CHRIS MATTHEWS:  What’s his (Matt Damon’s character’s) motivation?  Why does he want to go risk his life, give up his - because the character, you are married to Angelina Jolie and you’ve got no time for her which is kind of hard to believe.
MATT DAMON:  That was actually the biggest problem I had with the script.

 

On being directed by Robert DeNiro….
MATT DAMON:  What’s it like?  That was the main reason for me to do it was the chance to work that closely with him on a movie that he was that passionate about.  It’s basically the best safety net in history as an actor is having him watch over your performance.
