Matt Damon and “Promised Land” – One of the Year’s Finest Films [Berkshire on Stage]

by Larry Murray

Matt Damon got an early shot at acting on the screen as an extra, playing a Red Sox fan in Field of Dreams. I haven’t gone back to see if I could pick him out in the crowd at Fenway Park, but visibility has never been a problem for the Cambridge, MA actor since Good Will Hunting. It put him on the map with an armful of awards that he and Ben Affleck shared for that film, both as actors and screenwriters.
