HBO has a video showing off 2012 shows and what’s to come in 2013, which has a quick view of Behind The Candelabra (must be like 2 seconds and must be hardly call footage, but hey, I’m taking what I can get here!). Around 00:02:07 if you want to skip.
Matt Damon talks about ‘real’ role in ‘Promised Land’
Fifteen years after writing and starring in the Oscar-winning film “Good Will Hunting,” Matt Damon is both writer and star of another movie, “Promised Land,” this time with actor John Krasinski. He chats with TODAY’s Matt Lauer about the project.

Matt Damon attended the “TimesTalk Presents An Evening With Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon & Gus Van Sant” tonight, below are pictures and the video interview.
Promise Land star Matt Damon reveals why he turned down the most recent installment of the Bourne franchise and what it was like when going through a period without work. “It was sobering. It didn’t really feel like a rough ride at the time. I did have a couple of movies that didn’t work and some of them had big enough budgets that people cared and so basically my phone just stopped ringing” said the Academy Award-winning actor.
In August, Focus Features surprised many Oscar prognosticators by setting “Promised Land” for release on Dec. 28. The decision could make the new drama a major awards player, if only because of its pedigree: Matt Damon and John Krasinski wrote the screenplay (from a story by Dave Eggers) and Gus Van Sant directs. The first film co-written by Damon and a fellow actor that Van Sant directed was “Good Will Hunting.” (The pair, along with Casey Affleck, also collaborated on “Gerry,” but you can forget about that one for now.)
For those still not convinced of “Promised Land’s” Oscar bona fides, Focus has released a new trailer for the film that manages to both highlight the human drama and timeliness of its story. Damon stars as a natural gas company salesman who tries to convince the denizens of a rural town to sell their farms for the purposes of fracking. Some agree, but not Krasinski, playing a well-meaning farmer, nor Hal Holbrook’s wizened town elder, a role that many are marking for an Oscar nomination.
Whether “Promised Land” makes a big push for Oscar is obviously to be determined, but the film — which combines elements of “Good Will Hunting,” “Michael Clayton” and “Erin Brockovich” — should certainly be an audience favorite, especially if this new trailer is any indication.
