Matt Damon's New Roll As Zoo Keeper

Here's a reeel close look at Matt Damon as Benjamin Mee!

Matt is the star of Cameron Crowe's new film, We Bought A Zoo, based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee, this movie follows a journalist who decided to move his family to an abandoned zoo, Rosemoor Wildlife Park, after his wife dies from brain cancer.

He lives his days dealing with escaped tigers, raising endangered animals, working with an eclectic skeleton crew and readying the zoo for a reopening.

Matt told USA Today bout his character's motivation for moving his family to the zoo,

"It's kind of an act of desperation for Benjamin. He does it impulsively, but at the same time, his late wife would have celebrated this kind of adventure. It's really a love story about a guy who is still in love with his wife."

Scarlett Johansson plays Kelly Foster, who grew up with the zoo and stayed on as a caretaker.

Is that romance we smell? Oh, no it's just tiger poop.
