    Like the pics

    Really like the pictures. Matt always looks like the nice guy that lives across the street -- granted, the charming chap with the dazzling smile that oozes intelligence and sincerity. He doesn't give off the put upon star look like a lot of his contemporaries and reminds me of Paul Newman, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, etc. on how he conducts himself in the public arena. He doesn't jump off couches and get pictured with the international model of the month -- he's real.
