  • Director Terry Zwigoff (Art School Confidential, Ghost World) talked to style.com about the five actors he would like to work with in the future:

    Matt Damon: "I was on the set in the jury box on The Rainmaker and you could tell in ten seconds he would be a famous actor. I watched Francis [Ford Coppola] get a number of great performances from him in the same scene and that's hard to do."

  • Thanks to Juanita for this article about Paul Greengrass and United 93 from the Washington Post.

  • From Jeffrey Wells' Hollywood Elsewhere column, in a mini-story about the new James Bond trailer, Casino Royale:

    ...At the same time I think we all recognize that Jason Bourne has overtaken James Bond as the definitive espionage-action figure of our time. Matt Damon's Bourne is cybered and fibered into the here-and-now; 007 has always been (and always will be) a throwback to the martini-sipping sexual ethos of the early to mid '60s.

  • Update: Here's an Argentinian story (in Spanish) which is reporting that Matt may play Prince Caspian in the next movie in the Narnia series.

    In my opinion im guessing Matt will not be in the Narnia movie to play Prince Caspian... and that it could be a rumour. But thats me... he could be, but im thinking no. What does anyone else think on this ?!

    I don't think it seems like something he would do. Even though I didn't see the first one, from what I read it was pretty boring. Plus, he'll have a new baby soon, wouldn't he'd want to take a break and stay home instead of adding more films to the to-do list?

    Matt to play Prince Caspian? LOL! Uh...no. Just no. I love Matt, I think he could play any character he wanted to, but if the next movie is "Prince Caspian," we'll have to go back to 1985 if he wants the part. Even if they skipped that book and did "Dawn Treader," we'd still have to time travel to the mid 90's. Seriously, Matt playing Caspian has *got* to be the most unbelievable rumour that's ever orbited Matt.

    Okay, that rumour about Matt may play in 'Prince Caspian' is too far-fetched. Though I love both Matt and the Narnia series, the combination of the two is.. Er... No, thanks, I guess... XD

    But I agree on the whole '... Bourne has overtaken Bond ...'. Totally!!
