Waltz joins Downsizing
  • Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of Downsizing - from Variety:

    Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau are on board to join Matt Damon and Reese Witherspoon in Alexander Payne’s dramedy “Downsizing.”

    Payne is co-writing with Jim Taylor, with Paramount to distribute.

    “Downsizing” tells the story of an Omaha man who joins the throngs of people undergoing a new process that reduces people to a tiny fraction of their size before moving to one of the many communities of small people that are sprouting up around the world.

  • A photo of Matt at a shoot this week, probably for Omaze, is at Eric Jaffe's Instagram.

    Matt in London?

    A game store in London posted this on their Twitter, not sure why he is in London.

    Another one from London? Looks like the same store? Wonder if it has something to do with Bourne.

    Christoph Waltz

    I'm with you, Felicity, on the Waltz announcement. Almost never has an actor worn out his welcome more quickly. With, me, anyway. Too OTT.

    Wisconsin?

    Rumor from a local paper that Matt is buying a house in Madison, Wisconsin.

    http://www.oreillypost.com/madison/matt-damon-buying-lake-home-in-madison-wisconsin/

    Early April Fool's joke? Has Matt ever been there?

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Interesting. And sounds like truth, as they even contacted his publicist.But why exactly there?

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Matt and family have been in Montana for Christmas in recent years, but I can't recall a public sighting ever in Wisconsin.
    From: iri_na_00 Date: March 16th, 2016 10:16 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Maybe he was there because he was acting in some movie?
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: March 16th, 2016 08:15 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Wisconsin?

    There's a similar article claiming Matt is moving to Omaha. All likely to be false.
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: March 17th, 2016 02:51 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Wisconsin?

    The Omaha rumor is false (of course):

    TomBecka ‏@TomBecka Omaha, NE

    If you've seen the story about Matt Damon moving to Omaha we called his managers today to confirm and they said he's not.

    From: iri_na_00 Date: March 17th, 2016 06:59 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Wisconsin?

    But about Wisconsin managers do not deny. So it is true?

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Nobody may have checked yet to confirm. Sounds like a new machine-generated fake article program.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: March 17th, 2016 05:34 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Yes, there are similar articles with exact same photos and nearly same text about Wisconsin and Omaha. People confuse shooting in Omaha and moving in Omaha!!

    Re: Wisconsin?

    And now a story about Matt moving to Lubbock, Texas. Also denied.

    Re: Wisconsin?

    This family seems to live such a busy, traveling life. I can not image ending up in Wisconsin, as it is too far out of the circle of friends and work. This is a great site for pictures and esp Lucy and her dresses. She looks great but kinda thin. Never heard her speak.

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Thanks. I have only ever heard Lucy speak once - on the red carpet at the Oscars when Matt was nominated for Invictus.

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Was it an interview, or did it happen accidentally? Is it possible to find this video on YouTube?

    Recent video. If you watch and listen carefully you can hear her for a second.

    Re: Wisconsin?

    Thank you. It is a pity that in Instagram such short videos )

    RE: Re: Wisconsin?

    You're welcome, i just happened to remember stumbling across that video around the time of the golden globes!
    It is annoying that videos cant be longer.
    His wife really stays out of the limelight which is a very good thing, i dont blame her.
    There are times though that i wish she could atleast give one interview... it would be interesting!

    Ben mentions that Matt is still finishing Bourne in London. Looks like he'll attend the BvS premiere
