Derby win, TV references

  • From the NY Post:

    Some folks have all the luck. Matt Damon took his girlfriend, Luciana Barroso, to O'Neill's in Maspeth, Queens, to watch the Kentucky Derby and she ended up winning $15,000, sources said.

  • Thanks to Sandi for this summary of Matt's 'cameo' on Law and Order: Criminal Intent:

    It was about these two guys who moved to New York to act. One friend was more popular than the other. The less popular guy was always riding his friend's coat tails.

    The less popular guy lost his big break when he auditioned for a bit-part for a movie with Matt Damon and blew his audition. At the end of the episode, the cops are viewing the audition tape, and we hear Matt in the background 'Take it easy buddy, we got time'. The guy was messing up his lines and Matt was heard saying 'It's cool, we've got plenty of film, let's just relax, it's no big deal.' Then the guy walks off the screen and we hear Matt say 'Wait, did he just leave? He left?'

  • And thanks to Steph for her summary of a Family Guy skit:

    I was watching Family Guy last night (5/8) on Fox, and they had a little bit about Matt and Ben writing Good Will Hunting. It had Matt on the computer finishing the script, and Ben on the couch saying "hey man, put my name on that". It was mostly making fun of Ben, but it was a cute little scene.
