Damon plays Tom Ripley in the crime drama, The Talented Mr. Ripley. Tom has a very strange talent – he can assume the identity of the people he meets in his life. This talent takes him overseas to Europe where he steals the life of a spoiled, rich playboy, until the victim’s loved ones start questioning his disappearance. Co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Cate Blanchett, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. On his character:

I think at the heart of him is this tremendous loneliness, and I think that’s something that’s universal.
