Matt's and Ben's production office was on the Warner Bros studio lot I dropped by with a gift. I'd been working on the lot myself and passed by and noticed their walls were empty. Promised Land was coming out soon. I was able to obtain the movie poster for the movie and dropped it off, and introduced myself. I found out months later it had been framed and now hangs in Matt's office :)

    Re: Manchester By The Sea

    It's great, Greg! It was a nice idea, and apparently Matt seemed appreciate the gift! This film is a lot for him. (I like this movie)
    Thank you for the remembering.

    Kenneth Lonergan talks about Matt and what the movie would have been like with different casting:

    Globes

    Matt will be presenting to the winner of the best actress comedy/musical. Probably Emma Stone.

    RE: Re: GG Red carpet

    Matt and Lucy both in Versace. Hate the scruff. Hope it is just a holiday thing. Can't post links as this site is blocked from work.

    Losing screenplay to La La Land is a joke. That movie seemed to have no screenplatY or plot. Hopefully more serious award shows will recognise MBTS.
