It’s a running joke each night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. At the end of his broadcast, Kimmel always closes the show by apologizing to Matt Damon for “running out of time”. The hilarious “enmity” between Damon and Kimmel has spanned years and, in all that time, Damon has never been interviewed on Kimmel’s show.
Damon recorded a music video with Kimmel’s then-girlfriend, Sarah Silverman, the wildly successful “I’m F*cking Matt Damon.” Kimmel retaliated with a star-studded video of his own co-starring Damon’s best friend, titled “I’m F*cking Ben Affleck.” Damon has made several appearances on “JKL” in comedy pieces like “Movie: The Movie,” alongside Kimmel’s sidekick/security guard Guillermo in a promotional trailer for “The Bourne Ultimatum,” and as part of Kimmel’s nightmare in “The Handsome Men’s Club,”but has never submitted to an interview.
All of that is about to change. On Thursday, January 24 at 11:35 p.m., ET/PT, Damon will sit down as an official guest on JKL.
“May God help Damon if he dares show his stupid face,” said Kimmel.
