Affleck, Damon Fish Around
That seemingly inseparable hunky duo, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are making news again.
According to People magazine, the two Good Will Hunting collaborators designed a fiberglass cod sculpture to be auctioned off for charity, titled Good Cod Hunting. They worked with Boston artist Nicholas Doriss and the sale of the fish at a Dec. 8 auction at the Massachusetts College of Art will benefit several charities, including, the Boston Public Library Foundation and the American Cancer Society. The fish itself is painted black with a mathematical equation on one side and the answer on the other. Both stars autographed the tail. Meanwhile, The New York Times is highlighting the home page of Project Greenlight, Damon and Affleck's effort to help fledgling screenwriters. The winner will receive at least $1 million to get a film project produced. "People are always asking us, how did we do it?" Affleck, a relative rookie when he and fellow neophyte Damon made Good Will Hunting, told The Times. "So it seemed karmically appropriate to try to engineer something whereby other folks could get the kind of access we'd had." – Albawaba.com.
