Back on 30 Rock, Hereafter
  • Actress Sherri Shepherd tweeted that Matt was on the set of 30 Rock on Thursday, and later posted a photo of herself, Matt and Tracy Morgan. Matt was filming a scene for the season premiere. An article on Matt's return is at the NY Post.

    SherriEShepherd: OMG!! I’m on set @30 Rock next to Tina Fey & MATT DAMON is sitting behind me! I went over & said hi - think I just got pregnant! Jamal Damon

  • Here's the Toronto Film Festival schedule. Hereafter is only screening once, with no separate critics screenings.

    I’m Still Here – Friday September 10 at 10pm
    The Town – Saturday September 11 at 9.30pm
    Hereafter – Sunday September 12 at 9pm

  • From an AP article on fall movies:

    Matt Damon and director Clint Eastwood, who collaborated on last year's "Invictus," reunite for "Hereafter," a drama about a Frenchwoman, a British boy and an American man with unusual connections to death whose lives gradually intersect.

    Damon said the film seeks answers about the most serious question — is there an afterlife waiting for people when they die?

    "I have to believe there is. I guess I choose to believe there is," Damon said. "If I'm wrong and the light's just going to go out, then I'll be none the wiser. But it seems like a pretty cruel twist of fate if it's this and only this. I like to believe there's a bigger point."

  • Producer Robert Lorenz discussed the film in USA Today's fall preview, with another report at HitFix.

    Hey there, can I find a you tube of Matt's scenes only on 30 rock?

    Thanks you and do keep up the good work. :)

    Sure, I think it's out there, or at least the individual scenes are, including at the official NBC site. Just do a search... The episode's also probably available on certain download sites.

    I think the episode will also be aired again in the US next week.

    Matt's Return to 30 Rock

    Very much looking forward to Matt's return to this hilarious show. His latest projects are all varied and interesting, I really hope they achieve the success they deserve.

    I have high hopes for Hereafter; Clint Eastwood is on blistering form - at 80 he's at the top of his game, and True Grit should also do well, critically and hopefully at the box office.

    Like Matt I do believe that there is a bigger picture to our existence.

    Thank you for keeping this site going, I don't say it enough so - THANK YOU! Marcia

    30 Rock update

    From the Emmys:


    Liz Lemon's getting a boyfriend: "I shot with Matt Damon last week. He was hilarious," says 30 Rock's Tina Fey. "He's my boyfriend when the season begins. We find out he's a very, very sensitive gentleman with many emotions. Just an onslaught of emotions. Hopefully we'll see him again later in the season."

    An interesting YouTube video of a LA waiter describing his celebrity encounters, serving Matt on multiple occasions (including when he was with Winona). Lots of positive comments about Matt, and some tips on how he avoids being recognised:
