If I had a scanner, I'd scan my copy of the magazine. It's a neat little article with some of how the film came to be, and comments about making the film. The interview was done with Matt and Michael in February in NYC. I was a little dissapointed that there weren't more photos of Matt in character, there are only two, one looking away and one small one with Michael posing. The cover is the best photo in the issue. It'll be very interesting to see how this movie is received. I'm very proud of Matt, he is fearless!

Thanks for that. The scans will eventually come online.

Debbie Reynolds has posted a pic of herself in character as Liberace's mother:

Interview

Some of the EW interview from the Boston Globe:

In the new issue of “Entertainment Weekly,” the two actors reveal they’d talked for years about making the movie. Damon says Soderbergh gave him a copy of Thorson’s book in 2007 and said: “ ‘You and Michael Douglas.’ And I say, ‘Get the [expletive] out. What are you talking about?’ But I went home and read the book, and the next day I was like, ‘What is this going to be?’ He said he had Richard LaGravenese to write it, and I said, ‘I’m in. Whatever it is, it’s going to be great.’ ” It also sounds like we’re going to see a lot of Damon’s derrière because the actor got regular spray tans on his bum during filming. Says Douglas: “I don’t know any actors of Matt’s caliber who would be willing to take on the part of Scott. I thought it was really courageous. It just shows you the width and breadth of his career. But I don’t think at my prime at his age I would’ve had the courage to take this part on.”
