  • Matt has been filming Entourage in Los Angeles for the past two days. Small photos of Matt on set with the cast are at Ramey, and one blogger's encounter with Matt on set is here.

  • A report on Matt and Lucy's dinner on Sunday night at Madeo 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.

  • An update on ONE.org's campaign to support clean water legislation is at the Huffington Post.

    the trailer

    It looks great! They really seem to have caught the flavor of the book, which I would have believed was impossible. The character is so committed as he spins the most amazing, self-destructive lies. Matt must have had a field day with this character. He's the antithesis of Jason Bourne in every way possible.

    And it can only help box office in this climate that it's humorously cynical about the world of big business. Very high energy trailer, too. And the music, "would I lie to you" is a perfect choice. I was looking forward to this movie and now even more so. Looks like Matt has made another smart, interesting film choice, and pushed himself again to do a character unlike anything he's ever done. Thanks!

    Initial contact

    I was told to try and reach Matt Damon regarding his work with Green Light, because of a sitcom idea that I'm told should be a rousing success. If this comment reaches him, perhaps he'll be interested enough to contact me. Several high up people have assured me of the probable success of this venture. Looking forward to hearing from someone. My email address is jill1949@live.com

    Re: Initial contact

    This isn't an official site and I have no contact with Matt.

    Try contacting Matt through his agent at the old Endeavour address. Best wishes.

    Hate it!

    Sorry, but I hate the poster. Sure, it's in character for the movie, but still hate it! Am sure I'll love the movie though! Glad Matt's doing Entourage, bet it'll be a blast to see. As always, thanks for keeping this site updated so frequently! Take care, Cheryl

    My mom and dad saw the completed movie last week

    I enjoy your website and thanks for keeping it updated. My father is Mark Whitacre. My parents were at Warner Brothers (WB) in Burbank, California for two days last week. During their meetings, WB showed the completed movie to my mom and dad in a private screening. They both really enjoyed the movie and support it. I cannot wait to see it myself. WB told my parents that they are allowed to discuss publicly about their visit to WB and that they enjoyed the movie, but they are not allowed to discuss details of the movie until it is released in September.

    Re: My mom and dad saw the completed movie last week

    Thanks so much for the information and for being a reader of the site.

    Based on the information in Tim Cain's column at the Herald-Review it appeared your father was not unsupportive of the movie. I am very pleased that your parents liked it and are able to support the film. I hope that any upcoming publicity or media scrutiny that may be misguided will not cause you or your family any ill feelings or harm.

    Re: My mom and dad saw the completed movie last week

    We are excited about the movie and embrace it. We liked the script well before the movie was filmed. My parents are used to media attention, especially when the case broke wide open years ago in 1995. And not all of it was positive. The FBI and Warner Brothers have been very supportive of my dad over the past couple years. My dad admits openly to all of the crazy things he did prior to being treated for BiPolar. Nothing anyone can say can hurt us now. If they knew my parents, they would not say such things. My mom was the one who started the case anyway, not my dad.
