Matt Damon on Liberace and how to destroy Clooney

When I had the chance to chat with Matt Damon about his hilarious performance in The Informant! (out this Friday), I couldn’t resist asking him two burning questions: 1) Is he really going to play Liberace’s boyfriend opposite Michael Douglas in an upcoming biopic? And 2) how does he intend to slay his pal and Best Actor competitor George Clooney during the Oscar season? Hear about all his evil plans below. And follow me on Twitter (@davekarger) for instant Oscar updates.

    I’ll admit it…I have a man crush on both Damon and Clooney. Damon is hysterical and I can not wait to see The Informant. Looks brilliant in all the trailers.

    These guys are so self-involved and tiresome at this point.

      Self involved ? It’s an interview, he is being asked questions about himself.

    I feel like it’s impossible to not like Matt Damon. Unless your name is Jack, of course. I am going to die waiting for Up in the Air and The Informant to come out. Oh wait, too bad 90% of all good movies are rated R and I am in the 1% of 15 year olds who know what a good movie is.

    I am glad that homosexuality is becoming more prevalent in movies. Milk was the best movie of last year, but I worry that the gay-ness of it kept it from its deserved Best Picture win. Also, Humpday was brilliant. So. Glad to hear about the Liberace movie.

    Matt Damon is not only a great actor, he is a humble humanitarian, helping people in 3rd world countries. Also, love his sense of humor.

    Is it true that he gained a bunch of weight for this film? I can’t quite tell from the clip they showed… although he does a great job of looking like the quintessential business employee :)

    How to go from Gordon to Glitter Man !!!

    Michael Douglas IS Liberace !!!
    Hugh Jackman as the very young Liberace ?
    Robin Williams as Seymour Heller, Liberace’s manager ?
    Kathy Bates as Frances, Liberace’s mother ?
    Kirk Douglas as Salvatore, Liberace’s father ?
    Gary Sinise as George, Liberace’s brother ?
    Sally Field as Dora George’s wife ?
    Kurt Russell as Elvis Presley ?
    Matt Damon IS Scott (beam me up Scotty) Thorson !!!

    Imagine by Dreamlit Night…..
    A shirtless mattadore / Scott,
    …..poolside by moonlight,
    Twirling a red silk shirt,
    around his motorcycle helmet-for-bull,
    doing a mock ballet to…
    Liberace playing Malaguena !!!
