How Well Do You Know Matt Damon?
When Matt Damon and Ben Affleck won the Oscar for Best Screenplay, people were more than a little skeptical. Who were these two punks from Boston and what do they really have to offer? Affleck in particular was targeted as a mediocre talent. Damon had already cemented his reputation as a solid actor in numerous films, but Affleck had much more to prove. There was even concern at the time that their seeming inseparability might be an issue.
Now, twenty years later, both have established themselves as two of the biggest draws in Hollywood and Affleck has seemingly taken the mantle from Robert Redford as a solid director. Damon has connections to major action blockbusters, but also makes time to star in deeply personal projects, usually successful in both areas. If ever Boston had a success story, it was these two kids. And no one saw them coming.
Damon attended Harvard, but dropped out to take his first major film role. His talent wasn’t overlooked, and soon Steven Spielberg cast him in the titular role in Saving Private Ryan. Both Affleck and Damon have taken strong political stances, being outspoken during the war in Iraq and since in issues from Islamaphobia to fracking. Their influence has not gone unnoticed.
But whatever your politics, it’s hard to deny the raw talent Damon possesses.
