A Grand Island native is the big man on campus at the University of Nebraska, as his photo with a Hollywood superstar goes viral.
Matt Damon's face is known to moviegoers around the world, but on Wednesday, he needed a nametag reading "M Damon" as he clutched new student enrollment paperwork.
The Academy Award winner posed for photos on a visit to UNL Wednesday, including a shot with Cory Foland.
"Me and my bro Matt Damon. Awesome guy," Foland tweeted.
Damon wore a Husker cap on his campus visit. Foland's tweet has quickly spread, as others tried to spot the movie star.
Student Ethan Rowley tweeted, "I'm 99.99% sure I handed Matt Damon a cup at UNL's orientation this a.m."
A university spokesman told the Lincoln Journal-Star that Damon was the guest of a new student, who brought him as a mentor. They asked that Damon be treated as any other parent or mentor.
