Yep, so Matt Damon was here shooting a few scenes for his new movie The Informant. All I could really think of most of the time he was here was the famous "I'm fucking Matt Damon" song. I couldn't help but whistle it as I walked along the upper walkway right above where they were shooting the film. What was really funny was the fact that this is suppoed to be a winter scene so the props guys were out there with a snow machine trying to make snow, what they got were melted compact puddles of ice around the dead tree props. I dunno, maybe it's supposed to look that way, needless to say the blooming flowers and bright green trees in the background might give away the actual time of year.Meanwhile, George Clooney's latest film, Up in the Air, which featured several scenes from St. Louis, is opening to positive reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival.
