Matt Damon Adjusts

03.06.2009

Few actors in Hollywood inspire an audience's confidence in every role that they attack. You got your Clooneys, your Pitts, and most definitely your Damons. But that's pretty much it. These days, it's like, Ocean or bust.

Matt Damon especially, has established such a solid career, that the idea of him appearing in a genuine stinker just seems totally counterintuitive. In what feels like another surefire hit, Damon will next star in THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU, in which he'll play David Norris, a charismatic congressman on a whirlwind rise to the top of the political chain. Soon he meets a beautiful ballet dancer, only to discover that strange circumstances are keeping them apart. The discovery of a conspiracy ensues and I assume that Damon will eventually fix all that is wrong in the world.

George Nolfi, who wrote THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, will write and direct the film, meaning that Damon is in safe hands. Nolfi is also writing the next Bourne film, which no doubt gives the man added incentive not to mess this one up.

One of the most reliable

I wouldn't call Matt our MOST reliable leading man, but he's definitely one of them.

With this, Inception, and Avatar, it looks like sci-fi will get a much-needed shot in the arm. I do find it interesting that Damon and Universal are teaming up with this just as DiCaprio and WB are preparing Inception. I think these two projects have the potential to be summer 2010's best films. Not saying they will be, but they have the best shots so far.

If you have never watched the Ocean's films or the Bourne films, it's not surprising that you're not convinced by Damon. I strongly suggest you watch a few of those films and then decide. I for one believe Damon is right there with Leo as a leading man.

I agree with Matt Damon's reliability, however I'd put Leo DiCaprio as the top dog in such a category.

This movie looks cool.

Goodwill Hunting/ I thought his performance as well as the movie was great. People tend to focus on looks more than talent these days...so t seems to me.

Daniel Day Lewis?

Sure, he only does 1 movie every 2-3 years, but still, name a DDL movie that sucks!

This film is based on a Philip K. Dick short story

How could you forget to mention that?! I mean it says so right in the Variety article. For the life of me I can't figure out which story it's based off though, I've read most of his short fiction and this premise isn't ringing any bells.

Also I'd say that Christian Bale gives Matt Damon a run for his money for his "Most Reliable Leading Man" status. I mean the guy seriously knows how to pick his projects.

Really? I don't know any really good movie with Damon. But I can't stand him at all anyway.

I haven't seen any of the Ocean's films, or any of the Bournes because none of them looked very interesting. Actually the spy and heist/caper genres just don't interest me.
Anyway... I'm just not convinced by Matt Damon. He was alright in The Departed and The Good Shepherd (but both were by no means great performances). And have you seen The Talented Mister Ripley??? Ugh.
So Matt Damon in a political thriller? No thanks.

Clooney, Pitt & Damon?

If so, why were the Ocean flicks so self-indulgent and shitty? Just an opinion of course^^

Individually I like Pitt and Damon. Clooney on the other hand... I haven't felt the need to pay for one of his movies since Three Kings, and that was way back...

Damon is definitely someone that once I know they are in a movie I want to see it. Doesn't matter what it is or what its about. Damon = Must see. Yep, Its safe to say I have a man crush on Matt Damon.
