After getting a glimpse of Matt Damon with more cushin' for the pushin', we now get to see him putting things in his mouth and baring his chest through a sexy Hawaiian shirt. Yes, the above is another picture of Damon as Mark Whitacre in The Informant. The Bad and Ugly has thrown up a handful of stills for Steven Soderbergh's film, from Damon putting what looks like some sort of dental add-on into his mouth, to showing off his expanding waistline in orange shorts and a loud, tacky shirt.
Whitacre seems happy with the casting. He told the Herald & Review: "It's like I was two people. I assume that's why they chose Matt Damon for the movie, because he plays those roles that have such psychological intensity. In the Bourne movies, he doesn't even know who he is." (The pic attached to that piece also makes it more obvious why Damon was chosen.) Matt has definitely morphed himself to play the famous FBI informant, and I wonder: will the morphing Oscar mojo work for him as it did for actresses like Charlize Theron?
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, The Informant hits theaters on March 27, 2009.
