Is there anything Matt Damon can’t do? As the action hero/leading man/activist/Oscar-winning screenwriter/sitcom revelation/Internet meme finally makes the transition to serious director, we’re about to find out.
Damon spends a day at the Central Park Zoo with GQ’s Amy Wallace and reveals some details on his 2012 directorial plans: to develop a biopic with his “hetero lifemate” Ben Affleck on the infamous Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger, as well as a film featuring a script he’s written with The Office’s John Krasinski. Why, with such a résumé, would he want to direct? “The more you [act], the more you realize that in the end, the director has all the power.” He also speaks about Obama’s comments at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, walking away from the Bourne franchise, he and Sarah
Silverman break down “I’m F*cking Matt Damon,” and more.
