Matt Damon joins the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder
Matt Damon has joined the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder. The 50-year-old actor has arrived in Sydney, Australia where he will quarantine for two weeks before production begins on the Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster.
In a statement to local media, Matt said: “I’m so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months.
“Australian film crews are world-renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it.”
Damon flew to Australia with wife Luciana Barroso and children — Isabella, 14, Gia, 12, and Stella, 10 — on a private jet over the weekend.
Damon will join an all-star ensemble including Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Tessa Thompson and Dave Bautista although his part in the movie has not been disclosed.
The Ford v Ferrari star had a cameo role in the movie’s predecessor Thor: Ragnarok as an actor who plays villain Loki in an Asgardian stage play.
