Almost from the onset, Matt Damon announced himself as a performer to watch, if not in his supporting turn in 1992’s “School Ties,” then certainly in his scene-stealing work opposite Denzel Washington in 1996’s “Courage Under Fire.” For nearly 30 years, Damon has proven himself adept at disappearing into a role no matter the circumstance. He commits as deeply to being the butt of the joke in “Ocean’s Twelve” as he does to carrying the drama of something like “The Good Shepherd.” Even when he comes in for just one scene, as in “No Sudden Move,” he makes a mark. So with “The Last Duel” now in theaters, what better time to look back on Damon’s best performances onscreen so far?
