    Re: Project Greenlight is back

    Sure - he remains good friends and was a producer on Promised Land. He just got another project (The Chair) started ahead of this one.

    Re: Matt is considering to purchase Clippers

    Linked yesterday. It was a throwaway line in an interview and he wouldn't be serious.

    New glasses

    He's got new glasses! Wire like his old transition lens ones and squarer like his black framed ones. I like 'em.

    Oh and GREAT news! His star on HW Blvd is complete. I saw a photo of it on Instagram the other day. The cement is new but they preserved his name and the emblem in the middle!! I cannot wait to go visit it, but they still have some construction fencing up around the sidewalk.

    Water.org...and glasses

    The involvment of Matt in water crisis is great and he is more and more recognized at a high level. He's a celebrity who really makes something and not only put his name on a cause.
    The second pic you posted is fantastic. Love it. I love his new glasses too, he looks pretty much younger.

    Kimmel

    Kimmel has made some comments about Matt buying into the Clippers in his opening monologue and banned Matt from the show for life. It's quite an extensive skit.

    Ben's in trouble for counting cards at a casino on a 'romantic getaway' with Jennifer. Your more accurate source of Ben news is this twitter page, which is very well informed.
