Boston guys Matt Damon and John Krasinski are showing their new drama, “Promised Land,” to all the right people before awards season. In just under two weeks, the friends, who are the screenwriters and stars of the film, have shown the fracking-centered feature to Variety, an audience with the Screen Actors Guild, at big premieres in New York and Los Angeles, and on Tuesday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. They were joined for the LACMA event by their director, Gus Van Sant, who also directed Damon in the 15-year-old Boston classic, “Good Will Hunting.” . . . Speaking of “Good Will,” Damon recently admitted on Vulture that he was responsible for (and regrets) his hairstyle in the Oscar-winning movie. Damon tells the culture blog: “That is so my fault. For whatever weird reason at that age, I loved that haircut. Gus was like, ‘Really?’ Ben was like, ‘Really?’ If you look at Ben’s hair in that movie, it’s totally acceptable by today’s standards, but no, I wanted the frosted [expletive] hair. I don’t know what my problem was. I looked like I should be singing backup for Color Me Badd.”
