Before They Were Stars: Matt Damon in “Rising Son”

As we continue our “Before They Were Stars” features on this year’s Academy Award nominations, we have finally arrived on Matt Damon, who has procured his third career acting nomination for his role in The Martian. After starting out his career with a few minuscule bit parts, Damon’s first major role was in a 1990 TNT movie called Rising Son. In the film, Brian Dennehy plays a guy who goes off the deep end after losing his job and Damon technically plays the role of his “rising son”.
