Elysium, Clinton Concert

  • Photos of Matt walking to his trailer on (possibly) his last day of Vancouver filming for Elysium are at Zimbio, via Punkd Images. Matt's walking with his costumer Barnaby and assistant Colin.

  • A casting call for Mexican extras for Elysium is at Extras Casting Mexico.

  • A quote from producer Jerry Weintraub about the Liberace film:

    Adds Weintraub, "I've wanted to make a film about Liberace for a very long time, and after the amazing experience I had with HBO on ‘His Way,’ I knew that they were absolutely the right place for this movie. I am thrilled that we have the incomparable Michael Douglas to inhabit the role of Liberace, as well as the exceptional Matt Damon to play the pivotal part of Scott Thorson. Putting these two fine actors in the creative hands of Steven Soderbergh -- it doesn’t get better than that!"

  • Matt participated in a Funny Or Die video shown at the Clinton Foundation Concert over the weekend. The video is available at, with stills below. Matt appears to have filmed his part without the other actors in the room.

    Just for laughs: Clinton’s Hollywood fans provided a video spoof staged at his foundation’s New York office, where Ben Stiller led a lame brainstorming session with such activists as Matt Damon and Ted Danson. Sean Penn’s proposal? “Do not steal my lunch from the break room fridge.” Impersonating Clinton, Kevin Spacey calls in and deems the ideas brilliant before the real Clinton arrives clutching Penn’s lunch.

    “The film was a hoot, wasn’t it?” Clinton said after the screening. “I’m going to spend the rest of my life trying to steal Sean Penn’s lunch…I want to thank Kevin Spacey, who really can do me better than I can.”

  • A quote from Sean Penn from a recent Piers Morgan interview:

    MORGAN: What to you is great acting?
    PENN: Well, let's see. I think probably -- it's, you know, I could like -- Philip Seymour Hoffman is as great an actor as -- as we've ever had. I mean I think that--
    MORGAN: Do you think that?
    PENN: Yes. Yes. And -- and, by the way, some handsome guys like Matt Damon are, too.
