Report on filming and Whitacre

Lucy and kids met Matt after the morning's filming at the Hog Trough on Sunday for a Mother's Day lunch. Cute.

There's an article at the Chicago Tribune about the filming of The Informant, ADM scandal and Whitacre:

(A picture of the cement deer is available on the blog of actor Tom Wilson: http://tomwilsonusa.blogspot.com/ )

Free after serving eight years and eight months in federal prison, Whitacre reluctantly supports the production, too, and considers Damon a good choice to play him because of his psychological intensity, if not his looks. "My kids tell me he is, like, the sexiest man alive. I'm 50 years old and bald-headed," he said.

Whitacre had moved into a horse estate once owned by patriarch Dwayne Andreas in Moweaqua, 20 miles south of town. Soderbergh has restored it to its early-1990s condition for the movie, including a pair of fake deer in the front yard.

Down the road, at Moweaqua's Hog Trough Too restaurant, a movie crew hung plaid wallpaper and painted the wainscoting a handsome shade of red in preparation for a shoot. They also ordered barbecue ribs to go—for 100. "It's been a nice boost to the economy around here," said owner Angie Knight.

Re: Report on filming and Whitacre

They ate at the Hog Trough? That's too fabuous for words. Mother's Day, yet. Welcome to the glamorous midwest, Matt.

Do you have any idea what Tim Cain is referring to in his "What I like About Matt Damon" column when he says, "... none of these has anything to do with anything that may or may not have transpired over the weekend." ??? What transpired? I'm SO curious, and thought if anybody would know, you would!

I don't know, but guessed that Matt may have done an interview with him.
