  • Update: A premiere party report from Roger Friedman at Fox News:

    But there were plenty of A-listers who turned out for “The Departed” including stars Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon, and Leonardo DiCaprio. Alec Baldwin, who nearly steals the movie doing comedy shtick with Mark Wahlberg, came to the screening but skipped the festivities with a good excuse: an early call this morning. He left lovely girlfriend Nicole Seidel on her own, and she spent quality time with Matt Damon and his newish wife, Lucy.

    Meanwhile, all of the guests were knocked out by “The Departed,” which played very well to the Ziegfeld crowd. Matt Damon said, “The idea of doing a movie in Boston with an accent and Marty Scorsese, there’s nothing better.” The last Damon got a chance to trot out his homeboy patois was a decade ago in “Good Will Hunting.” A lot has changed since then—Damon is a movie star, he’s married, has an 8-year-old stepdaughter and a baby girl. He was a little unprepared for Nicholson’s on set shenanigans, but he rose to the occasion.

    "The Departed" has ‘hit’ written all over it. Damon and DiCaprio will be vying for Best Actor nods, while Nicholson (and perhaps Baldwin) will be getting supporting actor attention. Thelma Schoonmaker is a cinch for editing awards, and there will many more end of the year kudo’s for this raucous, stupendous film.

  • The video interview with Matt mentioned yesterday is now online at IESB.

  • On Monday Matt filmed additional scenes or re-shoots for The Good Shepherd in New York.

  • An article at In Touch mentions that Matt introduced Alexia to Dylan and Cole Sprouse on the set of their TV show in Los Angeles. Thanks to Sammie323's Effluvia.

    Directed by Matt Damon

    Well, I must say... it's good to see him finally talking about directing. He's just going to have to do it and quit methodically studying it (also) or putting it off! He just needs to bring to the table his own innate abilities, that's all.

    And I think he respectfully managed to get in just about every director he's worked with.-LOL! That was kind of a chuckle, but shows his true conscious nature. Maybe we'll see him proving himself to direct a day later also. Not sure what he's waiting for.

    Re: Directed by Matt Damon

    He did miss Kenneth Lonergan in the list.

    Matt's said before he won't direct anything he hasn't written himself (but Ben said that also I think). So the greater commitment will be to actually sitting down and writing (or co-writing) a future directing project.

    Compared to the small pix in the upper left corner, Matt seems far more relaxed and in tune with Lucy than when they were dating. I'm happy for him. (But I hope their nannies are legals)

    Ah, a suspicious mind - can't believe you actually asked/thought that!

    (I think the current arrangements currently have Lucy's sister and mother as nanny)
