  • Matt and Ben are involved in a fundraiser for their charities at For a donation to their charities, you can win a day with Matt and Ben and attend an event on 22 February. More details are at USA Today.

    Affleck and Damon are offering a chance to hang out with them in Hollywood, for a $10 donation. The winner of the drawing, plus one, will be flown to Los Angeles to spend the day with the two Oscar winners at an exclusive Hollywood event and learn what it's like to be..well, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

    Jokes from the stars are included. "It's great to be working with Matt again," Affleck said in a statement on the site. "It was a little awkward after he didn't get the Robin role, so we couldn't be more excited."

    "Yeah, that was tough, but I still have the costume from my audition, so I'm hoping I can wear it when we meet the winners," added Damon.

  • Matt and Ben attended on Thursday a one-woman play by Fanshen Cox called One Drop of Love: A Multimedia Solo Performance on Racial Identity at UCLA. Matt and Ben are producers of the play along with Chay Carter. Cox was a classmate at Cambridge Rindge and Latin. Photos of Matt, Ben and Ben's mother Chris outside the venue are at the Daily Mail.

  • An article by Matt's mother, Nancy Carlsson-Paige, on raising grounded children is at CNN.

  • A quote from Jay Leno from USA Today:

    As for treasured Tonight Show moments, the host demurs. Too many, he says, then singles out the time he screened a movie he loved and insisted the young, unknown writers come on his show.

    "When Matt (Damon) and Ben (Affleck) then won an Oscar (for 1997's Good Will Hunting), it was so fulfilling to see them grow and evolve after that," he says. "But otherwise, there are a zillion things. Everything I have, I owe to the show."

  • Matt will appear on The Graham Norton Show on 14 February with guests Hugh Bonneville and Paloma Faith. The show will be broadcast on BBC and BBC America, and it will be Matt's first appearance on the show.
