Sep 25 Matt Damon Heads to Manchester by the Sea 0
Filed in: Movie News

The last time Matt Damon and director Kenneth Lonergan worked together, the result was the well-regarded Margaret, which got stuck in release limbo for years as producers and financiers argued over its future only to finally arrive to critical acclaim. They’ll be hoping for an easier time of it on their next collaboration, Manchester-By-The-Sea.

Lonergan is working from a script he wrote that finds Damon as a plumber living in Boston who returns home to the titular town when he learns his brother has died. He’s landed with the responsibility of caring for his 16 year-old nephew, but a dark family tragedy from the past comes back to haunt him.

With Ender’s Game backers OddLot Entertainment providing the cash to make the film, Lonergan has worked quickly on this one, ramping up pre-production ready to kick off shooting in a month or so. Damon will fit the role into his schedule before he heads off to work on Ridley Scott’s sci-fi drama thriller The Martian, which itself is now recruiting the rest of its cast. Last on screen in The Monuments Men, Damon will next show up as part of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which lands on November 7.

Aug 31 Damon dumps toilet water over head for ALS 0
Filed in: Charitable Causes , General News

Matt Damon has once again proved his nice-guy reputation, by taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and throwing toilet water over his head to support not one, but two issues.

Damon says he was torn after being nominated by Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel to take the challenge, which raises awareness and money for ALS, known as motor neurone disease (MND) in Australia.

In the challenge, people are asked to donate to the cause within 24 hours of being nominated, or dump a bucket of icy water over themselves as punishment.

In the case of many celebrities, it has been to do both to raise even more awareness.

The problem for Damon was that aside from California being in drought, he’s also the co-founder of water.org, a non-profit organisation that aims to bring clean water and sanitation to the developing world.

“So dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy,” he says in a video.

Hence the toilet water.

In the video, Damon begins scooping up water from one of the toilets in his home and dumping it into a nearly full bucket of icy water.

“This is truly toilet water. I’ve been collecting it form various toilets around the house,” he says, picking up the bucket and heading outside.

By using toilet water, Damon hopes to draw attention to the lack of safe water and sanitation in the developing world.

“For those of you like my wife who think this is really disgusting, keep in mind that the water in our toilets in the west is actually cleaner than the water that most people in the developing world have access to,” he says.

“So as disgusting as this may seem, hopefully it’ll highlight the fact that this is a big problem and together we can do something about it.”

Damon then threw the bucket over his head and nominated George Clooney, US muso Bono, and American football quarterback Tom Brady.

Aug 14 Matt Damon was “lucky to know” Robin Williams 0
Filed in: General News

Like much of Hollywood, Matt Damon is mourning Robin Williams, with whom he co-starred in the Academy Award-winning film, “Good Will Hunting.”

“Robin brought so much joy into my life and I will carry that joy with me forever,” Damon told Us Weekly on Tuesday. “He was such a beautiful man. I was lucky to know him and I will never, ever forget him.”

Damon’s co-star, Ben Affleck, said he was “heartbroken” in a statement via his Facebook Tuesday. “Thanks chief-for your friendship and for what you gave the world,” he said. “Robin had a ton of love in him. He personally did so much for so many people. He made matt and my dreams come true.”

Williams, Damon and Affleck all won Oscars for their work in the 1997 film. While Williams earned the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, Damon and Affleck took home Oscars for Best Original Screenplay.

Jun 2 Actor Matt Damon makes appearance at Santa Cruz Derby Girls bout 0
Filed in: Uncategorized

SANTA CRUZ >> One of Santa Cruz’s roller derby teams had a bit of star power added to their weekend home bout against its Oakland competitors.

Movie star Matt Damon and his family and friends in the bleachers at the Kaiser Permanente Arena Saturday night did not push the team to victory, but there were will still plenty of smiles to go around.

Damon was apparently rooting particularly for Boardwalk Bombshells co-captain Eileen Jacinto Hill, otherwise known as “Sharon D. Payne,” even sporting a black T-shirt depicting Hill in her Derby Girls uniform.

Harbor Hellcats’ Courtney Scallan, aka “Hellth Hazard,” was at Saturday’s bout, but said she was bleachers away from Damon and his entourage.

“I heard he said this was the best bout he’d seen so far. It was cool,” Scallan said. “I don’t know how many people recognized him. I didn’t get to see him, though, (but) I could see Sharon’s face on all of their T-shirts.”

Scallan said Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, a friend of Hill’s, flew up from southern California for the match.

This is not the first time that Damon has attended a Santa Cruz Derby Girls game, though it might be the first in Santa Cruz. Damon is also featured in a photograph with the 2011 Hellcats in their season opener against Mission City’s Brawlin’ Betties in Santa Barbara on the Derby Girls’ website (santacruzderbygirls.org).

Danny Keith, Santa Cruz Warriors’ corporate sponsorships director, was working at the arena during the Derby Girls game and paid a quick visit to welcome Damon, who seemed “amped” about the competition against the Oakland Outlaws.

“I think it’s indicative that things are changing here in Santa Cruz,” Keith said. “We’ve been having quite a few celebrity sightings here now.”

