Matt Damon News Column
Spanish interview, Arthur
  • A Spanish interview with Matt is here, conducted while Matt is on 'holiday' in Cadiz, with a photo from here.

  • An excerpt from the Guardian review of Bourne Ultimatum.

    It's all very absurd, but there's no doubt about it: the Bourne franchise delivers more entertainment-bangs for your buck than anything else comparable. And it's an action movie with an IQ.

  • More on Matt's appearance on Arthur, from the Boston Globe:

    Matt Damon is on the big screen as Jason Bourne, the amnesiac former assassin in "The Bourne Ultimatum."

    But on Labor Day, Damon will have a much fuzzier role in an animated guest appearance on "Arthur," the PBS children's show about a friendly aardvark. Damon will play himself, bedecked with bear ears, as part of "Postcards from You," an initiative to encourage young viewers to make their own videos.

    "As we were thinking of possible guests, Matt Damon made sense," said Pierre Valette, the show's executive producer, based at WBGH in Boston.

    Damon's a filmmaker, he's from the Boston area, he's a young father and the head writer -- Peter Hirsch -- was Damon's classmate at Harvard, Valette said. Valette said the actor took a break from filming "The Bourne Ultimatum," to tape "Arthur" at a studio in Miami, when an animator also drew the actor.

    When the producers were creating Damon's characters' surroundings, they turned to works by his brother, Cambridge-based artist Kyle Damon, for inspiration.

    "I thought why not decorate his studio and his home with his brother's artwork," Valette said.

    The show will air on PBS stations nationwide on Sept. 3.

    Matt has just been interviewed on the red carpet by Sky TV at the London premiere of Ultimatum. Typically it was raining. Matt looked great and very young I thought - and he can't half talk! Nothing new. BBC News 24 are also just about to go live. So currently a lot of channel hopping! Hopefully both will appear on the channels' websites soon. Jan

    Replying to myself....just caught the BBC News 24 interview - again nothing new apart from Matt saying that he enjoys the red carpet thing more these days as he feels more comfortable at them. And I'll say it again - he is looking mighty fine - can't wait for the pictures to appear! Jan

    You'll have to fight me for her dress Jan, gorgeous, I love that she's wearing colours now. With her beautiful skin tone she can wear really strong colours, she seems to be growing in confidence as an A-lister wife.

    Matt was on GMTV this morning, I only caught the very end of the interview. He discussed how being up with his daughter at night gave him the exhausted look Paul Greengrass wanted Bourne to have (which has been mentioned before). He praised his wife, and was smiling and happy throughout. He looked so amazing, tanned and totally at ease and boy can he talk! He must be a godsend to interviewers.

    He was also on Capital Radio last night, again only caught the end, you could hear the rain throughout the short interview. He did mention that he enjoyed visiting London, and wanted to see some plays when he was filming Ultimatum, he especially wanted to see Frost/Nixon, but ended up going to see The Sound of Music with his stepdaughter and other child-friendly theatre instead. He wasn't complaining he seems to be really enjoying his life at the moment. He was really cheerful and full of positive energy. Marcia

    I was wondering about GMTV. I have it recorded so will watch later. Matt does look really well and happy - seems much more confident in his own skin now. He actually looked like he was enjoying himself last night. Shame about Prince upstaging Matt - he is on the front of Metro - it should have been Matt on the cover. Jan
