    Nice for him that the fam is still there. And maybe his hair is long enough that he's pulling it into a pony but short enough there are lots of strays?

    Re: Instagram

    I think his hair looks weird because he has some hair extensions.

    I don't mind the slicked back, I don't understand the straggling wild ambiguous pieces sticking out we keep seeing in pics, and if there is a ponytail back there, let's see it already! His hair looked awful on the great wall instagrams :/ just saying

    Golf pro talks about Matt

    Here's a kind of fun interview with the guy who taught Matt how to play golf for Bagger Vance. As with pretty much everybody who's taught Matt anything for a movie, he praises his athleticism and ability to be a quick study.

    he's such a good guy. his team player attitude, and willing to get in there and learn and do it himself mentality is very admirable.

    Update on Ishmail

    Re: Update on Ishmail

    Why would Lucy's younger sister marry into such a family - I wonder if Matt still helps them out financially given how ungrateful Ish is with these bad antics in college.

    I am so glad no one cares about MY work emails! Love that Matty always comes out on top. He's the genuine article.

    a better hairday?

    just spotted this picture. The hair still looks weird, but not as weird - more ponytailish

    Re: a better hairday?

    I just can't get over it! I guess I'm just not used to seeing his hair like that! Still handsome, but that hair is still crazy to me.

    Re: a better hairday?

    Definitely ponyish. And weird. And handsome. Wonder where they are going? A visit home, or maybe just a new shooting location within China?

    Re: a better hairday?

    The hair gets stranger. Pedro Pascal just posted a photo from Hong Kong so maybe it's a mini-getaway.

    There was a special screening for Good Will Hunting at the Tribeca Film Festival with Gus, Minnie Driver and Stellan Skarsgard:

    And a Good Will Hunting tattoo:

    Footage from The Martian!!

    Apparently there was enough footage shown from The Martian to make a very positive impact at CinemaCon! Great review at Zimbio and this from LA Times!

    The crowd got to see far more of “The Martian,” Scott’s latest film about an astronaut (played by Matt Damon) stranded on Mars. Yes, that’s right -- Damon is playing yet another astronaut stuck in space, just like he did in his surprise role in “Interstellar” last year. But it looks as though Damon will really have room to shine here. He called the film “one of the best projects I’ve worked on in years” in a video message to exhibitors.

    In the film, Damon’s character is presumed dead after a storm hits Mars during a mission he and his colleagues are on. But his crewmates -- including Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena and Kate Mara -- never fully give up hope that their friend is alive.

    Indeed, Damon is hard at work up in the sky, trying to figure out a way to make contact with NASA and survive in the meantime, growing four years' worth of food on a planet “where nothing grows.” When one of his messages finally gets beamed down to Earth, he giddily exclaims, “In your face, Neil Armstrong!”

    Best assurance I could have that the humor is intact!!! Wheeeeee!!

    Re: Footage from The Martian!!

    Sorry to reply to myself but more reviews are up and I09 calls it "absolutely the stand out" from Fox and says it "looks amazing". Cinema blend also v positive. Woo hoo!

    Matt in Hong-Kong with family:
    And probably the answer to Paula's question "Where are they going?"

    This is a special message for Greg: you often said you wanted to watch" The Rising Son": maybe here is it a possibility!

    I'm very glad with the good reviews about The Martian! Can't wait to see the movie and I hope it will be a great hit for Matt (and The Great Wall also). And after watching the movie, I'll read the book!

    HEY, missed searching for Matt and Lucy :)
    I don't see anything weird with his hair, I think that the 'stray' that you see in the pic is behind on the wall and it looks like it's on his head LOL...he's always cute!
