Matt Damon’s Abs Double

Yeah sure plenty of Hollywood stars have ass doubles or breast doubles or whatever.  But do they have an abs double, like Matt Damon did in True Grit? My guess is probably not.

Of course, Damon’s abs never actually appear in the flick, but the story is still pretty entertaining, as only the Coen Brothers could make it.

One funny note: when the end credits were rolling, I noticed a job described as “Mr. Damon’s abs double” — even though Mr. Damon’s abs are never seen in the film — that was attributed to one “Buster Coen.” Towards the end of the evening, I asked Damon what that was all about, and he laughingly told me that Ethan’s 15-year-old son Buster had served as an assistant to the script supervisor on the set during the making of the film, but had indicated that he wanted a more important-sounding credit than that, and had apparently requested that one!
