Casting news
  • Jeff Daniels has joined The Martian.

  • Matt is one of the actors being considered for another biopic of Steve Jobs for director Danny Boyle.

  • The Farrelly brothers have joined the judging panel for Project Greenlight. The top ten have just been announced and Matt and Ben spoke to the finalists by Skype.

  • From an interview with Ben:

    When such decisions are to be made, he relies on the counsel of his wife, actor Jennifer Garner, his brother, actor Casey Affleck, and his best mate, Matt Damon.

    There is not, he says, “a gigantic number of people you would trust to give honest feedback”. His friendship with Damon now stretches to 30 years.

    “It’s so relaxing and nice to be able to talk honestly with someone who really understands you and your whole history of life, who can offer you perspective, who you can offer perspective to,” he says of his fellow Bostonian. “You don’t have to have a guard up, or be concerned about what you’re saying in any way.”

    He adds that he and Damon have an even more bizarre synchronicity in that they both have had to live most of their adult lives very publicly.

    “There’s a rare perspective that we have. A lot of the issues that come up around trying to do this job and what it means for your personal life ... how to approach it professionally ... We have each other to bounce that off.”

    Interstellar, Steve Jobs

    Interesting rumor floating around that Matt may be going 'to the dark side' in his role in Interstellar. If true, very cool. Also read a quote (at Nolan fans) from a person who had seen an early screening saying that the audience gasped when Matt showed up, and that section was his facorite part of the film. So there you have it, an anonymous dude quoting another anonymous dude, which in the online world is equivalent to absolute fact.

    I'm kind of leery of the Jobs project.

    Re: Interstellar, Steve Jobs

    I'm also wary of the Jobs project. The Ashton Kutcher movie wasn't that bad and another movie so soon isn't a great idea.

    Hoping Interstellar is great, but also wary of expectations.

    Come To Pappa Recap

    Hey all! I attended Come To Papa Live! with Tom Papa & Friends
    Matt Damon, Alyson Hannigan, Steve Agee, Melissa Villasenor, Dave Anthony, Paul Morrissey, Erin Foley. It was a Halloween episode (presumably to air on Sirius later this month), so all the skits were Halloween themed, interspersed with the comedians doing short stand-up sets and 3 man band accompanying throughout. It was a lot of fun! I was able to arrive early and get seats in the 3rd row with some friends. It was about an hour and a half show. Papa hosted the show and brought in the various friends at different times throughout the show. Matt was in 2 of the skits and the final full cast finale. The first skit was based around the topic of a woman who is in need of an exorcism. In her head she has the voices of celebrities. The various comedians immitated celebrities such as Wanda Skyes, Alyson Hannigan herself from American Pie talking about "one time in band camp", etc. Matt came out and did the full skit in the voice of Matthew Mcconaughey doing his Lincoln Car commercial (apparently airing in the states). It was hilarious and I couldn't stop smiling. His second skit came later where he did the voice of a modern day Frankenstein alongside Steve Agee who played modern Dracula. Everything Matt said was followed by "grrrr" again hilarious. At one point though he mistakenly said "blahhh" which was house Agee was ending his remarks as Dracula. The whole thing tripped them up so much that Matt started laughing and couldn't contain himself. He and Agee struggled through the rest of the skit with Papa laughing reading his lines. At the end of the show, Melissa Villasenor (who did spot on imitations of Christina Aguilara, Wanda Sykes, and a few others) did the voice of Sarah Silverman and joked that she was f'ing Matt Damon who responded "No Sarah, that was a song we did". Describing the show is not nearly as funny as being there watching it. Papa did a whole skit based around Andy Rooney from 60minutes which had me laughing hard. Hopefully some of you will get to hear it on Sirius when it airs. When the show was over, Matt eventually walked through the courtyard outside to go into a smaller bar at the venue where Papa and the others were having some private drinks. I was able to snap some crumby photos of him in the dark outside. No photos or filming was permitted inside the venue. Since I was with friends, I didn't insist on staying to see Matt leave the venue and get in his car, so we left before he did. I did see his Tesla in the parking lot though when we left. Since I'd met in January, I didn't push up front and try to interact with him, my friend faintly shouted Happy early Birthday. He did look back but didn't know where the voice had come from. I'm sure some paparazzi photos will appear online soon, since they were waiting for him outside the venue. Matt looked very good wearing a plaid shirt, dark blue jeans, (no glasses) and was accompanied by Lucy.

    Happy Birthday Matt

    I just came across a really nice NEW photo of Matt on Sam Jone's website! Scroll down on the left-hand side you'll see a b&w photo and in plain sight you can see his tattoo as well.

    Lunch out

    A few photos of Matt out to lunch today with some of the family. I love Lucy's dress. Very simple, but the color is so flattering to her. I wonder if it's a special day of some kind for Lucy, since she has the flowers.
