MTV Movie Awards, Ben as Darth Vader?
  • Matt was nominated for Best Male Actor at the MTV Movie Awards, and Bourne Supremacy for Best Action Sequence. Vote here for Matt as Best Actor and here for the Moscow chase sequence. You can probably vote more than once if you remove the cookie each time.

  • Star Wars producer Rick McCallum used an interesting analogy to describe Anakin's darker days:

    Q. Do you think some audiences are going to have a problem with Anakin mowing down a bunch of kids?

    A. He has to kill those kids because that's the only way he can get that power to be able to eventually work with Palpatine [the dark lord] to figure out a way to save his wife. He does it for kind of the right reasons, but if you put it in perspective, I always think of it as like watching Ben Affleck and Matt [Damon]. They wrote this thing ["Good Will Hunting"], they have this background together, they grew up together, they're best friends, and they're two totally different human beings right now. One is laid back, cool, does his work, works as best as he can, tries to be a good actor. The other one has taken the Dark Side, the dark route. It's just amazing.

    Q. Because Ben Affleck has embraced the whole celebrity aspect?

    A Yeah, the power thing.

  • Actor Chad Michael Murray describes his upcoming role as "what would happen if Matt Damon's character in Good Will Hunting was sent to prison."

  • This "story" doing the rounds but originally from the UK 'Sun' titled 'Damon's brush with death' is completely false - it's about Matt Dillon (and probably isn't even true).

    If the UK "Sun" wants any credibility they'll have to get their "Matts" straight. There is a movie called FACTOTUM, but the Matt in question is Matt Dillon, not Matt Damon. Now, whether the helicopter story is true...

    And in looking for FACTOTUM in imdb.com, some folks are saying that it's a pretty good movie.
