Actor Matt Damon was making the rounds of the morning talks shows today to promote his new film Contagion.
He chatted with Matt Lauer about his newly shaved head, which he did for his forthcoming film Elysium.
Things didn’t stay light for very long, Lauer asked Damon if he thought that America would be prepared for a pandemic.
“I’m guardedly optimistic,” said Damon. “One takeaway for us was the scientists at the (Center for Disease Control) … they’re really a competent, capable, dedicated group of people. … I feel like there’s a great group of minds that are constantly vigilant about protecting us. So that’s the good part.”
