It's clear Matt Damon's film career has been pretty incredible. From "Good Will Hunting," (which he won the Oscar for), to "The Departed" and everything in between, Matt Damon is clearly no stranger to the big screen.
Just look at him!
We've decided to round up his best roles, both big and small screen, in honor of his 45th birthday!
1.) "Good Will Hunting"
It's hard to dismiss this one. He and bestie Ben Affleck wrote the screen play and won Oscars for it. And to be in a movie with Robin Williams, you know it's going to be good.
2.) "Behind the Candelabra"
Nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe, Damon plays Scott Thorson, the love interest for Liberace (played by Michael Douglas). The HBO TV movie gives a peak behind the much talked about relationship.
3.) "30 Rock"
Damon played Carol, an airplane pilot who was Liz Lemon's love interest. The genius of "30 Rock" is enough to love his several appearances.
4.) "Will and Grace"
In a hilarious guest spot on "Will and Grace," Damon plays Owen, a member of the gay chorus line. Jack is convinced he is straight and devices a plan to "out" him. If you haven't seen it, watch the clip below. It's hilarious.
5.) "Saving Private Ryan"
In this Steven Spielberg directed war drama, Damon plays Private Ryan in this Oscar winning film.
