Miami candids, Leno
  • Photos of Matt jogging in Miami with his father Kent are at Mavrix Online.

    Matt Damon and his dad Kent sure picked a great spot to go jogging just before Thanksgiving. The father and son team ran together down by the beach in Miami's South Beach but Damon's dad, a former stock broker, could only keep up for half the jaunt. The Oscar-winning actor got to the finish line a couple of minutes ahead of his dad and was, of course, sporting a Boston Red Sox hat to support his favorite team.

  • Update: One of the photos is at People, with an OTT caption:

    Sexiest Man Alive Matt Damon manages to smolder – even during a jogging break Tuesday in Miami.

  • An early appearance by Matt on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno will air again next week.

    NBC is digging deep into the "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" vault with five vintage episodes featuring the first headliner appearances of five of today's biggest stars.

    "Leno" will rerun a 1992 episode with Tom Hanks, a 1993 segment with Julia Roberts, a 2000 appearance by Matt Damon, and 1995 episodes featuring Jennifer Aniston and Johnny Depp.

    Are they repeating these old episodes because of the writers strike? I'm really suffering Daily Show withdrawal symptoms at the moment.

    Unfortunately I can't get hold of People in the part of London I live and work in, and unlike Jan I won't be near an airport any time soon (thanks for your nice comment by the way, missed you on here as well), otherwise I'd buy a copy (just to support Matt you understand).

    Do you have any news on when the documentary he narrated 'Running the Sahara' I think it was called will be released, especially internationally? The premiere in Canada was a while ago and I've heard nothing about it since. Cute pic of him running with his dad too. Marcia

    Hi Marcia. The talk show repeats are because of the writer's strike - just one way to fill a week.

    I don't think Running the Sahara has a distributor yet, but the last I read it was going to be released in February or March 2008.

    And it is nice to see Matt's dad with him for Thanksgiving (next likely photo op will be a game of golf). He'll probably return to Boston with Matt for the Red Sox launch next Monday.

    I'm stressing about buying my copy of People at the airport tomorow ;-) Thought I would buy a copy of The Times at the same time - might make it less embarrassing!!!

    Matt has been named one of EW's 25 Entertainers of the year (in the most popular section):

    Cool! And I finally picked up my copy of the People SMA issue at the airport newsstand earlier today.
