Ok, isn't Christian Bale the one playing Dicky? Not Matt Damon like this article is reporting? Because I'm pretty sure every other article I've read on here has same the same for quite some time now.
(I know Damon was suppose to play Dicky but pulled out.)

I THOUGHT CHRISTAIN BALE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYING EKLUND TOO. ACTUALLY I THINK THAT MATT DAMON IS A MUCH BETTER CHOICE AS HE IS A BETTER ACTOR AND FROM MASSACHUSETTS

I think this story is recycled from a few years ago and they didn't edit christian bales name in.
It was originally damon, then brad pitt, now christian bale.

way to be on top of things editors.
