Matt Damon gave an interview to his local Miami Herald speaking out against, among other things, Bill Kristol, torture and James Bond. Damon has done his research, having played Jason Bourne in the “Bourne” trilogy and starring in two CIA movies, “The Good Shepherd” and “Syriana.”
On Kristol and torture:
“The small talk — if that’s the right phrase — ranged from which New York Times columnist is the worst (conservative William Kristol, according to Damon: ”He’s an idiot — he wrote that we should be grateful to George Bush because he won the Iraq war. We! Won! The! War!”) to the proper place of torture in American foreign policy.
”Look, the best line about torture I’ve heard came from [retired CIA officer turned war-on-terrorism critic] Milt Beardon,” Damon says. “He said, `If a guy knows where a dirty bomb is hidden that’s going to go off in a Marriott, put me in a room with him and I’ll find out. But don’t codify that. Just let me break the law.’
He also said what he thinks of James Bond:
”They could never make a James Bond movie like any of the Bourne films,” Damon says scornfully. “Because Bond is an imperialist, misogynist sociopath who goes around bedding women and swilling martinis and killing people. He’s repulsive.”
And he explained why he missed Obama’s inauguration after campaigning on his behalf:
”Luciana and I decided we wanted to go,” he admits. ‘But when I called my contacts from the campaign, they just started laughing: `We worked on the campaign for 2 ½ years, and we’re not going. Forget it.’ But then they called me back the next day and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got two tickets for you, in the bleachers, and you’ll actually be able to see Obama take the oath. Just $25,000 apiece.’ So I’m going to watch. From my couch.”
Not only did Damon campaign and fundraise for Obama, he was one of the most outspoken celebrities against Sarah Palin, calling her “like a really bad Disney movie” and “a really terrifying possibility.”
E! Online is having a voting to see who is the best. (Guess who I voted for?)
Two superspy guys. Two huge actors. So who’s got the edge—Matt Damon’s amnesiac all-American badass or Daniel Craig’s iconic 007? I spoke to both recently and asked Damon—he’s just signed on for Bourne IV—and Quantum of Solace star Craig their thoughts on the secret-agent showdown.
Universal is moving ahead with its fourth installment of “The Bourne Identity” franchise, setting George Nolfi to write the script. Nolfi was co-writer of the third film, which was based on a story by Tony Gilroy.
Though the series is based on the Robert Ludlum novels, the new film won’t be based on a Ludlum title, but rather an original story.
Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon are attached to the new film.
Perez Hilton.com is reporting Matt signed for one more Bourne movie.

Sorry for taking so long to update the site. Well, I have a quite busy site and some new sites to look after.
Back to what matters, I have some new candids of Matt last week at an England Patriots game and in LAX Airport.
By the way, just one more thing, me and I’m sure Matt, althought I don’t know him, appreciate a lot the support you give, but basically he won’t read what you write here for him. Is that ok?
