Matt Damon is making his first official guest appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live"
Jimmy Kimmel has announced that good friend Matt Damon is going to be a guest on his show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, on January 24th – for real this time. The subject of Matt Damon appearing as a guest has been a long running joke on “Kimmel”, with Jimmy frequently ending his show by saying that he has run out of time and Damon would not be on the air as planned. In 2006, Kimmel led everyone to believe that Damon was actually going to sit down for an interview only to inform him as soon as he took his seat that their time was up. It was a really hilarious bit that had Damon pretty riled up.
In 2008 Damon got his revenge on Kimmel by co-starring with Kimmel’s then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman in the viral video “I’m F---ing Matt Damon” which inspired the equally hilarious response “I’m F---ing Ben Affleck” (If you haven’t seen either of these, I suggest you watch then below for some good laughs).
Well this joke is apparently going to come to an end, even though Kimmel said in a statement “May God help Damon if he dares show his stupid face.”
“Kimmel” moved to an earlier time slot this week and is now competing directly with both the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and its ratings have been up and down. The Damon interview may provide a nice boost (even if the interview turns out to be a prank…again).
Do you think Kimmel means it for real this time, or is Damon in for another disappointment?
