Matt Damon really wants to be in Neill Blomkamp's Elysium

12.20.2010

Seriously Matt Damon, we all want to be in Neill Blomkamp's ELYSIUM.

But apparently he really, really, really wants to be in it. I think he could make this happen. It shouldn't be that hard for him. This is exactly what Damon said, "I'm hopeful. I really, really, really want to do it and I want to work with Neill. I think he's a genius. I loved 'District 9.' It was one of my favorite films last year. I thought the performances were incredible. So I'm hoping that it happens."

Damon didn't give anything away about the plot either, all he threw out was this, "It's a great idea. It's 100 percent Neill, I'll put it that way. And that's about the highest kind of praise I can give it." I have no doubts in my mind that's for sure. Could he be an alien of some sort if he signs on for the flick? "I'm not going to be a 10-foot-tall blue alien... though I did have a chance to be in that movie."

That's right folks. Damon could have been in AVATAR schedule permitting, "I love Jim Cameron... My schedule didn't permit me to be a part of that one, which is too bad because I think that Jim has really lost a lot at the box office because he didn't have me," he joked."So he's probably still upset about it."

Damon is everywhere these days. I really hope Damon gets to be in the movie because the combo of everyone involved would be just perfect.

Love Damon and Blomkamp so I'm very excited for this news. I love that Damon is taking such a variety of roles these days and really branching out. After the success of bourne, he could have just played the same character over and over but he didn't. Plus, apparently, he's a really nice guy. Love him.

Btw, I agree completely with redjoe84. I've actually noticed that a lot with Bale. hen he's the only lead (Machinist, American Psycho) he excels but put any capable actor against him and he

Murphy and Neeson did better in BB, Ledger was better than him in TDK, Jackman did better in The Prestige, Zahn and Davies easily left him in their dust in Rescue Dawn, Depp was better in PE, Crowe and Foster in Yuma etc. Just something I've noticed. Na d Worthington in Terminator is another good example. I don't know why that is. I wonder if Wahlberg will outshine him in The Fighter.

I can imagine Matt wanting to play a goofy character... try to do a Sharlto Copley.

A real actor in avatar? That would have been cool.

Is it just me or is Worthington's best performance from Terminator: Salvation? The story/dialogue/ending was stupid, but he 100% stole the show from Christian Bale.

You should watch Dirty Deeds. It's an Australian movie from when before Worthington was famous. He doesn't have a ridiculous fake American accent, and he isn't trying to be a tough action hero. It's a really good movie and Worthington is actually really great in it. Unfortunately it's the only good performance in his career, in my opinion.
