Matt Damon is an A-list actor for a reason. Not only has he shown surprisingly longevity, but he also has tremendous range. He’s as dependable as they come, and while he’s has had his fair share of flops, he’s weathered the misfires to find success time and again in a variety of genres. He’s shown himself equally adept at drama, comedy, and action, and always seems willing to challenge himself. There’s no typical “Matt Damon character”, and he has a chameleon-like tendency to disappear into roles even though he’s unmistakably a movie star.
It was tough to narrow this down to his top five performances, but I feel like these roles show off his talent and range the best.
