EW interview, Ante Up For Africa
  • A quote from an upcoming interview with Matt in Entertainment Weekly has been posted at the New York Daily News:

    Unlike most Hollywood hotties, Matt Damon doesn’t have body issues. The Oscar-winner played a skinny killer dork in “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” but for his upcoming role as a mentally unstable whistleblower in “The Informant,” he happily gained 30 pounds.

    “I definitely got doughy,” Damon, now shrunken back to his former studly self, says in Entertainment Weekly. “I started eating like crazy and drinking dark beer. Between meals on set, I’d eat a No. 1 Value Meal at McDonald’s and then Doritos on top of it. It was absolute heaven."

  • A condensed video of highlights of Matt and Ben at the Ante Up For Africa poker tournament in Las Vegas is available in two parts at YouTube - part 1 and part 2. All clips of Matt are not included, although full coverage of the tournament (as covered on ESPN) is available in separate YouTube clips.

  • A press release advises that Matt will participate in an online poker tournament on Saturday to raise funds for Ante Up For Africa. Details of how to sign up are here.

    LOL-- "#1 value meal"? Matt, all you had to say is that you ate a Big Mac With Fries.
    I wonder if he supersized it. Damn, I'm hungry now.

    WB promotion, Ponyo

    This is cute. Warner Bros sent journalists a container of corn to promote The Informant:

    And Ponyo is getting great reviews, including four stars from Roger Ebert:
