Damon Doc Going Forward

damon_mattMatt Damon’s character name-checked the historian Howard Zinn years ago in “Good Will Hunting.” Now “The People Speak,” a TV documentary project of Zinn, Damon, and Chris Moore, has found a home. The long-gestating doc, an adaptation of the Zinn book “A People’s History of the United States,” weaves together archival footage and interviews with dramatic readings by Damon, Josh Brolin (also an exec producer), Don Cheadle, Viggo Mortensen, Bruce Springsteen, Marisa Tomei, and Eddie Vedder, among others.
