    Gus Van Sant Steps In To Helm Matt Damon’s Former Directorial Debut

    Sleeping on a story to see where it develops will get you burned. Case in point: yesterday’s story on Matt Damon walking away from his untitled directorial debut, which had been co-written by the Academy Award-winning writer (“Good Will Hunting”) and his pal John Krasinski, whom he hit it off with w...

    Matt Damon Drops Out Of Directorial Debut, But May Still Star In It

    Matt Damon has been a busy, busy man. He spent most of the fall juggling a very full calendar, stumping for two films ("Contagion" and "We Bought A Zoo") while also filming Neill Blomkamp's massive and mysterious sci-fi project "Elysium." The plan was that heading i...

    We Bought A Zoo—movie review

    If your favorite descriptive word for a movie is “edgy,” you might want to skip this one. If, however, you like heartwarming—not cloying—stories about decent people, and hope to leave the theater feeling better than you did when you walked in, 'We Bought a Zoo' will be a welcome cup of holiday cheer...

    Frances McDormand Joins John Krasinski In Matt Damon's Directorial Debut

    They are still, as far as we're aware, the best of pals, but it's hard not to see a vague sense of rivalry between Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. After all, they arrived together, the disgustingly young stars and writers of "Good Will Hunting," winning an Oscar for their trouble with ...

    Matt Damon's Loyalty To Paul Greengrass & Friction With Tony Gilroy May Prevent Another Movie For Jason Bourne

    It's pretty rare for nice guy Matt Damon to stick the knife in anyone, but when he spoke to GQ recently, his candid remarks about screenwriter, and longtime Bourne series scribe Tony Gilroy, made their way around the world. Calling Gilroy's draft for "The Bourne Ultimatum" a "career-ender" and "read...

    Mitt Romney Does Letterman's Top Ten

    David Letterman’s Top Ten List has become the place politicians go for damage control (remember Rick Perry’s Top Ten Excuses for his “I forgot” moment?), or to try so liven up a robotic image or revive a faltering campaign. The robotic and the faltering problems both apply to...

    Matt Damon Talks Bourne, Gilroy's Career-Ender and Hurt Feelings

    GQ's Amy Wallace went to the zoo with Matt Damon. But they don't talk much about Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoo." Instead they dig into the "Bourne" franchise, as Damon explains the script play-by-play on the three installments, "The Bourne Identity," "The Bourne Supremacy," and "The Bourne Ultim...

    Matt Damon & Cameron Crowe Respond To David Denby's Comments About 'We Bought A Zoo'

    New Yorker critic David Denby doesn't seem to making many friends this month. In the midst of tangling with Scott Rudin over his embargo breaking "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" review, in an email to the producer, he tried to rationalize his decision to run his article early by throwing another b...

    Youch: Matt Damon Says Tony Gilroy's 'Bourne Ultimatum' Script Was An "Unreadable Career-Ender"

    To say that Tony Gilroy has had a bumpy relationship with the Jason Bourne franchise would be an understatement. He has never been happy with what what Doug Liman did on "The Bourne Identity" (“Those works were never meant to be filmed,” he said dismissively about the Robert Lu...

    Matt Damon is Katy Perry's Homeless Friend on SNL

    Andy Samberg and Katy Perry were prancing around New York singing carols and doing other wholesomely silly holiday things when they picked up a new best friend, a homeless addict played by Matt Damon as a guy with bad teeth and an odor you could almost smell through the television. Val Kilmer ...
