  • Jason Isaacs discusses upcoming re-shoots for Green Zone here.

    Jason Isaacs reports the third season of his Peabody Award-winning "Brotherhood" Showtime series will wrap production on Election Day, and sometime after that he'll be off to finish shooting of Paul Greengrass's highly anticipated "Green Zone" with Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear -- a film that started production in January and has locationed for months in Spain and Morocco.

    "It's a very different, amazing experience," says the actor also known as Death Eater Lucius Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" movies. "It takes all your normal props away, and you're not quite sure what is going to happen next. I made a mistake previously in an interview implying that it's all made up. There is a script -- a cracking script," Isaacs notes, referring to the screenplay penned by Helgeland and Greengrass. "But the process is different."

    "We're actually going back to do more. Matt Damon had to go do another film, but this gives Brian Helgeland time to write a fantastic ending," Isaacs says.

  • Greg Kinnear also spoke about the film:

    To make his next film, "Green Zone," Greg Kinnear reunited with "Stuck on You" sibling Matt Damon. It's a thriller instead of a comedy, and it takes place in Iraq, but the biggest difference was the angle.

    "This was fun to not have to be stuck to Matt for the entire film," says Kinnear. "To actually do scenes where we don't have to twist our necks at 45-degree angles in order to have a conversation was quite nice.

    "We were doing our first scene together, I was like, 'Hey, we've never acted like this before. I've never seen both your eyes in a scene before.'"

  • Linked here are interesting, fun and self-deprecating videos of Matt introducing the recent Conde Nast event and the whole speech at the Clinton Global Initiative panel.

  • Arden Myrin, who plays Matt's secretary in The Informant, discussed the film at the Chicago Sun-Times.

    She's in the current Tim Robbins movie "The Lucky Ones" and recently shot scenes for Steven Soderbergh's "The Informant," opposite a bulked-up Matt Damon.

    "Thank God," Myrin said. "If it was supercute Matt Damon, I would just be all awkward and weird and nervous. He was still Matt Damon, but like a little more human."