Keith said that while some in the audience were “slightly starstruck” over Damon’s presence, “for the most part everybody was pretty much leaving him alone. He was able to just kind of be a normal person.”

May 22 George Clooney has asked Matt Damon to be his best man 0
Filed in: Uncategorized

A source told The Sun newspaper: “A lot of people thought Brad was a certainty to be George’s best man as they have been such good friends for years. But he is probably even closer to Matt.

“Besides many years ago, during one drunken night together, George made a promise to Matt that he would make him his best man if he ever got married – so Matt called to claim his prize.”

However, as 50-year-old Brad worked with Matt, 43, and George on ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ and it’s sequels, it’s thought that the hunk will be there to support both of his pals.

The source added: “Brad took the news with good grace – but he did say he’d heckle Matt during his speech.”

Meanwhile, George is reportedly planning to throw his British lawyer fiancée the wedding of her dreams either at his home in Lake Como, Italy or Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, before relocating to London so that she can continue her work as a barrister at the Doughty Street Chambers.

Apr 30 Matt Damon on whether he’ll play Aquaman 0
Filed in: Movie News

Hollywood has been buzzing lately about rumors actor Matt Damon could star as Aquaman in Warner Bros.’ upcoming superhero action flick “The Justice League.”

But Damon—who won a Golden Globe for best screenplay for “Good Will Hunting,” which he co-wrote with friend and actor Ben Affleck—just laughed the idea off during a CNBC interview on Tuesday.

“Since they made Ben Batman, I’ve been showing up at his house every day dressed as Robin, but my little campaign I don’t think has gone too well so far,” joked Damon on “Closing Bell.”

Playing an amphibious superhero might not be a stretch for Damon, if only to promote Water.org, a non-profit he co-founded to provide safe drinking water and sanitation to developing countries around the world.

“If dressing up in yellow tights somehow moved the needle on this issue, I would be willing to do that,” he said. “I’ve done sillier stuff.”

Apr 30 Matt Damon and Ben Affleck bring back “Project Greenlight” 0
Filed in: General News

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are bringing back “Project Greenlight.”

The stars served as executive producers of the documentary series, which ran for two seasons in 2001 and 2003 on HBO.

Now the real-life friends are bringing it back to HBO for a new season that will chronicle the challenges facing a first-time director. The show will kick off with a digital contest, before following the documentary winner from pre-production and casting through principal photography and post-production.

“‘Project Greenlight’ was ahead of its time,” said Affleck. “Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back. A whole new generation of filmmakers has grown up sharing everything, and the next big director could be just an upload away.”

Damon added, “‘Project Greenlight’ works — careers have been launched and sustained as a direct result of this contest. Pete Jones, John Gulager, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are just a few of the PGL alums who’ve gone on to do great things in Hollywood, and Ben and I are really proud of that.”

The new season is being produced for HBO by Adaptive Studios, Affleck and Damon’s Pearl Street Films and Miramax.

Feb 23 Matt Damon And Wife Luciana Barroso Fall Out Over Downton Abbey 0
Filed in: Personal News

Matt Damon has admitted that he fell out with his wife, Luciana Barroso, because of Downton Abbey.

The actor revealed on The Graham Norton Show, which airs tonight, that he and his wife are huge fans of the show and enjoy nothing more than cuddling up together to watch the ITV drama.

But recently, things took a nasty turn when Matt got home and Luciana admitted she’d watched six episodes without him.

The star said: “My wife is an addict. It’s a problem. We were supposed to watch it together and I came to bed one night and she said, ‘I’ve just watched six of them- I’ll tell you what happened!’

“She wanted to watch the seventh and didn’t want to go back to the beginning. So she’s done the whole thing and I am on my own.”

Wow, it all goes on in Hollywood!
With these recent revelations, could Matt be hinting at wanting a role in the ITV1 period drama? Fellow Hollywood-star, George Clooney, has admitted that he’d love to be part of the show, but doesn’t think his British accent is quite up to scratch.

The actor told The Sun Newspaper: “We all love that show, it’s huge. I am too lowly for a part, I don’t think they want me.
“I can’t do the accent either. It’s all very Dick Van Dyke.”

So will these Hollywood stars be swapping the big screen for the small one? Probably not, but we’d love it if they did!

Feb 23 Matt Damon: I relax with karaoke and know all the songs to The Little Mermaid 0
Filed in: General News

Matt Damon has a surprise love for karaoke.

The Elysium actor admits that belting out tunes after a hard day’s work helps him to unwind, especially if he can get other people involved.

‘[I relax by] going to karaoke on a double date with my wife Luciana,’ says Matt, 43.

‘One time we bumped into Jeremy Renner and dragged him with us. And Renner can sing.

‘Although we didn’t care if he could sing, we just wanted to hang out with him.’

Matt – who is a father to Isabella, 7, Gia, 5, and Stella, 3, as well as being a stepdad to Luciana’s daughter Alexia, 14 – has learned some pretty girly tunes along the way.

‘I know all the songs to The Little Mermaid,’ the doting dad tells Notebook.

‘Only because I have four daughters, you understand.’
