SAN FRANCISCO Matt Damon is honored that the most recent celebrity of the presidential campaign "Joe the Plumber" dropped his name in an interview.
"That was a surprise. I hadn't heard that Joe the Plumber dropped my name," Damon said. "I'm honored to be in the little passion play, to be an extra."
The plumber, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, became an overnight media sensation after he was referred to constantly in the final presidential debate. When the press arrived at his Ohio home, Wurzelbacher, a Republican, said he hoped he wouldn't make a fool of himself with all the attention, "I don't have a lot of pull. It's not like I'm Matt Damon."

“I Am Joe” (featuring homemade videos by ordinary folks)
“I’m honored to be in the little passion play, to be an extra.”
What the hell is that supposed the mean?
Joe the Plumber probably works hard in the real world,
Matt Damons gets paid millions for playing pretend.
Damon is an Obama shoeshine boy.
I wondered that, too. I’m familiar with the term passion play, but I don’t get how it fits in here.
Didn’t Damon say having Palin as President was like a bad Disney movie?
Having Joe Biden could incite a nuclear holocaust by proxy...
I’ll go with Sarah...thanks.
i used to like Matt Damon....I will never go to another movie of his...he is a small minded man.
It came across to me as condescending.
I couldn’t stand any of his movies now..I wished that he actually died in Saving Private Ryan and let Vin Diesel live.
Vin Diesel rules!
Typical AP smear. IF they had included his full name, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, their little juvenile squeel would not have worked.
Wake up when the AP reports:
“The senator, whose real name is Barack HUSSEIN Obama”..
HA! No one needs that much sleep!
> Vin Diesel rules!
Damn straight! Now who would you BELIEVE is an action hero?
Vin Diesel or the pu**y Matt Damon? Seriously...
His daddy may have named him Junior but when his mom remarried (because her marriage to Obama was a fraud, the man was a bigamist), he became Barack Hussein Soreto.
Arrogant little crap. I hope to one day be so rich that I can buy and sell punks like Matt.
