New Terry Gilliam is always something to look forward to and the director has the science-fiction thriller The Zero Theorem coming our way at the end of the year. In the film, Christoph Waltz stars as Qohen Leth, a rather eccentric computer programmer who is working on a program that will attempt to find the meaning of life for his employer, only known as Management.

In fact, last October Damon revealed what his character would look like –

Why don’t we change your hairline?” So he mocked up a picture and sent me a real receding hairline, with white spiked hair.
I think they nailed it.
UPDATE: And we’ve been requested to remove the picture. So we have.
