'Green Zone' star Matt Damon is disappointed in President Barack Obama; Passes on 'Bourne' torch
Daily News ^ | Saturday, February 27th 2010, 9:44 PM | Rush & Molloy

It's hard to think of a movie that'd play better in the Obama White House screening room than Matt Damon's new Iraq War thriller, "Green Zone," in which the Oscar-winner adroitly portrays a soldier fighting to expose the Bush administration's weapons of mass destruction deception. Yet for all the ammo his movie may give Democrats, Damon admits he's "disappointed" in the man who replaced George W. Bush.

Matt Damon, like so many hollyweird male leads, looks like a pussy.

BDS continues. It seems to have become a religion much like the Climate Change Cult.

Damon’s an asshat.
Wouldn’t waste my precious time on any crappy movie he’s in.

He did say one thing that was dead on. He said people who are looking to government for change need to be looking to themselves.

But is Damon willing be "Bourne" again?

"If Paul Greengrass does it and we have something to say, definitely," said Damon. (Greengrass sounded less willing: "I'm out of it. I'm going to try other things.")

Well, the Bourne trilogy was a great run while it lasted.

When will actors just make movies and stop trying to be political activists?
Just shut up and make movies!

I like how Jimmy Kimmel would invite him to the show and as soon as matt Came out, Jimmy would declare that they are out of time and end the show!

Same here. Lots of excitement and credible action. Damon comes off as ruff and tuff.
I say Matt Damon will be back....just have to pay him more money. It is his role now. You can’t have some Hollywood clown replacing him

Yes there is some anti-USA, anti-CIA agitprop in the movies

Didn’t say that during the election....he thought Obama was the savior and that we all should see him as such. Now he’s changing his tune because his left agenda is not being pushed through....

Howard Zinn’s neighbor, Damon, thinks highly of the fellow-traveler.

Almost graduated from Harvard. He won an academy award for writing a story that was turned into a movie. Not exactly a dummy.

Anyone needing a picture of Matt Damon can find one conveniently located in the dictionary next to the word ‘imbicile’.

You forgot OBOWzo, the bowing clown.

Use Spell Check more often. It helps keep you from appearing idiotic.

Yes, Damon is a pretty boy alright, and it is just another reason why we watch when he is on the screen. Damon has also proved he is complely at a loss when it comes to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. Thankfully we, his viewing public, can put him in the right box!

It seemed to me that an elite rogue faction within the CIA that considers itself above the law is the enemy, rather than the USA.

I enjoyed your movie The Departed where you got your face punched in by Leonardo Dicaprio.

I don’t think he has made a movie without some political message to it (including the Bourne trilogy).

You have to give Matt Damon credit for getting in shape for these movies and getting lots of martial arts training. Damon puts forth the effort. Yes the movie camera and good editing makes Damon look better than he is. But Damon does his part to make the fight scenes gritty and real. The hand to hand combat in the first Bourne was an eye opener because I figured Damon would be a wuss. Lets give this HollyWeird commie his due
