  • The Coen brothers discussed their plans for True Grit here. The film may be shot in Oklahoma, but there are disputes over tax incentives.

    Question: What's next for you?

    Joel: "We're doing an adaptation of a Charles Portis novel called True Grit, which was made into a movie in the late 1960s with the late John Wayne. It's a Western and it's going to star Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin. I don't know if we’ve always wanted to make a Western. This was just a novel we both really liked, and the opportunity was there to do it."

  • Shakira discusses her song which references Matt again at EW:

    Shakira fears she'll have to write to Matt Damon's wife and apologise for namechecking her man on her new album. The Colombian pop star pines for the movie star in the lyrics of Men In This Town and can only hope his wife isn't upset with her.

    She tells Entertainment Weekly, "I know Matt and his wife. We have friends in common. I hope she's not mad at this. He's one of those good men. He's really something. Maybe I should send an apologetic note to the wife and say, 'Hey, I'm taken too, don't worry'."

  • Matt is in People magazine's sexiest men alive list - from the Boston Herald:

    As for Matt, his "The Informant" co-star Melanie Lynskey gushed to People that Damon is sexy because he's a "warm and welcoming" kinda guy.

    "He loves his job so much, is so prepared and having such a good time, that it's impossible to not feel happy working with him," she said.

    I noticed that Matt was quoted in Parade as saying that Rugby is a young man's game and that he relied on his doubles a fair bit. I beg to differ. I have been playing Rugby since 1973 and I still play. In the Can-Am tournament in Saranac lake, New York, there are several Old Boys Divisions, including one for 50 and over players. That bracket has had 8 teams in it for the last couple of years.

    I play in Flint, MI and my rugby nickname is Dr Death.
