Video: Actor Damon wants to hear Cheney 'under oath'

Actor Matt Damon, starring in new movie The Good Shepherd about the early days of the CIA, appeared today with co-star Robert De Niro on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews. Damon, who has been vocal of late regarding politics, spoke frankly with Matthews.

Talking live before a live audience of college students, De Niro discussed the production of the movie before Matthews and Damon touched on present day affairs involving the Bush administration.

"Look at the war we're in right now, you can certainly argue that that's a PR battle," said Damon, to sustained applause. He knocked the administration's changing rationale for the war, before saying of Dick Cheney's assertions regarding weapons of mass destruction, "I'd like to see him under oath." Matthews replied, as the crowd cheered Damon, "I would too."
