Matt Damon News Column
Producer roundtable
  • Matt participated in the Hollywood Reporter's annual producers roundtable - a summary of the interview is here, with video highlights here:

  • More Manchester by the sea press: a Kenneth Lonergan interview in the LA Times and a Casey Affleck interview in the New York Times.

    But this is exactly how Mr. Affleck insists he wants it. “I have no desire to be famous at all,” he wrote by email after our chat. Given his comparably less lustrous career, this might be a defensive crouch. But Mr. Damon, one of the producers of “Manchester by the Sea,” said that Mr. Affleck had long coveted privacy, especially after witnessing the relentless scrutiny aimed at Ben.

    "He’s leery about putting himself out there too much, and he also saw what his brother and I were going through 20 years ago,” Mr. Damon said. “He’s also somebody who’s somewhat humble and doesn’t like to talk about himself that much or as much as other actors do.”

    This aversion to publicity has complicated Mr. Affleck’s career. He has lost jobs that directors wanted him for, he said, because the business-side people felt he lacked enough exposure. He is also exceedingly picky about roles. Mr. Damon said he has spent hours on the phone as Mr. Affleck obsessed about whether to take a part. Whatever side Mr. Damon took, he said, Mr. Affleck would argue. “He always errs on the side of the caution until he runs out of money and takes whatever he has to take,” Mr. Damon said. "He agonizes over these decisions because he’s got a lot of integrity. Way more than either his brother or me."

    Re: Photoshoot : Hollywood reporter

    I've seen a few solo ones, probably on Twitter. Not very interesting though.

    This article theorizes Matt and Ben as presenters, but why not hosts? They'd be fabulous! Just leave the singing to somebody else. Please. :)

    RE: Oscars

    Ben has been a nervous wreck in interviews with live audiences over the past year - hands literally shaking at times - so I don't see him volunteering.

    Downsizing gets an extremely awards friendly release date of Dec 22, 2017! Woo-hoo! Another Oscar nom for Matt, perhaps?

    Re: Downsizing

    The predicted date for release was Christmas Day, so it has only marginally been adjusted. Still good news.

    At 1:07 isn't that Matt's nephew? It would explain why he was at the premiere with him.

    Yeah, that's Jackson (Kyles oldest son).
    I'm wondering if he's following in his uncles footsteps, I know that Matt stated in an interview earlier this year (july) that Alexia is interested in working in film (not acting) but matt didn't elaborate too much on it, but it looks to me that Jackson and Alexia are interested in working in film.

    Or maybe Jackson just wanted to be an extra. I've seen Kyle, kent and nancy in a couple of matts films!
