Berlin photos
  • Photos of Matt walking to his hotel in Berlin are at WENN (two below). Filming for Bourne Ultimatum in Berlin should now have ended and cast and crew will next move to New York.

    Matt Damon bids his German fans a warm Guten Tag while taking a break on the Berlin set of his action-thriller The Bourne Ultimatum on Thursday. This is the new dad's third outing as the amnesiac, former government assassin.

  • Update: Another report on Matt's possible involvement in Revolutionary Road is at the Daily Mail:

    Kate and Sam's Damon dealing

    Kate Winslet, one of three British Best Actress hopefuls at the Oscars, wants to star with Matt Damon in her first film with husband Sam Mendes.

    The couple want to adapt Richard Yates's post-war novel Revolutionary Road and Mendes hopes to direct the movie next year.

    Meanwhile, Damon, who has been working with director Paul Greengrass on The Bourne Ultimatum, has said he's not yet free to shoot Revolutionary Road, in which he and Kate would play Frank and April Wheeler, a couple living in the Connecticut suburbs in the Fifties who find that the American dream has passed them by.

    I understand, however, from those close to Mendes and his producers at BBC Films and John Hart productions that, although Damon hasn't signed up yet, he wants to do the film and all concerned are prepared to wait for him.

    Having read Yates's 1961 book, I can see that both Kate and Damon would be perfect as the Wheelers. We all know Kate can tackle anything, but Damon's no stranger to serious acting - just wait until you see him as a CIA spook in Robert De Niro's epic The Good Shepherd, which will have its European premiere next week at the Berlin Film Festival.

  • Update: Some quotes are appearing online from a likely print interview, perhaps timed to coincide with the UK release of The Good Shepherd - maybe Arena, GQ or Esquire (UK). The first quote was about George Clooney here, and the latest repeats the theme of a Washington Post interview in July 2004 - here.

    Hollywood actor MATT DAMON turns up to interviews as his alter ego 'Mr Smiley', in order to give away as little information as possible and keep his private life private. The 36-year-old - now a happily married father of one - credits ex-girlfriend and GOOD WILL HUNTING co-star MINNIE DRIVER for the useful tip, which Damon admits has helped him deal with life in the spotlight. He says, "Early in my career, Minnie told me to create a character. She told me that whenever I did interviews I should be this other guy, Mr Smiley. "I still bear that in mind 10 years later - this boring, smiley guy, turns up and does my interviews for me, which lets me get on with my life."

  • I'm on holidays for the next week and will be unable to update the site. Could readers please post any news, photo links etc in the comments section. Thank you.

    I agree. I think Kate is a great actress and I always thought that she and Matt would be good opposite each other. Jan

    Have a lovely holiday. Matt is on the cover of the latest issue of Empire magazine, also inside is an article on the filming of the Bourne Ultimatum. The issue is on sale in the UK now. I don't know how to link my emailed copy to your sight unfortunately, but maybe someone else can. MP

    Re: Telegraph interview

    oh my gosh, that interview was great! thanks for finding it and posting it! the part that really interested me was him and mark wahlberg creating a boxing movie together, hmmm.

    Great article, Jan. Probably the best I've read on MD in the last few years. I would never have seen it without your finding it. Thanks. Matt's values and early training certainly should speak to parents everywhere. As I've always said, this guy is the genuine article. I expect enormous things from him--even greater than the acting clinic he gives in TGS. I seriously believe that with the great directors, writers, and actors he's getting to know as close friends and with his own innate talents and perceptive abilities, he will one day make films as great and classic as "Citizen Kane" and "The Godfather". His work so far clearly points to it. Thanks again, Jan.

    Thanks for the article Jan it was great. The Good Sheperd is coming out in Australia on the 15th of Feb, so I will keep an eye out on any articles etc. that come out down under. Can't wait!!! Hopefully he is in Australia's edition of empire magazine. Glad to see other fans keeping up all the good work that is done on this site, it is certainly the best site around for Matt info.

    Found this Good Shepherd junket interview on you tube. I'm posting because it is a bit more interesting that most of the others.
