Candid photos, Entourage, Ponyo
  • Photos of Matt and Lucy at Madeo Restaurant in LA on Sunday night are at Just Jared. Video is also available here.

  • Jeremy Piven has revealed that Matt will be a guest on the next season of Entourage here.

    Jeremy - who plays Ari Gold - said: "I just wrapped the night before last and I think this is the best season, I know you hear people say that all the time, but I think that Doug Ellin, our writer, is writing with a chip on his shoulder, I think he's really hungry right now."

    "We had 50 Cent, Tom Brady, Matt Damon, we almost had Kobe but he had to win that little trophy that the kids win for doing exceptional things, it's been amazing."

  • Ponyo screened at the Los Angeles Film Fest on Sunday, but Matt did not attend. An early review from Drew (Moriarty) at HitFix is here, and Frank Marshall discussed how the voice actors became involved at the LA Times.

    One way to increase attention was to line up a strong voice cast, which includes Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cate Blanchett, Liam Neeson, Betty White, Lily Tomlin and Cloris Leachman. Miley Cyrus' kid sister, Noah, supplies the voice of Ponyo.

    "We wanted well-known people," says Marshall. "A lot of them are friends and lot of them have kids. For example, Matt Damon didn't know about Miyazaki. When I sent him a few of the films, he said, 'I'm in.' They wanted to be a part of it."

  • The Boston Globe reported on the photos from the Invictus set which appeared in April but were 're-discovered' by various bloggers and claimed as exclusives.

    According to Seth Rotherham, who... posted this picture on his popular South African blog, Damon is well liked around Cape Town. "Friends of mine involved in the movie say Matt is a complete gentleman and has won over everyone," Rotherham told us.

    video and speculation

    Awww... Matt is so genuinely sweet to fans ... what a class guy.

    And speculation on an unrelated issue ... Considering that Moneyball is in turnaround and Jackman's exit from the Cleopatra project means that is also becoming less likely to happen, do you think that Soderbergh's Liberace project will be pushed forward on the schedule?

    Re: video and speculation

    I don't think so. Matt starts Adjustment Bureau in September and Liberace's not yet ready to go (and is planned for February anyway). But reading the developments about the Moneyball project has been fascinating, and the book has got its own charm.

    A photo of Matt on the set of Entourage today is at this Twitter page:

    Small photos of Matt filming with the Entourage cast on Monday are at Ramey:

    I can pick out Kevin Dillon and Adrian Grenier was also on set. Can anyone identify other cast members?

    And a report on the Madeo dinner with friends (including Marc and Christine Joubert) is at People:

    Meanwhile, also at Madeo, Matt Damon and wife Luciana were eating with Jeremy Piven and a group of 10 friends. "Lucy was sitting next to another woman, chatting it up," the onlooker tells us. The whole group toasted, raising their wine glasses at one point. Meanwhile, Damon ate pasta and Piven opted for a veal dish.

    The trailer for The Informant has been released on Apple's trailers page (also supposedly on Tuesday's Entertainment Tonight in between Jackson coverage).

    Also available at this site:

    The poster's also wacky - available here:

    The Informant Poster

    Love the poster; there's a look of almost manic fervour in his eyes, and the moustache is a perfect touch.

    I think the movie will be really funny, but in a very dark way. Looking forward to seeing it. Marcia

    Obama supporter?

    Hey Matt, looks like you backed someone that doesn't know squat about balancing a check-book let alone the US economy. You wanted a change - hope you are gonna love being taxed to death on your big pay checks.
