  • Matt's ranked third on this year's rankings of the best celebrity autograph signers - here. I think he was ranked second last year (George Clooney's prominent year has cost him one place).

  • There will be a second season of Project Greenlight in Australia - details here, including:

    Movie Extra today announced the launch of Project Greenlight Series 2, the television series that sees emerging filmmakers compete for a $1million dollar production budget.

    The series, which is part of the Ben Affleck and Matt Damon 'unearthing movie-making talent' franchise, will take a radical departure from the last series. Each episode the contestants will be asked to prove their 'movie-making' prowess by making short films — under tight deadlines and the pressure of being judged against their peers. At the same time they will continue to work on their feature film scripts.

    The programme follows on from the success of Series 1 where writer/director Morgan O’Neill won the coveted $1 million to finance a dream — his feature film 'Solo'.

    Starring Colin Friels and Vince Colosimo, Solo's world premiere will be held on June 10th at the Sydney Film Festival. The movie will then be screened Australia wide through Dendy Cinemas from July 6th.

    I can vouch for the fact that he's a great autograph signer ... the business card he signed for me is framed and on my desk! :)

    PS - as you can see, none of them are anything flash - just some of my favourite pictures.

    That's what I prefer! Nothing too over-designed or pretentious. Thanks! :)

    Is PGL reeeallly back??

    So, I'm still confused. Has PGL been taken off its "respirator" as Matty put in? Did it die and get reincarnated? Bottom line question is: will Matt, Ben, and Chris still have a hand in the show (and hopefully appear in a couple eps, though I could care less about Chris sharing the screen with them)? Maybe I missed something in that article, or perhaps the word "Australian" threw me off. This new "series" is in our boys' hands, isn't it? If anyone knows anymore about this, please let me know. I've been hoping PGL would come back, and I'll be so disappointed if it doesn't.

    Re: Is PGL reeeallly back??

    This news only relates to a second series of PGL in Australia. The first one was a pretty separate concept to PGL in the US, and used the name, but had no on-set involvement from Matt, Ben or Chris (as I understand).

    The series was a success and there will be a second series in Australia, based on a slightly different concept. But this news means nothing to the future of the series in the US (only shows that it can work overseas).

    Oh, :( that's too bad. Thanks very much for clearing it up for me, though.

    Re: Icons

    But this one's Gretchen Mol (a still from Rounders which I'm not sure is in the final film).

    I love the one of him kissing his wife.
