  • Clint Eastwood talked about The Human Factor to MTV:

    MTV: And you're going to be reteaming with Morgan Freeman, directing him as Nelson Mandela in "The Human Factor"?
    Eastwood: Yes, that's something we're talking about doing around the first of next year. Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. It's a very good script.
    MTV: Is there any role in that for you?
    Eastwood: Nope. "Gran Torino" is a short movie. It's very condensed. It won't take very long. I'll do that one for me and then I'm back...

  • An extended clip of Matt's comments at the Spike TV Awards is here.

    (Pirate voice) Arrrrrghhh! It's the great white whale!!

    Ha, ha, ha. He looks hysterical. I heard the Informant was a black comedy - they must have been referring to his wardrobe. Not for nothing is he called an "egoless actor".

    But it'll be great to see him back in great shape when he plays Francois Pienaar. Those rugby guys are all muscle.

    Re: Matt

    OMG!! Ha, ha ha.

    There are really some priceless comments at e and jezebel. Most seem to get that Matt's in character and are just poking good-natured fun. My 2 favorite suggested headlines are "The Bourne Expansion" and "the man that ate Jason Bourne"... really funny.
    Thanks, as always,

    I have to say the comments are hilarious.

    Re: Matt

    Yes, he is an egoless actor. Who else would do this when they are the current "sexiest man alive"?

    Wow... that's... yeah. Well, we all know what this means: Oscar. The formula: Hot actor/actress + dedication to the fugliness of their rolls...er, roles = Oscar gold. :-P

    Now Mr. Clooney gets his revenge for all the fat jokes I'm sure he endured during/after Syriana, aheh aheh aheh...

    I'm actually far more amused by the fake chest hair ^_^

    P.S. - If the chest hair looks like it's missing a chunk or two, it's because his character has to have sections of his chest hair shaved off.

    Okay, now I'm picturing Joel McHale shaving Matt's man-titties :-/ Disturbing... but an amusing part of the book!

    You're right. It's Oscar time for Matt. This will be the role(roll) that does it for him.

    I'm going to have to read the book. It sounds fascinating.

    Well we'll see... I was sort of just being facetious, but who knows!

    As for the book, yeah, I'm almost through it (it's long, but a shockingly fast read!) Though the whole premise of the story sounds a bit on the boring side (let's face it, who really wants to read about price-fixing?), it's extremely fascinating. Especially Mark Whitacre! What's great about the book is that, if you didn't tell someone it was a COMPLETELY TRUE story, they would easily be fooled into thinking a John Grisham-type wrote it. In fact, I still can't believe everything I'm reading is true...

    Then again, as they say, 'Truth is stranger than Fiction' ;-)

    If they're releasing it in March, it's very unlikely to be an Oscar contender.

    John Grisham is really the fabulous writer and among all his works the evergreen books are : A time to Kill, The Associate, The firm etc and the new Ford County. His writings are great.
