Dec 21 An Affleck-Damon Senate Race? 0
Filed in: General News

Nearly 15 years after the release of the blockbuster flick “Good Will Hunting,” at least one Massachusetts-based politics editor yearns for the magic Ben Affleck and Matt Damon could bring to politics.

The two, whose ties to the Boston area go way back, collaborated on the screenplay for the Hub-based “Hunting,” which garnered them Oscars for their screenwriting.

Jon Keller, politics editor for Boston’s local CBS affiliate, WBZ-TV, was recently pontificating on who will run for the seat of Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., assuming he is nominated to be secretary of State.

For  special elections, Massachusetts law is a little more relaxed than its normal election requirements. It “requires only that you be over 30, a registered voter and be able to turn in 10,000 certified signatures,” Keller said. “You don’t even have to live in Massachusetts now, as long as you move here before Election Day.”

Although he says he’s not a fan of mixing showbiz and politics, which just means he doesn’t live in D.C., he encourages Boston not to be deemed “un-hip.”

So, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Keller proposed last week that Damon run for the U.S. Senate. This week, however, he removed tongue from cheek in time to report that Affleck’s name has actually been bandied about by several politically savvy Massachusetts Democrats.

Affleck is active in Massachusetts politics, as well as national politics, after all.

But does Keller think Affleck would make a good senator?

“Well, just look at how he got those hostages out of Iran,” he told HOH, referring to Affleck’s latest movie, the get-Americans-out-of-Iran thriller “Argo.”

Fair point, Mr. Keller. Fair point.

As if to make Keller’s point, Affleck was on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, testifying on the security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo. An added bonus is that Jennifer Garner, Affleck’s wife and an actor in her own right, likes to come to D.C. as well, so the couple would certainly glam up the place.

Dec 5 Matt Damon voted for Obama, despite those first-term criticisms 0
Filed in: General News

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Matt Damon has been one of Barack Obama’s harshest critics in Hollywood, but he told TheWrap that despite his rough words for the president, he is pleased he was re-elected.

“I voted for him,” Damon said. “Absolutely, I voted for him.”

Damon, who was in New York City this week to promote his environmental drama “Promised Land,” made headlines last year when he criticized the president in interviews with Elle magazine and Piers Morgan. At the time, he faulted Obama for not pushing for more Wall Street reforms in the wake of the financial crisis.

“You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better,” Damon told an Elle interviewer in December 2011.

The actor acknowledged to TheWrap that after his frank talk, he had played a less active role in Obama’s re-election campaign. “They didn’t ask me to do any fundraisers this time,” he said, laughing.

And, he said, he has higher hopes for the coming four years, now that the president is not worried about securing re-election.

“I’m a perennial optimist,” Damon told TheWrap. “So I’m very hopeful that this second term is going be a great one and that we’re going to see who he is and he’s going to make a lot of people’s lives a lot better. That’s my true hope.”

Damon’s latest film casts a critical eye over “fracking,” a controversial drilling process used to extract natural gas that some environmentalists fear could contaminate ground water and impact air quality. The actor not only appears in the film; he co-wrote the Oscar hopeful with co-star John Krasinski. “Promised Land” opens in limited release on December 28.

Krasinski told TheWrap that he and Damon made “Promised Land” to examine the failures of the democratic process. When it came to politics, he was more critical of Washington gridlock than any one politician.

“We have a group of people in the House and the Senate who are actually willing to throw away any progress for one side or the other just to win a point for an imaginary team that none of us really belongs to,” Krasinski said. “So that’s the upsetting thing.”

One politician who both men support is Elizabeth Warren. The newly elected Democratic senator from Massachusetts has been a fierce critic of the elaborate financial concoctions that helped lead to the recession. Krasinski, Damon and Ben Affleck hosted a fundraiser for Warren at J.J. Abrams Bad Robot production studios earlier this year.

Damon said he has no regrets about voicing his political views and doubts that it prevents audiences from judging his work on its own merits.

“I don’t worry about it,” Damon told TheWrap. “I mean people know I’m a liberal guy, and I’m fine with that. I think people go to the movies that they want to go to. A Jason Bourne movie is always going to have a bigger audience than a smaller movie and there are people of every stripe who go to those.”

Dec 5 Personal Rant: Mahn? or Joat? 0
Filed in: General News

I freakin love the idea that Matt Damon has become such good friends with John Krasinski (in my imaginary world, they are a celebrity couple thus the debate above). Both are so awesome, hilarious, and oh so talented. I just see Matt raving about John everywhere these days and its the cutest thing ever. It peaked with John Krasinski saying on David Letterman (while introducing a clip of Promised Land and their potential conflict over a woman in the movie), “This is a clip of something NOT out of the ordinary  me stealing a woman away from Matt Damon”

(or something to that effect…it was just amazing).

Dec 5 Matt Damon joins George Clooney and Bill Murray in ‘Monuments Men’ 0
Filed in: Movie News

The “Bourne” star is in talks to join the cast of “Monuments Men,” a WWII drama based on Robert M. Edsel’s book of the same name that was adapted by Clooney as a starring and directing vehicle, according to Deadline. The plot centers on the efforts of a group of Allied art historians and museum personnel who are tasked with salvaging works of art and other items of cultural importance from the Nazis in Europe during the latter days of WWII.

Damon, who previously starred with Clooney in the “Ocean’s” trilogy as well as the Iraq War drama “Syriana,” is just the latest big name to board the project, which already boasts the likes of Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”) and John Goodman.

“Monuments Men” is scheduled to begin shooting in Europe this January.

Damon will next be seen in “Promised Land,” the upcoming Gus Van Sant drama that was co-written by Damon and co-star John Krasinski. That film is slated for an Oscar-qualifying run beginning December 28, before moving into wider release after the first of the year.
