    Jason Walsh

    An interview with Matt's trainer Jason Walsh:


    While you're in Vegas for the Bourne filming, what are you doing with Matt Damon?
    We still train every day, maintenance and keeping him healthy, and making sure he doesn’t get injured. So I’m here for that and I spend time on set, just because I love it and seeing this thing being made. We’re like a family. We all eat together and hang out.

    And somehow I missed these pics of Matt taken for the LA Times. They're nice :)

    Was there ever a statement released with Matt's reaction to the Oscar nomination?

    Re: Pics + Bourne

    No. Wonder if he will show up for the Oscar portrait this year - he didn't for Invictus.

    At the SAG Awards Alicia Vikander said they wrapped in Vegas that morning and were flying to London after the awards. Vegas was meant to be the end so it must be pick-up shots in London.

    Re:Jason Walsh

    Thanks for posting this interview of Jason; as a sportswoman myself, I found it very interesting and inspiring. Everytime I see pics of Matt running, he motivates me to go to run! A few days ago, I ran with The Martian's score in my ears on my iPod...it was 'pur bonheur'!

    Here is a little behind-the-scene of Bourne in Vegas; the blog of an extra. Pleasant to read her witness and to learn about the relationship between Matt and Paul:

    Re: Jason Walsh

    Thanks B. A number of people have been flaunting the 'no social media' rules in place, and she probably said too much, but it was harmless, and well-intentioned.

    Wonder how long the next stage of London filming will take, and if Matt will get to Japan before The Martian's premiere there on 5 February.

    The Martian

    The Martian won for 'Best Contemporary film' at the Art Director's Guild awards.

    Bourne still seems to be filming in Vegas, with Matt and extras involved.

    Re: Bourne

    But then Frank Marshall posts:

    BOURNE5 wraps. Thanks to the Aria & all of Las Vegas for your generous hospitality and patience.#Bourne2016 @AriaLV

    Does Matt have time to get to a premiere in Japan before it opens?

    Re: Bourne

    I thought Alicia V said they had to go back to D.C. to shoot some more after the Sunday SAG awards.

    George Clooney talks about Suburbicon:


    You’re also directing “Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, from a screenplay they wrote around the time of “Blood Simple.”
    It’s an interesting story. It takes place in the suburbs in 1947. It’s kind of a thriller. It’s kind of a comedy. It’s a very dark comedy from a young man’s point of view about all the things that are going wrong in his house.

    Why did you decide to finally make it?
    When I was doing “O Brother,” they sent it to me and asked if I was interested. It just never got legs. All the other movies came and got going. This one was commissioned, so it sat around. For the last year, I’ve been looking for something to direct. I called Bryan Lourd, my agent. I said, “How many movies have I looked at?” He said, “About 85 in the last year.” A lot of them are being made. But I just thought, it’s not in my wheelhouse or it’s not my taste. Then I remembered “Suburbicon.” I had an old script on my shelf. I called up the boys and said, “You’re not doing anything with it, are you?” They were like, “No.” So I said, “I’d like to take a crack at it.”

    New Soderbergh project

    Hate the title but like the idea of Matt with Channing and back with Soderbergh.


    Soderbergh has already posted:

    Bitchuation‏@Bitchuation That Variety story is wrong. What a shock.

    Jeff Sneider‏@TheInSneider · 11 minutes ago
    @devincf My source said Variety's story lines up with what he has heard, but he isn't directly involved. Soderbergh may simply be producing

    What happened after this running scene:(but what was he carrying in the hand?)


    Matt about Oscar's diversity: Matt at 40 sec


    A video I think wasn't posted here (Buy A Lady a Drink):

    Cheers, Matt:

    Nothing really new in this article except maybe this (is it true?) and a nice pic:

    One of the primary ways Matt Damon is fighting for the environment is by teaming up with GreenDimes.com, an organization that promotes a world in which trees are not squandered to make junk mail.
    “For an estimated dime a day they can stop 70 per cent of the junk mail that comes to your house. It’s very simple, easy to do, great gift to give, I’ve actually signed up my entire family. It was a gift given to me this past holiday season and I was so impressed that I’m now on the board of the company.”

    Downsizing may film in Norway, but most of the available film incentives could go to another film, leaving only exteriors to be shot there.

    Interesting. Thanks.
