In his movies, Matt Damon is almost always in distress — a trope one Quora user calculated cost some $900 billion in fictional money. But in his latest challenge, it’s unlikely that even the U.S. government — fictional or otherwise — can save him: Damon is house hunting in Brooklyn.

Damon, star of the “Jason Bourne” spy series, and his wife, Luciana Barroso, scoped out the priciest home in the borough — a $40 million mansion at 3 Pierrepont Place in Brooklyn Heights, the New York Post reported. The home, built in 1857, has 15 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms and spans 17,000 square feet.

The home’s current owner, Jeff Keil — the former president of Republic New York Corp. — bought the building in 1991 for $2.3 million. The brownstone was listed last year and marketed by Corcoran’s TRData LogoTINY Vicki Negron. In July, Paula Del Nunzio was brought on to help sell the home, which is currently broken into eight separate apartments that can be converted into a single-family home.

Damon and his wife tried to enroll their children in Brooklyn Heights’ exclusive Saint Ann’s school in August but were rejected, the Post reported. Damon also tried to buy a home 535 West End Avenue in 2012, but he was outbid. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
