Golden Globe Moment: When Matt Damon Became “Matt Damon!”, 1998

23 years ago, before he was the lean, mean, muscled killing machine that is Jason Bourne - and a star and key power player in the industry - Matt Damon had caught our eye as a razor-thin, drug-addicted Army medic in director Edward Zwick’s Courage Under Fire. The Boston native already had entries in his filmography – a bit part in the indie hit (and Julia Roberts’ feature film debut) Mystic Pizza, some TV work and more substantial roles in School Ties and Geronimo: An American Legend.
