Matt Damon in Stuck On You (2003)

MATT DAMON (Bob Tenor) starred as Jason Bourne in “The Bourne Identity” for director Doug Liman and Universal Pictures. Previously, he starred in “Ocean’s 11” with George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts for director Steven Soderbergh. Damon also recently appeared in “Gerry” with Casey Affleck, for director Gus Van Sant. “Gerry” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last January and was released in February 2003.

Currently, Damon is filming “The Brothers Grimm” for director Terry Gilliam, set for a fall 2004 release. He then begins filming “The Bourne Supremacy” and “Ocean’s 12.”

In 2000, audiences saw Damon star in “The Legend of Bagger Vance,” for director Robert Redford, and in the film version of the Cormick McCarthy book “All the Pretty Horses,” for director Billy Bob Thornton.

In 1999, Damon starred in Anthony Minghella’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” for which Damon received a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Actor. That same year he rejoined “Chasing Amy” director Kevin Smith and longtime friend Ben Affleck in “Dogma,” a film about a pair of outcast angels.

In 1998, Damon won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay with Ben Affleck for the critically-acclaimed drama “Good Will Hunting,” a coming-of-age story about a young mathematical genius who, due to his upbringing in inner-city Boston, can’t live up to his potential. Damon also earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his work in the title role. In addition, both he and Affleck received a Golden Globe Award for their screenplay, and Damon garnered a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. The film, directed by Gus Van Sant, received seven additional Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture and a win for Robin Williams for Best Supporting Actor.

In the same year, Damon starred in the title role of the World War II drama “Saving Private Ryan” for Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg, and in John Dahl’s “Rounders” about a reformed gambler who is drawn back into New York’s underground poker world to help a recently paroled friend pay off loan sharks.

In 1997, Damon made a cameo appearance in Kevin Smith’s “Chasing Amy.” That same year, he starred as an idealistic young attorney in Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Rainmaker,” based on the best-selling novel by John Grisham.

Damon first gained attention in 1996, with his vivid performance in Twentieth Century Fox’s “Courage Under Fire.” In the drama, he portrayed a guilt-ridden Persian Gulf War soldier tormented by an incident that occurred in the heat of battle.

Damon made his feature film debut in 1988 in a small role in the well-received “Mystic Pizza.” He went on to play Brian Dennehy’s medical school-dropout son in the TV movie “Rising Son” (TNT, 1990) and gained further attention when he returned to the big screen as a fascist preppy in “School Ties” (1992).

For director Walter Hill, Damon had a sizeable supporting role as the green second lieutenant, new to the West, who narrates “Geronimo: An American Legend” (1993). In 1995, he appeared in “The Good Old Boys,” directed by Tommy Lee Jones for TNT. Set in turn of the century Texas, Damon portrayed a forward thinking and mechanically inclined young man who leaves his family behind to follow his heart and pursue his passion for automobiles.

In 1998, Damon and Affleck partnered with “Good Will Hunting” associate producer Chris Moore to form Pearl Street Productions, now known as LivePlanet. The company created integrated media, a new kind of entertainment experience that combines traditional media, new media and the physical world. LivePlanet created and oversees Project Greenlight‘, where filmmaking hopefuls submit their original scripts to Affleck, Damon and Moore via an Internet competition. A 13-episode documentary series chronicling the making of an independent feature film debuted on HBO in December 2001 and the film, “Stolen Summer,” was released in March 2002.

Project Greenlight 2, “The Battle of Shaker Heights” opened in select theatres in August 2003.

Damon, who attended Harvard University, first gained acting experience at the American Repertory Theatre as well as other Boston-based theatre venues.
