He will next star in Anthony Minghella's "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and is currently shooting Billy Bob Thornton's "All The Pretty Horses."

Damon made his feature film debut in 1988 in the ensemble drama "Mystic Pizza." He went on to play Brian Dennehy's medical school dropout son in the TV movie "Rising Son" and gained further attention when he returned to the big screen as one of the Fascist preppies in "School Ties." For director Walter Hill, Damon portrayed the green second lieutenant who narrates "Geronimo: An American Legend." He also appeared in "The Good Old Boys" directed by Tommy Lee Jones for TNT. In 1996, Damon gave a riveting performance as a guilt-ridden Gulf War soldier in Ed Zwick's "Courage Under Fire."
