Matt Damon News Column
Interviews, Springfield filming
  • Video interviews with Matt and crew members of The Informant in Decatur are at WAND-TV (two segments). In the interview Matt says he is wearing a fake nose and cheek implants in addition to the moustache, wig and glasses, and discusses his respect for director Steven Soderbergh.

    Soderbergh will be in Cannes for the next few days presenting his two Che movies and filming is not expected to resume until Friday in St Louis.

  • A report on recent filming in Illini and Springfield is at the State Journal-Register, including:

    Sunday’s filming featured a scene in which Damon’s character, Mark Whitacre, is subject to an FBI raid inside a Decatur country club. The film’s crew went to extensive lengths to transform Illini, even stenciling the Decatur restaurant’s logo on windows.

    The actors all were pleasant, and Calvin said he had an opportunity to see Damon’s human side, even though he wasn’t allowed to speak with him.

    “When he arrived (at the country club), the first thing he did was order dinner and watch the Celtics game at the bar,” Calvin said.

    Damon lives in the Boston area, and the Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to advance to the Eastern Conference championship of the NBA.

  • In a story at ABC News/Nightline Us Weekly magazine's news photo editor Peter Grossman discussed his magazine's subjects.

    He says that the people who get the most coverage are simply asking for it, in the places they go and the things they do. And as proof, he points to mega-stars who do manage to maintain private lives.

    "You know, the thing is, there are some celebrities that absolutely get it," Grossman said. "One of my favorite celebrities is Matt Damon. He's smart enough to not live in certain parts of Los Angeles and to not go in places where celebrities are always having their picture taken and he didn't marry another celebrity and he's the kind of person that has it all. You can look at him and say it is possible."

  • A behind-the-scenes look at The Good Shepherd, with writer Eric Roth, Matt, Angelina Jolie and Robert De Niro is available here. A short video interview from Boston with Matt and Raun Ruffin is here. Thanks to Maureen.

    Matt's cameo in one of the Che movies (I think Guerilla) has been confirmed, and he does speak Spanish.

    An article on State Rep. Allen Vaught, who was cast in Green Zone.

    Of note, the real-life soldiers wore their own uniforms on set, and Vaught is in a scene with Paul Rieckhoff, executive director and founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. All dialogue in the scene was improvised.


    Matt's also pictured with Vaught and Imperial Life author Rajiv Chandrasekaran.

    Decatur on the 22nd??

    Hi - I'm going to be in Decatur on May 22nd - any idea if he will be there and the best spot to go to join the adoring crowd?

    Re: Decatur on the 22nd??

    He's left already - filming finished in Decatur last Saturday. As started in the post, filming is in St Louis on Friday and Chicago on Saturday.

    The local TV report on WAND-TV was very wrong.

    Re: St Louis

    Felicity, I know this has been said before but I think it should be said again - many thanks for your work on this site. I know I appreciate it deeply as I'm sure many of us do. There have been times when stress levels of life are high and the news and pictures on this site simply make my day.

    Re: St Louis

    Thanks Maureen. The site's always been fun, and I'll stop if it ever becomes work. But it's never meant to be one way: the site's empty without reader feedback and contributions.

    Advocate article

    Knowing you, this is probably already on your site somewhere, but in case it's not, there's a scan of Matt's 2000 interview with the Advocate at http://lulubellnyc.livejournal.com/6396.html

    Re: Advocate article

    Thanks, I saw a reference to that link. I can't really remember, but I think the article was posted at the time on the old site.

    Thanks for that. It appears to have breached just about every rule of the confidentiality contract the guy should have signed.
