Matt Damon News Column
Video, Rounders
  • The short paparazzi video mentioned previously is available at the Splash site. Here's the caption:

    Matt Damon heading back to the set of 'Margaret' and being asked by cameraman "Hey Matt, are you excited about almost becoming a father"? Damon smiles heavily and says" Yeah" and cameraman says "Sounds Good". Second part shows a family with new little girl being introduced to Matt Damon who then invites them into his trailer while on his break. ** The following NOT shown but said after leaving the trailer**The family left later saying "Congratulations" to Damon in advance about his child that he and his wife are expecting very soon.**

  • On the IMDB message board for Rounders, there's a thread on a quote from the movie, spoken by Matt: "I feel like Buckner returning to Shea", and it was suggested by one poster that Matt may have added it himself. One of the movie's co-writers, Brian Koppelman (who is also a co-writer on the new Ocean's Thirteen script), personally responded:

    "thats a great quote and i'm sure matt added it himself, he being a long time red sox fan." Um, actually, Matt, who is the best guy in the world to work with, never questioned a line, always showed up, gave his best, didn't complain about the long hours, the short schedule, anything--but he did ask us if he could avoid saying the Buckner line...too painful for a red sox guy to have to voice. But as New Yorkers, we had to insist. Brian Koppelman

    What the hell is this? What does this article mean?

    Did you see the date of the column? It's an April Fools spoof.

    Lance Armstrong film

    I suspect this article can be taken with a pinch of salt. I can't believe he made those demands? Jessica Alba? PLEASE! and Vanessa Paradis playing Sheryl Crow? I never believe anything I read in the media unless from an obvious interview with Matt (even then they can twist it!)

    Re: Lance Armstrong film

    Thanx. I always trust your comments. I was kind of shocked when I read that article. Is Matt still attached to the project? BTW as far as I remember Marshall said there wont be any Crow part in the movie.

    Always trust the comments of an anonymous person :-)

    Frank Marshall didn't say that Sheryl wouldn't be in the movie, but he did say that the movie only covers the first book, before Sheryl's time with Lance.

    I feel like an absolute idiot. I thought the reply came from you. That anonymous person sounds so much like you. Didn't see the "Anonymous" part. Didn't even see the date on the article. That is the fourth time I had been fooled. The previous 3 times by my pals.

    Did you get fooled yesterday? I am sure not. You are soooo smart. Love your site.
