NY screening, Today

  • Matt attended a screening of Elysium in NY solo on Tuesday night. Photos are at the Daily Mail, Just Jared and Zimbio.

  • Matt's interview on the Today show is available at NBC, with some quotes about this weekend's move to LA summarised here, with another report here.

    "Basically all of our friends with little kids are out there," said Damon. "We're a little conflicted. We love it here, we're really happy here and New York will always be here. It might just turn out to be a little jaunt out there and then a return.... It's hard to leave here."

  • Matt was asked about Benedict Cumberbatch's recent comments in this interview at Next Movie (also summarised at Vulture).

    NextMovie sat down with Damon this morning while he was promoting the sci-fi blockbuster "Elysium" and broached the subject of the possible budding bro-dom between the two. We brought up young Benedict's dream, to have a "hot night where we're all getting drunk and dancing and having a good time!"

    Damon said he hasn't yet met Cumberbatch, alongside whom he is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, but that he'd love to grab a beer with him sometime.

    And, yes, we know, talk is cheap, but for what it's worth, Damon's publicist stopped us on the way out to say she'd dropped a line to Cumberbatch's agent to make it happen.

  • Matt will have an on-air role in the upcoming climate change documentary:

    Showtime has a pair of documentary series in the works. "Years of Living Dangerously," produced by James Cameron and Jerry Weintraub, tackles climate change using celebrities like Matt Damon and Arnold Schwarzenegger as "correspondents."
