    I was actually able to stay up to see letterman. It was cute. Matt talked about being a London park a few years ago with lucy and isabella (she was one). They were the only ones there and then this Spanish couple walked by and the man asked Matt to take a pic. Matt obliged and went and put his arm around his wife and was like ok take the pic. The man gave him a WTF look. The man actually wanted Matt to take a pic of him and his wife. Lucy was doubled over laughing. Dave joked with Matt when he first came out asking him how was basic training because of his bald head. Talked about how Ben and him would come to new York at 14 & 16 and that Alexia is 13 now and could never imagine letting her do that.
    Has plenty of video of Stella slapping his bald head. Dave asked if anybody else had done that. He said no he's sure Lucy wanted to couple of times but didn't. And he did his Matthew Mc impression at the end. (didn't want to butcher his name)

    Ok that was about it. He did talk about the zoo movie but nothing we haven't heard. He knows it sounds horrible but Cameron crowe directed. You can delete this when it shows up on you tube but thought I recap for you since you're not able to on CBS site

    Re: Letterman

    Thanks for the summary. It was a surprising collection of old stories (except for the park one) - Stella slapping his head, trips with Ben to NY, auditioning for Mickey Mouse club, even how to sell Zoo. He did mention "my wife" about four times, including when Dave jokingly said he was talking too much ("Did my wife say that?")

    Re: Letterman

    Didn't mean to recap if you had already seen it. Didnt include the Mickey mouse thing but it was funny hearing him tell story. He did mention Lucy few times. About talking too much he said you should talk to my wife. (I guess Lucy thinks he talks too much?)

    I remember reading in a Spanish article he said he chooses what he will share. Enough to satisfy the question.

    Re: Letterman

    There's always other readers who can't watch the video - thanks for the summary.

    Matt never shares too much, which is why some stories are often-repeated.

    Loved the interview on Letterman, especially the story about the Spanish couple in the park - that was hilarious!

    According to this article Francis McDormand will also star in Matt's directorial debut along with Matt and John. http://entertainment.inquirer.net/23433/%E2%80%98bourne-legacy%E2%80%99-to-shoot-in-ph-in-january

    I like it. Francis a good actress and she has been friends with Matt for a long time.

    Re: New interview

    That looks to be such a good interview. I got a kick out of Lucy finding out their night was tweeted. I always seem to double post on someone. You can delete if you want.

    On a sidenote it looks like you can't search twitter anymore without signing up. Or that seems to be the case for me.

    Video from Mexico

    Here's the video Matt recorded for the International Senior Lawyers Project luncheon that he could not attend due to Elysium filming being delayed.

    Matt's in costume and on the set in Mexico, and there's some cool gear when he turns around during the video.
