  • Another One X One auction-related comment from In Style:

    Though the cause couldn't be more serious—money raised on this evening helped to provide clean drinking water and food for destitute villages in Africa—Matt made a hilarious emcee for the live auction, and his hosting style worked. The more the crowd laughed, the more they bid. Granted, it helped that Matt promised the winning bidder that "Brad Pitt will make love to you!" in addition to a trip down the red carpet at the Ocean's Thirteen première and a ton of electronic goodies from Hewlett-Packard...

    And Matt kept the crowd in stitches all night long. The highlight? "I’ve had some wine, so I’m going to do my best Matthew McConaughey impression," he said, then debuted a dead-on Texas drawl!

  • Confirmation that Bourne Ultimatum will be partially filmed at Pinewood Studios outside London is here.

    At present "The Bourne Ultimatum" -- the next instalment in the action series starring U.S. actor Matt Damon as Jason Bourne -- is being shot there.

  • Update: Matt's Wikipedia entry has a new update today that he will provide a voice-over in the Ed, Edd, n Eddy movie. There is a planned movie of the animated series, but does anyone have any idea if this is correct, or know more about the show?

  • Update: A website for Running the Sahara is already operational, and includes information on the Africa H20 project.

    Filming in London

    That is good news for us Londoners - that the next Bourne will be filmed in part at Pinewood. Hopefully there will be some London location stuff too. I think London is a very photogenic city on film - though am biased of course - some excellent buildings for Bourne to hang off! Good to have Matt around here for a while! Jan

    Lucky me! Elstree where Pinewood Studios is located is only about 10 miles from where I live, and I have friends who live in Borehamwood which is nearby. Really looking forward to the Bourne Ultimatum though I am disappointed Marie won't be returning. I really loved the relationship that developed between her and Jason.

    I may have missed it but when was the premiere for Feast by the way? MP

    The premiere of Feast was Tuesday night in Las Vegas at The Palms (reported on this site a few days ago).

    does anyone know....

    I missed a few days on my reading, was there ever a reliable confirmation about Matt playing Capitan Kirk?

    Re: does anyone know....

    No - he hadn't been approached about the film as of a few weeks ago (confirmed by his publicist to the Wall Street Journal). All rumors.

    Feast premiere, about time that happened. The photos looks cool of them both. Matt cute!
    Can not wait for the Bourne Ultimatium, glad some of its in London thats cool! Thats true aswell, good buildings to hang off.. and i live about 3hrs away from London, but i still find it very good to have him over here for a while.
    From the 'One X One auction-related comment' thats good, by the sounds of it i think he made an excellent host i'm pleased!
    Thanks for the updates - your great!

    Feast

    Although I can't stomach gore flicks and don't plan on watching "Feast", does anybody know what kind of reviews or comments it received? What was the buzz after the premiere?

    Re: Feast

    The reviews have actually been pretty good for what the movie is - a B grade horror movie that knows it is a B grade horror movie. It toured some festivals (maybe last year?) and even scored an audience favourite award (or came runner up) at one of them. So generally, the reviews were favourable. The movie appears to have no support from the releasing company, however, and its released has been delayed numerous times before this very short cinema release in the next few weeks (for a day or so). It will then be available almost immediately on DVD.

    Sample review from today:

    That style of shirt must really be Matt's favorite. He looks good in it though:) Nice to see that big smile again, too.

    love the pics! thanks again. and great news about filming in london!

    random question, when matt and ben won their oscar, had matt dated minnie or was that after?
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: September 14th, 2006 09:14 am (UTC) (Link)
    Minnie and Matt dated following the filming of GWH (or maybe even during it), and they broke up some weeks before the Oscars. Here's my summary on Wikipedia:

    Contrary to a popular and wide-spread belief, Damon did not break up with former girlfriend Minnie Driver on the Oprah Winfrey show in early 1998. They had broken up agreeably a number of weeks before the show, but Driver claimed that she was unaware until she saw the show and then sought sympathy from the press as a "wronged woman." Damon did not publicly deny this until years later. Driver and her sister later admitted that the rumor was false, and that the break-up had occurred weeks before the show.

    Matt's 1X1

    You'll be happy to note, Felicity, if you haven't found out already, that Access Hollywood yesterday (9/12) ran a little piece on the 1X1 event. They mentioned that Matt was the host and interviewed him. They asked him how he managed to get Brad Pitt to attend, and he replied, "I've got some revealing photos..." which cracked everyone up. It was good to see the clip.

    Rock on, Felicity. We`all appreciate you.

    aww how cute, i always love seeing them together. they look like they are having a great time.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: September 13th, 2006 10:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
    I'm experiencing some major Batt overload here...and I love it! Look at those pics, they look so happy and relaxed with one another. I've seen a lot of pictures of them both throughout the years, and I have never seen either of them look at others the way the look at each other. They also look espcecially hot in these pictures. I like it when the boys dress more casual than formal.

    BTW Felicity, I want to let you know again that I appreciate the effort you put into this site, and I hope you never give it up. Keep strong, hon! :)

    Absolutely agree that they look at each other in photos in a way quite unlike any other photos with co-stars, partners etc. Must be an ease/comfort in each other's presence, and the shared history - plus they really seem to amuse each other.

    I know it's a third rate Cartoon Network series and I have a very hard time believing Matt would lend his voice to it. If Matt were to lend his voice to a cartoon, I would figure he'd pick one for Nickelodeon (Spongebob, Jimmy Neutron, Fairly Odd Parents) or Fox (Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad), which many of his contemporaries have voiced on. I gotta say I'll be very surprised if this Wikipedia entry is correct.

    The entry's already gone from Wikipedia, so it was probably a prank. But thanks for the info Stephanie.

    I'd be so happy if it was Spongebob...

    Matt on Jimmy Kimmel

    Matt was just on the Jimmy Kimmel Live special. Hilarious cameo.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: September 14th, 2006 03:09 am (UTC) (Link)
    OMG Matt was finally on Jimmy Kimmel!!! i was just watching it and they had an hour special at 10 o'clock, and u know how jimmy always says, my apologies to matt damon, well he said we have a special guest tonight..Matt Damon and he purposely took a long time introducing him and then matt came out for like 1 minute and then jimmy said, sorry we are out of time. and then matt started going on a swearing rant and said telling him to go F himself. it was sooo funny and matt did a great job acting like he was furious. and then he stormed out. lol! i hope some of you got to see it and i hope they will show the episode again..

    Does anyone know which period Matt is going to be in London, and where?

    Thanks,

    Pauline.

    We should know more Bourne Ultimatum details after the Departed press junket later this week.

    I'll guess they're filming in the London area from October to December, but during this time there could also be filming in unknown European locations. They're definitely filming in NY during January.

    Best chance to see Matt (if he attends) will be the London premiere of The Departed - expected to be on 20 September.
