Thanks to thedemonhog for the following.

Damon Lindelof is the cover story for this week's issue of The Hollywood Reporter, one of the American entertainment industry's two main trade magazines.

Key points:

* He has two $200 million films coming out this summer in 'Star Trek into Darkness' and 'World War Z' starring Brad Pitt and Matthew Fox, he is making a pilot for HBO called 'The Leftovers' with Peter Berg and has another upcoming film called 'Tomorrowland' co-written by Jeff Jensen from 'Entertainment Weekly', directed by Brad Bird and starring George Clooney and Hugh Laurie
* The year that 'Lost' premiered was the most miserable in his life and he tried to quit many times
* His atheist father had just died, so much of the Jack-Christian relationship/timeline was based on his relationship with his father and Damon's feelings
* He just turned forty and his son is now six
* He enjoys following Justin Bieber on Twitter
* After 'Lost' ended, he caught up on 'The Wire', 'Friday Night Lights', 'Battlestar Galactica', 'Justified' and 'Breaking Bad'
* He did a lot of press for 'Prometheus' because Ridley Scott did not want to
* Brad Pitt was once attached to 'Prometheus', so he brought him over to 'World War Z' because it did not have an ending
* He received between $200 000 and $300 000 a week for rewriting 'World War Z'
* He got a job in writing television from his friend Julie Plec (producer of 'Dawson's Creek' and 'The Vampire Diaries')
* Damon still loves the ending of 'Lost' and stands by it
* He reads everything written about him and his work
* He would love to work on 'Star Wars', but will not because it will be too hard on him if it is not well-received and he is blamed
