The Martian, various

  • Jon Hamm talked about how he was in contention for Matt's role in The Martian at The Telegraph:

    “There are a lot of things I wanted which have gone to other people.” For example? “Ridley Scott’s new film The Martian. It should be amazing, it’s a beautiful script and I was like, 'I’d like to do that’. They were like, '…it’s not for you’. It’s going to be Matt Damon.”

    Global fame does not appeal to Hamm. He claims the recognition he’s experienced pales in comparison to the pressure faced by heavyweight film stars. “I’ve seen it. I know Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio. I wouldn’t trade my life for theirs. It’s horrible. You can’t go anywhere; you can’t do anything. Matt’s actually got the right balance and George has a pretty good life too,” he laughs. “Don’t get me wrong. I’m just saying that they have this double-edged sword that you really can’t control.”

  • There will be a promotion for at the Hollywood Film Festival.

  • is also partnering on a Project Greenlight promotion.
