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.”
