Matt Damon did a movie with Terry Gilliam once, and sadly, it… was not very good. At all. But despite all the evident problems with The Brothers Grimm, there is no bad blood between actor and director. In fact, Damon is now set to go back to work with Gilliam. And even if it’s just for a couple days, for a small role in Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem, it’s a pretty great thing.
The film stars Christoph Waltz as a computer scientist waiting for a phone call as he is preoccupied with puzzling out a theorem to determine the reason for human existence. It also features Tilda Swinton and Melanie Thierry, and today Gilliam announced via Facebook that Peter Stormare and Sanjeev Bhaskar also have roles. But until we have more idea of what they’ll be doing, let’s get to the comments from Damon about his gig.
