Disneyland, documentary
  • Matt and family enjoyed a day at Disneyland on Friday. Promotional photos by Disney Parks of Matt and Lucy with Mickey Mouse are at PopSugar, People and Celebuzz.

  • As mentioned previously, Matt recorded the narration for a new documentary at Kenny G's studio on Wednesday. The title of the film is American Teacher (or The Teacher Salary Project), which will have its world premiere on 3 May at the San Francisco Film Festival. Details of the project:

    THE TEACHER SALARY PROJECT is a feature-length documentary film, interactive online resource, and national outreach campaign that delves into the core of our educational crisis as seen through the eyes and experiences of our nation's teachers. This project is based on the New York Times bestselling book Teachers Have It Easy by journalist and teacher Daniel Moulthrop, co-founder of the 826 National writing programs Nínive Calegari, and writer Dave Eggers. THE TEACHER SALARY PROJECT is produced by Eggers and Calegari, and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth.

  • Matt will attend a Cancer Center fundraiser in Boston on 1 June - details from the Boston Globe.

    Damon, by the way, will be the special guest at Mass General Cancer Center’s annual “100’’ fund-raiser, which will be held June 1 at the Westin Boston Waterfront. Chairing the event are Senator John Kerry and wife Teresa Heinz, Jonathan Kraft and wife Patti, and Stephen Lang and wife Laura.

    Bourne Legacy

    I know that Matt is a talented actor who can do a variety of roles. But the truth is that I am sad that he did not continue (I hope only temporarily) with the Bourne saga. Jason Bourne is a character he modeled by creating a new style of action hero, which was then copied by all the actors of the genre (Liam Neeson in Taken, for example) Hey, if even James Bond himself had adjustments to accommodate this new type of hero / spy. And Jeremy Renner is a good actor, but I do not know if it's up to Matt. And if the new film is very successful, Will Matt & Paul do another Bourne movie?

    Re: Bourne Legacy

    Matt has constantly said he and Paul may do a movie in five years when the rifts have mended and they have come up with an appropriate story. He doesn't think there's a reason for another movie, it's purely a cash-grab exercise by Universal, and there's no genuine way to continue the story and maintain integrity. It's not an issue about money.

    If they come up with a decent story involving his character, he'll take part and convince Paul.

    Re: Mickey Mouse

    I'm sure they did - they were just being protective and not exposing the kids in the public photos. Lots of sightings of Matt and family around the park, but no photos.

    the kids and photos

    I gotta say again how much I respect Matt for never selling out his kids for cheap publicity.

    Re: the kids and photos

    Agreed. We didn't get any photos of Matt and Ben at the Red Sox game last Friday, but here's some photos of Matt leaving the Prince concert last Saturday solo:


    And a photo of Matt with his on-set kids via the Facebook page of Chick-fil-a, who catered on the set of WBAZ near the end of the shoot:

    Jodie Foster talks about Elysium and wanting to work with Matt:


    "I'm kind of evil-ish, yes, I'm kind of evil-ish, which you know I love," she said. "I'm just excited to work with Neil Blomkamp, the director of "District 9," which I think is pretty much as close to a perfect film that I can think of, and Matt Damon, who I'm a big fan of, and Sharlto Copley."
