Deadline is reporting that Matt Damon is in talks to join George Clooney’s art historians vs. Nazis movie, The Monuments Men. Damon is just another A-lister added to the cast’s pile of A-listers, which includes: Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, and John Goodman. Frankly, we'd probably just as easily pay to see these actors simply lay in a pile for 90 minutes without all the trouble of coming up with a plot and renting frames and Nazi uniforms.
