Matt Damon shows us his Pienaar
Although (the forever associated) Ben Affleck is much more conventinally good-looking, it is Matt Damon who manages to be the sexier of the pair by miles - maybe it's because he's so much more charismatic an actor.
Anyway, February 2010 sees the UK release of Invictus, which is essentially a Clint Eastwood-directed Golden Globe-nominated movie about how Nelson Mandela (played by Morgan Freeman) used rugby to help unite black and white South Africa and create a shared national passion, culminating in the Springbok's 1995 Rugby World Cup win.
Matt Damon plays legendary Springbok's captain François Pienaar.
Although shorter than Pienaar and the rest of the squad, Damon has ditched the weight he put on for The Informant!, trained hard and piled on the muscle - why is this never possible for we mere mortals?
Also of interest... Damon and director Paul Greengrass will return to make a fourth Jason Bourne film, planned as The Bourne Legacy. Steven Soderbergh has also confirmed that Damon will play longtime Liberace love interest, Scott Thorsen, opposite Michael Douglas [!] in an upcoming film about the camp icon.
