Matt Damon Takes Over Jimmy Kimmel Live! With A Little Help From Some Famous Friends

Matt Damon Takes Over ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ With A Little Help From Some Famous Friends

Matt Damon tasted sweet revenge last night on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

After five years of being the butt of Jimmy Kimmel’s signing off gag, “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time,” which has escalated over the years into full-on video wars — finally, Damon returned the favor.

A teaser for the payback ran on Thursday morning. Featuring Matt Damon as a twisted kidnapper who had tied up Kimmel in a chair with duct tape, the actor asked:

“Is there a new host in town and his initials are M.D. That’s right, the doctor is on.”

So, to Thursday’s show.

“Welcome to tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!,” Damon greeted the audience, while a tied up Kimmel watched silently from the back of the stage.

“Just for starters, let me ask you guys this: As an audience, is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?” the actor went on.”I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long, long time. This is like the time I lost my virginity, except this is going to last way longer than one second.”
