beekeeping with grandad and movies

It's hard to believe there could be such an curious little sidebar to Matt's life that you didn't already know about. Interesting, if true. Wasn't one of Matt's grandfathers Finnish?

And I am beside myself with excitement to see all of Matt's movies this year. All so different and so interesting... Willy Loman on acid? Bring it on!!

Re: beekeeping with grandad and movies

The Finnish grandfather is definitely true - here's a look at Matt's family history (and it seems accurate):

I just wish 'The Informant' was showing in Cannes, as once scheduled. It would be a great contrast to the majority of the movies showing there (ie light, fun) and some press before October (amidst the onslaught of other movies) would have been fantastic.

Matt was scheduled to attend (via Internet reports) the poker tournament in Cannes on Tuesday, but he's unlikely to go, I would think, as he has no films there (and Ben was scheduled to go but he's still filming in Boston).

There's a new photo of Matt leaving a golf course in Miami at picapp.com, with more at http://www.popsugar.com/3152489.
