'The One Hundred' charity event

    Boston Globe
    Oscar winners Matt Damon and Chris Cooper, “Rhoda” actress Valerie Harper, and “American Idol” champ Phillip Phillips were a few of the VIP guests at the Mass. General Cancer Center’s event Tuesday honoring 100 people or groups fighting the good fight against cancer. Damon, whose father, Kent, has been treated at MGH for multiple myeloma, has attended the annual event for a few years, while Harper, who was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer in 2009, says she’s benefited greatly from research led by Dr. Daniel Haber, director of MGH’s Cancer Center.

    Damon couldn’t conceal his disappointment that the Whitey Bulger movie he and Ben Affleck hoped to make had been preempted by “Black Mass,” the Bulger biopic that is shooting now starring Johnny Depp as the South Boston mob boss.

    “They had a script they thought was ready to go,” he said. “They kind of beat us to the punch.”

    No one is unhappier that Damon isn’t making the Bulger movie than his dad, who said he was looking forward to having his son in Boston for three months. But Whitey’s is a rich and complicated story and Damon didn’t rule out revisiting it at some point down the road.

    “They make another ‘Spider Man’ movie every five years,” he said.

    Asked if he’s inclined to follow in Affleck’s footsteps and play a superhero, Damon joked that he wanted to be Robin to Ben’s Batman.

    “I’m a pretty good swimmer. Maybe I could play Aquaman,” he said. “I’m just joking. I don’t want to play Aquaman.”

    Boston Herald
    Damon’s dad, Kent, who also was in 
attendance, is undergoing treatment at MGH Cancer Center. “I started coming for my dad,” Matt said. “It’s a really uplifting night. I leave here feeling better about the road we’re on. And as long as they keep this handsome gentleman feeling good, I’ll come. It’s fun.”

  • Photos of Matt and family in LA before the Boston trip are at the Daily Mail, Zimbio and more at the Daily Mail.

    I emailed Harvard Arts inquiring about the award ceremony from last year being posted on youtube or being made available and was told the following:
    "The event was filmed but the film is only used as an archive at this point. Our goal is to film/stream and make these events much more accessible next year."
