Matt Damon News Column
Bourne, Liberace project updates
  • Matt talked about how Lucy keeps the family together at People.

    If Matt Damon wants to find out anything about his wife's pregnancy he just needs to ask their kids.

    "They track its progress in mommy's belly," he said Saturday while attending the Ante Up for Africa charity poker event in Las Vegas.

    The kids "are very excited" about another addition to the family, Damon, 39, said.

    But being a family man and major motion picture star isn't easy for the former Sexiest Man Alive. Damon credits "a great wife" for helping him juggle his responsibilities.

    "She really keeps it together," he said at the poker event at the Rio All Suites Hotel, hosted by Oceans 11 pal Don Cheadle. "We just talk it out and work it all out. You say, this is the job and this is the time commitment and this is where it will be. I’m a lot easier to hire if you’re doing movies in New York."

  • There was a pregnancy update mixed in with a report on the upcoming Liberace movie (now delayed until next summer) at the Las Vegas Sun.

    "Yeah, it's going to happen. We're going to do it next summer," Damon said as he slowed apace on his way to the poker table. "Stephen Soderberg is directing it. Michael Douglas is going to play Lee."

    "It's a terrific script," Damon continued. "Richard LaGravenese has written a really great script and, you know, hopefully it will be a really great movie. I don't see why it wouldn't be."

    Jerry Weintraub reportedly is producing the film, which is being shot to accommodate the family requirements of Douglas and Damon (he and his wife, Luciana, are expecting their third child in late November or early December). Damon said much of the film would be shot in L.A., particularly Liberace's stage show, though I would expect Liberace's old showrooms at the LV Hilton and Riviera would be at least considered for location shoots.

  • More photos from the poker event are at Socialite Life, Wicked Chops Poker, posh24.se and the Las Vegas Sun. A report on the event is Onlinepoker.net. Matt finished 26th out of 81 competitors.

  • There has been no change to Matt's position on returning to Bourne - from the Las Vegas Weekly.

    I asked Matt if he would film more of the Jason Bourne movies.

    "Absolutely yes," he said emphatically. "I love the character. I love the stories. But only if Paul Greengrass says he will direct again. So far, though, he’s decided not to. I’d definitely say yes if he went for it. I know he would have a great story, and it would protect the legacy of what we created. There would be no disappointment for anybody, but we wait. There are rumors about shooting again in the middle of next year, but nothing definite yet other than his no until there’s the right script -- a great script!"

    I chatted with Matt about the real-life Jason Bourne character who’d been in the news last week in L.A. when police just missed him after they raided an apartment and discovered a cache of weapons, counterfeiting equipment, high-range binoculars and narcotics alongside a 5-foot CIA mural. Brian Alexik vanished down a fire escape, but police captured him after a three-month chase. He’s remained silent so far.

    Matt said, "Fascinating, but I hadn’t heard a word about it. My head is under a rock. I don’t follow the news. I’m with my family whenever I can be, and I don’t bother keeping up with anything else when I’m able to spend time with them. They are the most important thing to me."

    A report on Matt's dinner with Don Cheadle after the poker event:

    Adjustment Bureau has been pushed back again. To March 4th..cause that date worked so well for GZ. Poor Matt. The buzz on the internet has been really good for the movie, so it must be really bad...or Universal is punishing Matt for not doing more Bourne movies.

    It may not be good news Adjustment Bureau being moved to next spring, but at least he won't have to promote a movie when his wife will be in the end stage of her pregnancy.

    I liked the Adjustment Bureau trailer (the 2nd one), but not sure it will be a big box office hit, like Green Zone will probably do better on DVD.

    You'v posted some lovely pics of him in Las Vegas, his smile always brightens my day. Marcia

    "Behind The Candelabra"

    How to go from Gordon to Glitter Man ! Michael Douglas IS Liberace !!! Hugh Jackman as the very young Liberace ? Robin Williams as Seymour Heller, Liberace's manager ? Kathy Bates as Frances, Liberace's mother ? Kirk Douglas as Liberace's father ? Gary Sinise as George, Liberace's brother ? Sally Field as Dora, George's wife ? Kurt Russell as Liberace Matt Damon IS Scott Thorson !!!!!
