The two had dinner at the Italian restaurant Lattanzi in New York City on Tuesday, along with other people from SNL, to discuss the 48-year-old actor's hosting gig this Saturday. Shookus, 38, is a producer on the show, sources told E! News. She and Damon were photographed outside the eatery, marking the first time they were snapped in public.
"They were there for several hours eating and discussing the show," one source said. "Matt had some paper he brought along and he scribbled down a bunch of notes and ideas. They were both in great spirits and seemed very friendly. They were laughing a lot and Lindsay patted Matt on the shoulder a few times. She was escorting him around and waited for him as they left. They got along very well and there was no tension at all. They seemed to have a nice friendship and like they have worked together in the past. It was a good night for them."
