Watch: Matt Damon Plays Beefy Rugby Player in Invictus


Rugby fans might want to be on the look-out for Clint Eastwood's Invictus, which tells the story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) and the captain of South Africa's rugby team Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon) became allies to help unite the nation in the run-up to the 1995 World Cup.

Here's Damon's brief Dieux du Stade moment from the trailer.

  1. Maybe not 'steroids' as one might think but he's definitely on HRT with some type of hormone doctor prescribed.

  3. A really fine movie. And Damon - and the other beefy rugby players - are easy on the eyes!

    BTW - I don't think that's a roids body. Damon is pretty beefy in the movie, but he doesn't have that lean-mean-Mario-Lopez-scary look.

  4. I imagine a shirtless mattadore/Scott poolside by moonlight, twirling a red silk shirt around his motorcycle-helmet-bull doing a mock ballet to Liberace playing Malaguena.

  5. Im so sick to death of reading clueless critiques of Liberace's music; For God's sake get it right! No, he was'nt perfect, yet considering his range, was closer to perfect musically than practically anybody! With well established classical composer's, he was exact and intact, reverently so. With light classics, jazz or pop, you name it, he did it all, and did it all better than anybody! Whether fusing different genre, or switching across to different genre; And yes, he loved to do variations on a theme, and espeially did extemporize pieces of music if only to flush out the musically lame critic's! But to all those who unconditionally love music; Liberace is the rosetta stone of music!!!
