    Matt Damon is returning to his academic roots on Thursday. The Oscar award-winning actor will be visiting Harvard as the recipient of the 2013 Harvard Arts Medal, despite attending the College from 1988 to 1992 but never graduating.

    Presented by the Office for the Arts at Harvard and the Board of Overseers, the ceremony will include a discussion with Damon on his life and career, moderated by fellow actor and Harvard alum John Lithgow of “3rd Rock from the Sun” fame. The event will mark the official opening of Arts First, an annual festival highlighting student creativity in the arts.

  • Matt attended press conferences for Elysium and Monuments Men, where George Clooney and Grant Heslov connected via Skype from Germany, at the Summer of Sony 2013 in Cancun last weekend.

  • A new poster for Behind the Candelabra is at EW. The jury at the Cannes Film Festival will include Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee and Christoph Waltz, and the jury president is Steven Spielberg.
