Well geez after the Kimmel and (darn forget the name of his girlfriend) and the two videos that have been the most downloaded things lately. It would probably be a hoot to work with Matt Damon - he and Ben are apparently quite the practical jokers. It would not surprise me one bit if Matt said that!

Oh gosh no - not a Lt - that would be absurd - I mean Jason ages well but not that well!!!

Hilary, it was almost like he read your comment about his rank. Is it weird? You are so right though!

Here, I've just re-watched that interview on YouTube, and I misquoted Mr. Isaacs--according to him, their BHD tats read "Get me the fuck out of Mogadishu".

Perhaps Morocco is lovely . . . :uhoh

Maybe they will be using London sound stages for inside scenes. It might be easier then finding appropriate locations in Morocco.

I'm also not too keen on Matt Damon but then I haven't seen any of his movies lately. Next to Mr Jason he looks really young and boyish.

according to Variety, the last remaining lead role has been filled:

OK, this is gonna sound strange, but I saw a video, can't remember how I found it, someone took a video of a car being blown
up, and they said it was for this movie...the photographer was way up high so the video wasn't that great...and it was in London, in a residential
area...

there is nothing official to say this video has to do with the movie..
someone's assumption....interesting anyway...

Thanks for your contributions, pbs!
It's good to see this one getting some coverage. I have to say though that poor Matt Damon's prep doesn't look a bean on what the guys who did Black Hawk Down did--but that was a whole different budget and schedule, I guess . . .

Guess Jason forgot to pull his punches.

ISSACS: 'DAMON GRACIOUS IN DEFEAT'
Hollywood actor JASON ISSACS loved working with MATT DAMON on new movie GREEN ZONE - especially during their fight scenes. The 44-year-old admits he took great pleasure in covering the Bourne Ultimatum star in bruise on the set of director Paul Greengrass' new film. He says, "Matt Damon is one of the loveliest men I ever hope to work with; he's very generous and up for improvising. "I bruised and battered him in a fight scene. He went home very gracious about it."
