Ben Affleck just nominated Matt Damon for the #IceBucketChallenge


I decided to visit the Boston Public Gardens today, to see the bench from Good Will Hunting, so I could pay my respects to one of my idols. I wasn’t alone, as crowds of young and old stood near, bound together by sadness.

Rest in peace Robin.

In the scene where Sean starts talking about his dead wife and her farting antics the lines were ad-libbed by Robin Williams, which is why Matt Damon is laughing so hard. The scene took everyone by surprise. According to Damon in the DVD commentary, this caused the cameraman to laugh so hard that the camera can be seen moving up and down slightly.


'It's not your fault.”

How did you first meet Matt Damon?

I mean, you don’t understand. I’m from Boston, so Matt and Ben are, like, the mayor. To be really honest, I was super-nervous the first day Matt and I started writing Promised Land, because it was like hallowed ground. I’ve seen that movie, no joke, 172 times. The scene where I totally cried was when Ben says, “If you’re here 50 years from now, I’m gonna kill you,” where he sort of lets him go. To me, that was way bigger than “It’s not your fault.” I’ve asked them about all these scenes like a psycho fan, and Matt said, “Yeah, that scene almost didn’t happen because Gus, in one of the rewrites, was like ‘I want Ben’s character to get crushed in a pile of bricks.’” That could have been the ending, that Chucky died! Which is crazy!
