Matt Damon returned to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for the first time since he hijacked the show from the late host in January 2013
The new movie “The Monuments Men” release today, and Appearing with the cast, including George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Bob Balaban, on the late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday, Damon and Jimmy Kimmel resumed their longstanding “feud” when the funnyman seriously shunned the Oscar winner.
Kimmel began by forcing Matt to read a few mean tweets about himself (as he’s done in the past in his popular segment), but instead of a fan tweet, the post came from Kimmel himself, who stood in the corner and mouthed along as Damon read.
Much of the episode also featured Damon in the dressing room while the cast fielded questions from Kimmel onstage, which, naturally infuriated Matt—whose microphone was not turned on—as his costars and Kimmel hilariously mocked the “Behind the Candelabrastar.”
“Who among you knows the least about art?” Kimmel asks.
“Matt,” Cate replies as George lets out a giant laugh.
“Who is the most likely to never speak to anyone else never in the group?” Jimmy questions.
“Matt,” Clooney says.
“Who complained the most on the set?” the funnyman asks.
“Matt,” the cast says in unison, adding that he also needed the most “me time.”
“Spell it with an M, it’s Matt,” Murray says as the camera cuts to a noticeably frustrated Damon shaking his head in the dressing room (notice the Good Will Hunting poster on the wall).
“I’m starting to see your point with Matt,” Clooney admits.
Finally, Kimmel was forced to introduce an actor “who only has one Oscar” and “the least of the Monuments Men,” as Damon took the stage, although he was left standing without a chair.
And when Damon pleaded for a question from Kimmel, the host finally obliged, although he was suddenly cut off—by the fire alarm.
“It’s obviously a trick! There’s no fire,” Matt says as the audience clears out.
Two firefighters then arrived, spraying Damon’s blue sweater with fire extinguishers until he was covered in foam as the actor screams into the camera, vowing to get revenge.
