  • Matt took part in Tom Papa's 'Come to Papa' stand-up routine on Wednesday in NY. Photos are at Tom's Facebook page. The show will be re-broadcast on SiriusXM on Saturday. A summary of the show is at Laugh Spin.

  • An interview with Rob Lowe is at Deadline, and a tweet by Rob Lowe today:

    AwardsLine: Michael Douglas, Matt Damon and Steven Soderbergh have all won Oscars. What it like working with them?

    Lowe: You know going in that you’re surrounded and protected, so you’re free to really take chances. Steven’s career is based on taking chances, and then you see it happening on set—the level of confidence and mastery that he has. It’s like working with Coppola or Bob Zemeckis or any of the guys who have complete mastery of storytelling and working with actors. It’s in their DNA. And Matt has always been one of my favorite actors. I think of his performances in many movies, but especially in The Talented Mr. Ripley, as being as good as anyone could be. And he’s such a nice, decent, great man. Michael is a whole other beast. He is someone I grew up watching and hoping to emulate. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, which he produced and won an Oscar for, is the first movie I saw multiple times. That movie changed my life. I even brought a tape recorder into the theater once. And I studied his speeches in The American President before I auditioned for Aaron Sorkin and The West Wing.

    Comedy show pic with Matt :)

    Oh I know that I love him for everything that I see and who he is because he seems so sugar-sweet that I need!!!

    Just saw Behind the Candelabra

    It is a well-done movie - on of Steven Soderbergh's best. Michael Douglas does a great Liberace but Matt is a standout at Scott. I enjoyed it!

    Re: Zero Theorem

    I got interrupted and could only watch half the trailer and now it's down. Was Matt in any more of the long trailer after his appearance in Waltz's apartment?

    Re: Zero Theorem

    No, he wasn't in the trailer but was in one of the clips (with Waltz in the room). He wasn't in the other clips.

    Re: Zero Theorem

    Ah, thanks. The movie looks very Gilliamish.

    Various sightings of Matt on Cape Cod and in Provincetown today.

    Re: Sightings

    I'm wondering if those sightings are accurate? The Provincetown Film Festival has been going on for the last few days, but it's Matt Dillon that is being honored, not Matt Damon.

    It's possible that Matt Damon is on the Cape, but it seems like a coincidence that there are suddenly Matt Damon sightings in P-town when Matt Dillon happens to be there to receive a award.

    Re: Sightings

    You are probably right (again). There's a sighting of Matt on a plane from LAX to NYC today.

    And a sighting at the airport:

    Photos of Matt leaving LAX are at the photo agencies, including isopix.

    Re: Sightings

    Per people.com lucy was with him. No pics though. In that blurry twitpic that was posted it looks like he's sitting with someone with black hair. Im thinking its probably Lucy.
