Transcript for Matt Damon, Ben Affleck Team Up for Whitey Bulger Movie
Texas, speaking their minds. "Pop news", everybody, friday edition. Big news out of hollywood. Matt damon and ben affleck are teaming up again, for their first movie since he won the oscar for "goodwill hunting." Why the shaved head? Why the shaved head? For a movie role. We have a rule here, sam. No follow-up-zone. It's follow-up-free friday. It's worth his while. It was a fashion statement. This movie they're teaming up on is near and dear to their hearts because it's about whitey bulger. Remember that story? He was finally captured in 2011, after 16 years living on the lam. Look for that one coming up. Now, to a "pop news" pop-in, from oscar the globetrotting dog. We told you about this guy a few weeks ago. All right. His owner, joanne, and oscar, have traveled to 38 countries, 5 continents. It's all in an effort to raise awareness about pet adoption. Joanne rescued oscar eight years ago. They've been on their epic journey since 2009. And they made a visit around times square. We got pictures of that that I'm not showing you now because I'm hearing from the control room. We're going live to oscar on the set of "pop news." Hi, joanne. Hi, oscar. Hard to imagine this guy was found in a shelter. He's a rescue dog. Tell me about your mission. Well, first of all, he's a little jetlagged. He arrived from south africa. I adopted him. He was one day away from being euthanized. Everybody loved him so much, we decided to do something of all of his friends in shelters. Not just in south africa, but around the world. Oh, no. That's oscar on a camel. He's smart, too. We're reading "the wall street journal" together. George, you and oscar, i know, bonded. I know you have an affinity. I have three rescue dogs. We believe in your mission. What's the next stop on the journey? We're actually going to meet the first dog to base camp at katmandu. Mt. Everest. Hopefully he can make it up to the top. Do you have a baby bjorn you can carry him in? There's a really comfy chair in my office. He can take a nap right now. Can I hug him? Sure. Oscar, we love you. You're the best edition of "pop news,". We wish you the best on your nou journey. And a little paw, too. Thank you, man. Can he stay here for the rest of "pop news"? All right. Thank you, joanne. Thank you for having us. I'm not giving him up just yet. A big thank you to the state of hawaii. You've probably been there, right? Don draper took off that business suit and put on a bathing suit. There he is, with his tv wife, jessica paret. I played her for a role on "good morning america." They're on a beach in hawaii, shooting scenes for the new season of "mad men." Also spotted a beach wedding scene. And the wide isn't jessica. Unclear whether or not the character is getting married or if he's just the best man. It's a wedding mystery you'll only see on season six of "mad men," that doesn't have a premiere date. Nice tease. Sam, we need the weather.
