Matt Damon Hijacks Jimmy Kimmel: Hit or Miss?

Jan 25 2013, 10:07am CST | by

Matt Damon‘s “abduction” of Jimmy Kimmel and subsequent takeover of his archenemy’s late-night ABC talker reeked of being gimmicky — the latest noisy ploy to draw attention to Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s new, earlier timeslot. And yet in its execution (and in part perhaps because I sipped a Monster Energy Drink too close to bedtime), it proved to be a can’t-quite-look-away event.ROBIN WILLIAMS, MATT DAMON, JIMMY KIMMEL, ANDY GARCIA

The “evil,” cackling Damon intro was too predictable, as he revealed his bound-and-gagged captive after a montage recapped Kimmel’s ongoing joke of “bumping” the actor from 1,000-plus shows. But soon enough it became a fun exercise in “Who’s next on Matt’s Rolodex,” starting with [spoiler alert] fellow Ocean’s franchise star Andy Garcia stepping in for Guillermo and Cleto — accent and all.

After Damon used Siri to find a comedian to deliver the monologue (Robin Williams, covertly reminding folks he’s available for pilot season) and intro’d Sheryl Crow as his bandleader, guests started filling the couch — not to tout their latest project or make any semblance of small talk, but merely to blatantly tee up the next guest. (Example: Who’s an actor Nicole Kidman admires? Boom, here’s Gary Oldman!)

Damon at one point even boasted that “you couldn’t throw a rock” and not hit an A-list star. Cue “Guillermo” outside, literally throwing rocks to turn up two more guests (the latter of which was, heavy sigh, barely physically recognizable).

Throughout the rechristened Jimmy Kimmel Sucks! telecast, Damon incessantly taunted an in-the-background Kimmel about his better version of the show, while each guest shared “horror stories” from their previous visits to the show. (Amy Adams was particularly into this bit of theater; if you kept your eye on her even as others spoke, she stayed “in character” every bit of the way.)

Capping the outing, Sarah Silverman swung by to too-briefly snark about ex-boyfriend Kimmel, then Crow served up a new song of hers.

I’ve shared a few clips below, to watch for the first time or revisit. What did you think of “Jimmy Kimmel Sucks”?

Homer Simpson Takes Ice Bucket Challenge, Because We Had To See It

Aug 27 2014 9:23am CDT | Source: Huffington Post

We could imagine Homer Simpson dumping toilet water on his head for the ice bucket challenge to benefit the ALS Association in its fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease, but Matt Damon already did that one. Instead, Homer attempts the gesture with a tiny glass of water. Kinda pathetic, right? Well, leave it to Bart to make sure it becomes something far more memorable. ...
