• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Matt Damon is an American actor whose career was launched following the success of the film Good Will Hunting, from a screenplay he co-wrote with BFF Ben Affleck. The pair won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay for the work and Damon garnered multiple nominations for Best Actor for his lead performance in the same film.

Damon has gone on to star in films such as Saving Private Ryan, The Talented Mr. Ripley and the Ocean's series, but it wasn't until playing Jason Bourne that he became a bankable, legitimate star. Since then, he has gone on to other acclaimed roles such as Syriana, The Good Shepherd, and The Departed, Invictus, Hereafter, and True Grit. He also showed an aptitude for comedy when he starred in The Informant! and Stuck On You, plus his memorable cameo in Eurotrip. He was also one of the two actors in Gerry.

When he first started out acting he said that his desire was to have everyone look at him and say "Matt Damon, now there's a hard working guy." He has received multiple award nominations for his film performances and has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Damon is one of the top thirty-five highest grossing actors of all time. In 2007, he was named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. Your Mileage May Vary on how "attractive" he is, however. Even he claimed to be scratching his head over that one. Of course, it should be noted Boston guys having been getting laid a whole lot more since he's been around.

He was also one of the celebrities mocked in Team America: World Police. Matt Damon! Somewhat amusingly, he was actually supposed to be portrayed favorably in it. Then the puppet came out looking the way it did...
