Matt Damon in Malone

MALONE – Academy Award-winning screenwriter and actor Matt Damon was in Malone Wednesday, apparently learning more about wind farms.

The star of “Good Will Hunting” and “The Bourne Identity” franchise could also be gathering information for a film he is rumored to be making for his directorial debut.

The lunch crowd at Jon’s Family Restaurant on Finney Boulevard was abuzz with people getting their picture taken with Damon and actor John Krasinski, who plays Jim Halpert on the NBC sitcom “The Office.”

One of the fans who got close Wednesday was Katie Nason, who works at Giggles and Wiggles child-care center in Malone.

“It was pretty exciting. I was there with my husband, and my in-laws were arriving,” she said.

There was a lot of commotion at a table behind them, with the waitresses and restaurant staff crowding around and taking pictures with a man in a hat and glasses.

“My husband said, ‘It must be somebody famous,'” Nason said.

She said she got a look at who it was causing the excitement, “and I lost my breath. It took me 10 minutes to go over there and talk to him.

“I was like, ‘I can’t not get this.’ My mother-in-law took the picture on her iPod.

“He was very polite and just as cute in person,” Nason said. “You could tell he was used to it.”

The actors were apparently in the area to learn more about wind farms for a future movie and were accompanied by Town Council member Jack Sullivan, a vocal wind-farm opponent.

Sullivan could not be immediately reached for comment.

Damon is the co-founder of H2O Africa and Water.org, which work to improve living conditions in developing countries through clean water.

The film Damon might direct and star in is tentatively called “Father and Daughter,” according to a website entry for New York Magazine.

“I’ve got a few things that I really want to direct, and one I’m actually going to start at the first quarter of next year,” he said in the article.

He would play a criminal on the run with his daughter.

Damon would not say much about the film but did tell the magazine, “John Krasinski is in it.”
