Matt Damon Movies

Matt Damon MoviesMatt Damon Movies, Hollywood actor Matt Damon admits movie magic was used to make it look like he faced down an enormous bear in “We Bought a Zoo,” but he is quick to note he got up close and personal with dozens of real snakes in writer-director Cameron Crowe’s first family film.

In the movie, Damon plays Benjamin Mee, a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and widower who tries to give his two children a fresh start by buying a small zoo, and then having them help fix it up and care for the animals.

Scarlett Johansson plays Kelly, the kind-hearted, knowledgeable zookeeper Ben isn’t quite ready to date, while Thomas Haden Church plays Duncan, the protective brother who attempts to persuade him not to sink all of his money into what looks like a lost cause.

Rounding out the cast are Elle Fanning, Patrick Fugit, Angus MacFadyen, John Michael Higgins and Colin Ford. The film is based on the real Mee’s memoir “We Bought a Zoo: The Amazing True Story of a Broken-Down Zoo, and the 200 Animals That Changed a Family Forever.”

Although most of the movie focuses on Ben’s relationships with his kids and the people who work at the zoo, there are plenty of funny and touching scenes in which he connects to the animals, as well.

Asked at a recent press conference in New York about a scene in which his character tries to coax a scary-looking bear home after it escapes from the zoo, Damon said: “The closest we got to the bear was the scene when Colin and I were in the car.

“And the bear did come right up to the window, but they put a little snack on the roof, so the bear didn’t really see us. He was more interested in the snack.
