Matt Damon to Star in Robert F Kennedy Biopic Film 2010-02-24 10:07:53

Matt Damon to Join the Kennedy Family

Matt Damon's acting is about to get political: he's rumored to star in a biopic about Robert Kennedy, as Bobby himself, JFK's younger brother. The subject of the young senator was recently taken on in 2006's Bobby, but this movie, based on the Evan Thomas biography Robert Kennedy: His Life, will actually focus on the man himself more than his tragic assassination.

Damon is nominated for an Oscar this year for playing another real-life figure, but portraying RFK is undoubtedly the most formidable challenge. The actor certainly has the chops, though, and I personally think he'd be fantastic as a charismatic young politician — what say you?

I love Matt Damon and I think he'd be great for that role.

Excellent photo choice, Buzz. Damon looks just like Bobby Kennedy in that picture, with his lopsided eyelids, roguish grin and enigmatic hair style. Not much a fan of Damon myself, but perfect casting choice.
