    Matt at the party

    I seems that Matt grew his hair longer or he's wearing extentions for the role?

    Re: NZ media

    I don't think so. There are a couple of pictures and brief video link to this on Andy Weir's facebook page. I can't give the link on my device, but just scroll down a bit. Matt appears to be on the Hungary set of the Martian giving an interview to local media. The interviewer gives him a bottle of local wine and also one for Ridley. You can see the rover behind him.

    I can't figure out what in the heck he is wearing, though. It does look more like a costume for The Great Wall!

    As an added bonus, Weir made a mock trailer for The Martian as an April fool's prank. He's such a fun nerd.

    Paula - this brief 30 sec interview is great on Andy's Facebook page, however it's not the same interview as the one in the instagram photo in the link I posted. In the one on Andy's page, Matt is not in costume and he's on the set of The Martian. In the Instagram pic he's not on The Martian set, and he is in full Mongolian-like costume with his hair slicked back if you look at his face in the monitor. The only reason I suspect it is NZ press is cause the person who posted it states in his bio Kiwi News cameraman/editor living n working in Beijing/Asia

    Re: NZ media

    I don't know, to me the boots and jacket look to be the same. Agreed that they were not taken at exactly the same time. But in the only shot that I've seen that was definitely from the Wall set, his hair was down and totally frazzled. It's true that we can't draw too many conclusions from that one photo. You may be right. I am very curious to see what Matt will look like in the movie.

    More than anything though, I'm thrilled to get the shot of the rover on The Martian set. I had pictured it being smaller.

    Re: NZ media

    This is the video on Andy Weir's Facebook page. Matt's wearing a blue hoodie, sitting in a director chair on top of red dirt on a sound stage with a rover behind him.

    In this Instagram photo, Matt's wearing a grey jacket over a brown shirt, sitting in a folding chair, on a cement floor, with two lamps behind him.

    Are we looking at the same things? Clearly these are two different interviews.

    Re: NZ media

    Yes, they are obviously not the same interview, but to me they look like they were probably done at close to the same time. To me the jacket and shoes look the same. And his hair looks so different from the onset 'Wall' shot we saw of him earlier. Maybe I'm wrong, though. You may be completely correct. I'm so tired right now none of my opinions could hold much weight.

    But what in the heck is he promoting with these? And the rover, people! THE ROVER!!

    Seriously, you all have to read this book. Lol, I'm such a sci-fi geek. :-)
