    Deleted scene

    This is hilarious. This is being released as a deleted scene, which I guess it must be with that Fox ID slapped on it. In honor of his birthday? Ha, ha.

    Today Show flashback

    I had never seen this video - Matt and Ben promoting GWH on the Today Show in 1997. Filmed very close to the Oprah interview:

    Garner/Affleck

    Matt is now being criticized for comments he did not make about Ben/Jen. One commenter suggested these comments came from a Matt interview in The Independent, but I can't find any source doc.

    RE: Garner/Affleck

    From what I can see this originated from a no-quotes column at OK. Just a mean spirited assertion, I think. Following the "bash Matt" theme of the month.

    Matt Quiz

    Finally got out to re-see The Martian in 2-D. Honestly I enjoyed it more the second time. I could just relax and not worry about what they would leave out. And a good crowd for a weekday afternoon. Sigh... Wonderful.

    Cute quiz in celebration of Matt's birthday. You have to match the character to the quote. I missed one!

    Bourne 5

    It looks like filming at the former Kodak site was doubling for Athens - a pay summary from an actor who worked there:

    I just watched this preamble to the movie explaining The Martian Ares mission, narrated by Neil Tyson that I'd never seen before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXCrfsBhVYg

    I'm dragging a friend to the cheap seats to see The Martian this afternoon and watching this just got me freshly excited. Can't wait! I love this freaking movie!!!!
