Actor Matt Damon received the ALS ice bucket challenge from his best friend and acting colleague Ben Affleck. This led to fans immediately searching the globe to find out where he was and also sparked conversation about the death of Robin Williams and Matt Damon's popular Bourne films.
The actor released a statement about the huge impact that Robin Williams had and will always have on his life. For some people it is hard to believe but there was a time when Matt Damon was a struggling actor.
Robin Williams opened the doors to Hollywood success for Matt Damon when he became part of "Good Will Hunting" which led to the Weinstein Company 'green-lighting' the movie which resulted in Matt Damon and Ben Affleck earning an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.
A photo of Matt Damon was released on the Internet of him while reportedly on vacation in Colombia and in the picture he is seen boxing. For the many fans of this talented actor there is the hope/dream that he might be preparing for a return to the role of Jason Bourne that he made famous and had people calling him the James Bond of the United States.
He was the leading man in the first three films but after his last Bourne movie, "The Bourne Ultimatum", he reportedly said that he would make no more of those films and the role has been taken over by Jeremy Renner.
Matt Damon for many fans is Jason Bourne and his spectacular performance in the role is such that even several years after he was last seen in a Bourne film that is how many fans remember him.
No one knows if Matt Damon will ever return to the Bourne franchise but fans will always keep hoping and fantasizing about the prospect especially when pictures of him working out seem to find themselves all over the Internet.
