"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."
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.
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."
