Burn the Floor, sightings
  • Matt attended a performance of ballroom dancing show Burn The Floor on New York's Broadway Tuesday night. Dancer (and SYTYCD) judge Mary Murphy tweeted that Matt would be attending, and dancers Sarah and Jeremy later tweeted that Matt did attend and met cast members backstage. A photo of Matt with the cast is at the show's Facebook page. The New York Daily News also reported the sighting:

    Sighting: Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, checking out Broadway’s “Burn the Floor” on Tuesday.

  • Matt, Lucy and their kids spent New Year's Eve in Boston, with reports at the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald.

    Sighting: "Invictus" star Matt Damon and fam dining at Stephanie’s on Newbury...

    Where in the world was Matt Damon on New Year’s Eve? Apparently not in Sydney. Despite reports (including our own) that the hometown actor rang in 2010 on a cruise ship docked in Darling Harbor, Damon and his family were at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge for New Year’s weekend. We hear that Damon and wife Luciana barely left their room. Reports of Damon in Australia began surfacing in various Aussie newspapers shortly after Christmas. The Daily Telegraph reported that Damon was spotted in the country as recently as Friday. “Damon (or a man who looked suspiciously like him) happily signed autographs for staff and customers at the Batehaven Fish Shop on Sunday, warmly responding and signing the megastar’s name before signing a petition to support a local delicacy - vodka dipping sauce.’’ We wonder who Damon's doppelganger might have been - because as of Friday afternoon, he was checked in at the Charles.

  • Another True Grit script review is at Cinema Blend.

  • Matt is scheduled to start filming Hereafter in San Francisco on 18 January.

    upcoming filming

    What with Hereafter, True Grit, the Clooney project, and then Liberace, Matt sure has a busy schedule upcoming. I'm wondering if he'll use a Texas accent for True Grit, as he's playing a TX Ranger. He had a very good, subtle, one in All the Pretty Horses.

    I was disappointed to read that the Coen script (at least as described in cinemablend) concentrates on the relationship between Mattie and Rooster. Sounds like Matt won't be in it that much. This is the second script review that describes Matt's character as coming out the worse for wear. In the book he was injured twice, but didn't an earlier review (in latino review, maybe?) describe his injury as having comic potential? This reviewer seemed to see the whole thing more darkly...

    Re: upcoming filming

    Matt's character really wasn't in the original movie that much, and it wasn't a strong role. It's definitely a supporting role, but it should be a fun part (if he doesn't have to be around for the whole filming, and can just film his parts and go).

    Certainly if Matt's filming the Clooney project before the Liberace movie in June, then he'll be on the True Grit set for probably less than two months.

    The previous script review was from The Playlist.

    Is he living in New York or Miami now?

    Re: Paparazzi pic

    New York, but he still has the home in Miami. He'll be on location shooting though for most of the year (at least until August).

    Emily Blunt

    Emily Blunt talked about Matt in an interview with Reuters:

    Q: It, of course, was a comedy, and "Young Victoria" is a drama. Do you have a preference, comedy or drama?
    A: "I don't. I've done a lot of comedy. Right now I'm finishing a drama, which is really fun and it's contemporary, 'The Adjustment Bureau,' based on a Phillip K. Dick story. It's with Matt Damon."
    Q: What's he like?
    A: "He's just made for it, Matt. He's made for this job. He's the coolest guy. His family's wonderful. He is easy peasy to get along with, he really is."
