I got a call at my apartment in New York City with a Los Angeles area code. I pick up and it was Diego Luna. I was slated to chat with him regarding Elysium, his new futuristic, politically charged project where he plays Julio, the best friend of Matt Damon’s character Max. He sounds like he is walking the streets of L.A., a deduction I make due to the fact he people keep saying hello to him. A little later the distractions stop and we commence our conversation which ranges from directing Matt Damon in the future, his terrible movies which he loves to the Americas uniting together to create one big ass country. Oh, and we tackle the most consequential question, to me at least… when the hell is he and Gael García Bernal shooting another movie?Read More

While promoting ‘The Adjustment Bureau‘ in New York, Matt Damon confessed he has begged the brilliant Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar to do a movie together. He says he’s up to the challenge of working in a Spanish language film.
“I’ve been begging Pedro Almodóvar for years to give me a job in one of his films.” Damon said of Almodovar, the Spanish director whose works include ‘Volver’ and ‘All About Your Mother’. “Some of the best directors in the world are [Hispanic], ah, Iñárritu, there’s just a ton of guys right now,” Damon explained.
Damon is factually right. Pedro Almodóvar, Guillermo Del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu, Juan José Campanella are all Spanish language directors who either have won an Oscar or have been nominated for one in the last decade.
Damon added how difficult it is for any actor to work in a different language and be successful.
“You know, I think about Penélope [Cruz] or these actresses that I’ve worked with who are acting in their second language, it’s unbelievably challenging, it’s really, really challenging, it’s a whole other thing. I’d love to work with one of those master directors in a Spanish-language film for the challenge. I feel like I can do it. Obviously as an American I wouldn’t pass as a Mexican, Puerto Rican, but no, I’d love the challenge,” he explained.
The crossover of American actors over to the Spanish side is beginning to be a wise business decision for many thespians looking for status, acclaim, and yes, attention. The question is who is the next Hollywood actor to take the leap?
