All quiet
  • Without any photos, movie news or baby news, it's very quiet. There have been numerous Matt references in stories leading up to the Will & Grace finale, including actor Sean Hayes saying in USA Today that Matt's episode was one of his two favourite episodes from all seasons.

  • Many thanks to a reader in the comments section for Matt's entry on the Premiere Power List:

    26) MATT DAMON
    RANK LAST YEAR: 45.
    TITLE: Good Thrill Hunting.
    CAREER DOMESTIC BOX OFFICE: $1.6 billion.
    2005 BOX OFFICE: $78 million.
    STATUS REPORT: Egoless actor stars or supports with equal aplomb, excelling in drama, action, and comedy. Brothers Grimm had less than a fairy-tale ending at the box office, but Damon mixed well with oil in Syriana. Will close out the year with a promising pair: Martin Scorsese's Infernal Affairs adaptation, The Departed, and the Robert De Niro-directed The Good Shepherd, with Angelina Jolie. Married fiancee in a quiet, no-fuss ceremony at New York's City Hall.
    NEXT: The Bourne Ultimatum, untitled Lance Armstrong project, Ocean's 13.
    YES, IT'S TRUE: Had agreed to sport a prosthetic nose in Grimm until the producers vetoed it.

    Premiere

    Premiere is very difficult to get hold of in the UK. There used to be a UK edition, but that appears not to exist anymore!

    Re: Premiere

    And it takes about two months to reach Australia. We're just not favourably located in this regard.

    Re: Premiere

    Thats very true, there was one here in the UK.... but yeah
    'it appears not to exist anymore!' would be the words! Which is very annoying!

    Re: Power List text

    Many thanks! But they could really have found a more interesting "yes, it's true" section. One year they used a common fact and another year something that was completly untrue. Great to see him at 26!

    I was just watching a show about the season finale of Will and Grace and Debra Messing said something about her kiss with Matt. She said something like, "Kissing Matt Damon was fun, but not for the reason you think. Matt Damon is shy. I went to kiss his lips and he turned his mouth away." She was sort of laughing about it :)
