Some folks in the NYCFringe festival this year are doing a show called MATT AND BEN, about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and their lives changing after the script to GOOD WILL HUNTING falls out of the sky, suddenly giving them a shot at fame.

Matt and Ben do not see this as a light-hearted romp, and have chosen to sic their lawyers on the fringe production, being done in a garage for about $10 in production costs. Here's a link to the formal complaint...I like page 3, where they will be demanding 5 million dollars for each time the show is performed.

Apparently the fact that the show is performed by two women who look ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY NOTHING LIKE MATT DAMON OR BEN AFFLECK, in addition to them being female, has no impact on their contention that people may confuse this play with a factual, E! biography of the two actors.
