IMO one of the most talented, likeable young leading men in recent years, what does everyone else here think of the guy?? Personally I reckon he has more charisma in his little finger than Ben Affleck has in his entire body [Mad] , not to mention being that bit better than Leo DiCaprio too, but still..

Thought he was EXCELLENT in the following;

Good Will Hunting (startling debut)
Rounders (him and Ed Norton bounced off eachother)
The Talented Mr Ripley (probably his best role)

Any other Matt Damon fans here?? [Smile]

For sure he's more likeable then Benifer....a good actor I won't disagree, I like him don't love him. I loved Good Will Hunting though he did a great job.

When you wrote (startling debut) it made me laugh at his 80's preppiness in Mystic Pizza.....I think he even had one line?...hmmmm?

I thought it was hilarious how they parodied him in "Team America World Police"

I think he did wonderful in the Talented Mr. Ripley but he hasn't made anything recently that is that good. Just not good scrips I guess.

Not a huge fan...have seen so few things of his that I can't make an informed judgment. Cannot stand Affleck.

You know what he just really doesn't do anything for me. He is "cute" like little boy cute. The pictures of him now look just like the ones that I have seen back when he was in High School. I personally don't get to excited when any new movie of his comes out. I really was impressed with Good Will Hunting though, very clever film.

JLP...that's exactly what I mean, he just doesn't seem to have 'matured' on screen to me and I am sort of well beyond 'cute little boys' as actors. One of these days I'll have to overcome my Affleck revulsion and watch "Good Will Hunting."

Damon isn't as talented as Affleck, but he's a better writer. Affleck also has a great knack for comedy, his roles in the Kevin Smith movies, and Linklater's Dazed and Confused are hilariously portrayed.

I also loved Matt and Ben shooting Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season.... "LION FACE, HA! Lemon face, oooh... Lion face, HA! Lemon face, oooh..."

I can't stand Ben Affleck..I don't even think he's good looking, so I am not sure what all the hype on him is.

I think the only thing I know Matt Damon from was Good Will Hunting, and that movie bored me so bad...I can't even remember much about it.

So, I can't say either if I like him or not..because I don't remember seeing him in anything, and all the previews of stuff he's been in haven't done anything for me either, to make me wanna see any of it.

I think Matt Damon is a great actor but he certainly doesn't schnizzle my nizzle. He must be pretty bright though as he won a scholarship to Harvard.

I quite like Ben Affleck, as a potential lover (yeah right) and actor.

I agree with Brode though, my respect increased for them about four-fold when they did Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and parodied themselves and Good Will Hunting. It was classic. I love that they can laugh at themselves

I think he's excellent as Jason Bourne in those two movies 'Identity' and 'Supremacy'.
Beacuse he doesnt really look like an action hero type,he carries the role better than if you had someone regular from the genre taking the role.

I liked him in both of the Bourne movies and Good Will Hunting. Not my fave, but definitely like him more than Bennifer Lopez. Wasn't Damon one of the ones in the Flim Actor's Guild AKA FAG in Team America???
