Cancer benefit event

  • Matt hosted a cancer benefit in LA recently - from the Boston Globe.

    Finally back from Jordan, where he was filming “The Martian” with director Ridley Scott, Matt Damon hosted a dinner in LA the other night to raise awareness (and money) for a new cancer immunotherapy program. Among those present was the actor’s dad, Kent, who’s been treated for multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow, as well as Mass General Hospital president Dr. Peter Slavin, Dr. David Ryan, clinical director of the Mass General Cancer Center, and Dr. Daniel Haber, director of the Mass General Cancer Center.

  • The cast has been announced for The Great Wall, which will start filming later in March.

    Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal and Willem Dafoe have been confirmed to star in Legendary’s “The Great Wall,” the company announced Wednesday.

    Notable Chinese actors Andy Lau, Jing Tian, Zhang Hanyu, Eddie Peng, Lu Han, Lin Gengxin, Zheng Kai, Chen Xuedong, Huang Xuan and Wang Junkai will make up the rest of the cast for the production, which is being positioned as the largest film ever to shoot entirely in China for global distribution.
