MATT DAMON (Jason Bourne) is one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents. Audiences will soon see Damon starring again as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Supremacy, the second installment in the series from Universal Pictures, following The Bourne Identity. The film opens nationwide July 23, 2004.

Later this year Damon will re-team with George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts for director Steven Soderbergh in Ocean's Twelve, the follow-up to the highly successful Ocean's Eleven. The film is scheduled for release from Warner Bros. in December 2004. Next year Damon will star with Heath Ledger in The Brothers Grimm for director Terry Gilliam and Dimension Films.

The talented and versatile actor will also star in the geopolitical thriller Syriana for director Stephen Gaghan. The film, which will be produced by Section Eight Films for Warner Bros., will start filming this fall.

Last year Damon starred in Gerry, with Casey Affleck for director Gus Van Sant; and opposite Greg Kinnear in the Farrelly brothers' comedy Stuck On You. In 2000, audiences saw Damon star in The Legend of Bagger Vance, for director Robert Redford, and in the film version of the Cormac McCarthy book All the Pretty Horses, for director Billy Bob Thornton.

In 1999, Damon starred in Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. That same year he rejoined Chasing Amy director Kevin Smith and pal Ben Affleck in Dogma, a film about a pair of outcast angels.

In 1998, he won an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay with longtime friend Ben Affleck for the critically-acclaimed drama Good Will Hunting, a coming-of-age story about a young mathematical genius who, due to his upbringing in inner-city Boston, can't live up to his potential. Damon also earned an Academy Award® nomination for Best Actor for his work in the title role. In addition, both he and Affleck received a Golden Globe for their screenplay, and Damon also garnered a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. The film, directed by Gus Van Sant, received seven additional Oscar® nominations, including one for Best Picture and a win for Robin Williams for Best Supporting Actor.

In the same year, Damon starred in the title role of the World War II drama Saving Private Ryan, for Academy Award®-winning director Steven Spielberg, and in John Dahl's Rounders, about a reformed gambler who is drawn back into New York's underground poker world to help a recently paroled friend pay off loan sharks.

The versatile young actor made his feature film debut in 1988 in a small role in the critically well-received Mystic Pizza. He went on to play Brian Dennehy's medical school dropout in the TV movie Rising Son (TNT, 1990) and gained further attention when he returned to the big screen as a fascist preppy in School Ties (1992).

Set in turn of the century Texas, Damon portrayed a forward thinking and mechanically inclined young man who leaves his family behind to follow his heart and pursue his passion for automobiles.
