Timothy Hutton interview
  • Actor Timothy Hutton referred to The Good Shepherd in this interview:

    Hutton has two films at this year's Sundance -- Daley as well as Off The Black with Nick Nolte. After the festival he'll return to the project he's currently shooting -- the highly anticipated The Good Shepherd, which stars Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie and is directed by Robert De Niro.

    "It's a sweeping epic. It's a story about the origins of the CIA -- from the 1920s to ... (the secret organization) Skull and Bones," Hutton reveals.

    "De Niro's an amazing director. He keeps the discussions between takes extremely private. He'll come up inches from your ear about what he just saw and the camera's still rolling because he doesn't like to call cut."

    As far as the attention surrounding the famously pregnant Jolie -- you'd probably need the CIA to keep photographers away -- Hutton says the production has "taken a lot of measures to keep that stuff away ... People show up on the set, sure, but it's not effecting us in a negative way. As I say, precautions have been taken to keep (the paparazzi) at bay."

    Bourne Music

    Does anybody know the name of the Moby track that plays over the end of the closing credits in the Bourne films?

    I really love it and would like to buy it.

    It should be called 'Extreme Ways', but I don't know if that's the official title.

    Re: Music

    The song is featured on Moby's 2002 album called 18.

    Does anybody know why at the end of the Jimmy Kimmel show every night, Jimmy says "my apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time"? What is he talking about? Does anybody know?

    Here's what a poster on IMDB had to say about the same question:

    Probably just a play on the fact that his show can rarely get A-list guests. I remember Conan used to do that alot in the old days, make jokes related to the fact that he couldn't get the same level of guests as people like Leno and Letterman. Although that wouldn't really work any more since his stock has risen as a late night host.

    Thanks for explaining that (I'm out of the US and never seen the Kimmel show).

    Somebody keeps putting in "jimmy kimmel matt damon" on a yahoo search query and I've never understood why.

    thanks for answering!

    Good call. That's exactly it. Tonight Jimmy Kimmel extended his comment to say "we didn't have time to schedule him in" or something to that effect.

    Thanks for an absolutely terrific site!! Is there any way you can adjust the site so that it comes up in a Google search? To find this site, I go to the old column, and click on the link to livejournal. Thanks very much.

    Re: Google

    I don't know why it doesn't up in the main google search (I've added it to their searchable list, but nothing changed). It does come up on the google blog search, and other blog search engines.
