  • 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.
