    Ask Why Not: Matt Damon to Play RFK?

    Matt Damon is coming for Camelot.

    In a rather inspired piece of casting news, the Oscar-winning Hollywood royal is thisclose to starring as the nearest thing we've got to American royalty: a Kennedy. Specifically, Robert F. Kennedy.

    While it's not yet a done deal, Damon is attached to play the assassinated presidential candidate in the biopic, which will be adapted from Evan Thomas' decade-old tome, Robert Kennedy: His Life.

    Damon's ultimate decision will hinge on the final script, which has yet to be written. (Once it is, it'll be the second Bobby-centric flick in the past few years.)

    Well, he's already got the accent down. Not to mention the politics.
