I guess I haven't been keeping track of Matt lately.
Last week I saw the trailer for his new movie "Stuck On You" with Greg Kinear. It's a Farrelly brothers movie, the guys who brought us "There's Something About Mary", about a pair of Siamese twins Siamese twins who leave Martha's Vineyard to make it big in Hollywood. Cher is also in the movie. It is slated to be released in December.
Also, I found the "Gerry" site. "Gerry" stars Matt and Casey Affleck. A film by Gus Van Sant. It was supposed to be released February 14, 2003. It was not released in Canada, as far as I can tell. Anyway, here a link for ThinkFilm's "Gerry" site. Click on "Gerry" when you see the image for it.

Here we are, only a month later, and the last episode of Push, Nevada will air tonight on ABC at 9/8 central after only 6 episodes. Yes, that's right the series finale. Read more at the official Push, Nevada website:

An online auction, featuring autographed goodies from Matt, to benefit the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) kicks off at on October 1st, 2002!

"Gerry" was at the Toronto Film Festival on September 8th, 2002.

The sequel to "Ocean's 11" is to begin filming in Europe in 2004.

"The Bourne Identity" was released Friday, June 14th. Matt plays Jason Bourne. I have yet to see it. "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron" has been out since May 24th(I think). Matt narrates of the film. There's a great write up on him in the "cast and crew" section of the site.

Sorry fans! I guess I'm a little late on this news!!
Matt Damon heads to London, England
Matt appears on stage in Kenneth Lonergan's "This is Our Youth" playing in London at the Garrick Theatre with Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix from the 22nd of April until the 15th of June. Matt is taking over for Hayden Christensen. Read about the play here.

"Ocean's Eleven" came out on VHS and DVD about last week sometime. I am yet to purchase it.

I saw Matt and Ben on Oprah last week talking about "Live Planet"" and "Project Greenlight". That was very exciting. Congratulations to Pete Jones on winning the chance to have his script made into a movie.The movie is called "Stolen Summer" and stars Aidan Quinn, Bonnie Hunt, Kevin Pollak, and Eddie Kaye Thomas.

"Ocean's Eleven" is still in theatres. Saw it about a month back. I really liked it. What a great cast lineup. I'm not just saying that because Matt is in the movie, honest.

"Bagger Vance" is out now, saw it. Fabulous movie, of course. "All The Pretty Horses" came out Christmas Day. I have not seen it yet.

I guess "All The Pretty Horses" did not come out on time. :o( ! "Dogma" is (however) out on video and DVD. I am waiting patiently for "The Legend Of Bagger Vance" (set for release next month) and "Titan AE"

"All The Pretty Horses" is set to be released June 2, 2000!! "Titan AE" will be out June 16, 2000. Matt plays the voice of Cale with stars like Drew Barrymore. "The Legend Of Bagger Vance" should be out soon, too, starring Matt and Will Smith.

The talented Mr. Matt Damon was fabulous in "Ripley"(I think)but I guess my opinions and those opinions of us dedicated fans were not valid enough to win him that Oscar for "Best Actor". I say keep up the good work regardless, Matt. Keep your eyes open for the next two films, "All The Pretty Horses" and "Titan AE"(voice part)

"The Talented Mr. Ripley" has been out since Christmas Day and is up for 5 Golden Globes including "Best Film"

"Dogma" is finally coming out!! Visit for the trailer and other news.

So many things are new with Matt these days! "Saving Private Ryan" has been out on video for awhile now but just yesterday I was able to purchase a copy at my local video store. Matt has two movies coming to theatre (as we all know). We have been waiting patiently for "Dogma" with Ben Affleck and Alanis Morrisette.
According to Entertainment Weekly(Aug.20/27) "Dogma" will be out in November. "The Talented Mr. Ripley" is set for release December 24th,1999.
