Matt Damon hijacks 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!,' Nicole Kidman gives lap dance (Video)
Following years of being the butt of a joke, Matt Damon recently hijacked the ABC late-night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," which featured several celebrity guests, such as Demi Moore, current Oscar nominees Ben Affleck and Amy Adams and Robin Williams and Nicole Kidman -- both of whom gave a bound and gagged Jimmy Kimmel a lap dance.
It was the most star-packed episode of the show since the program was moved half an hour earlier to 11:30 p.m., the same time as NBC's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman," more than two weeks ago. It also earned record ratings.
For years, Kimmel has pretended to issue an on-air apology to Damon, claiming that he could not be interviewed because they had run out of time.
The Oscar-winning actor famously helped the host win an Emmy - given for the 2008 viral video "I'm [Expletive] Matt Damon," which starred Kimmel's then-girlfriend Matt Damon. The clip spurred the reaction video that "I'm [Expletive] Ben Affleck," which featured a slew of celebrities and spoofed "We Are The World."
Check out 9 highlights from Matt Damon's "hijacking" of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!." Also, check out PHOTOS from the episode, which aired on Thursday, January 24.
1. Matt Damon, M.D., makes a sex joke and welcomes Andy Garcia and Sheryl Crow..
Damon laughs maniacally in a prerecorded segment that shows him standing next to Kimmel, who is gagged and tied up in an office chair.
"Tonight, you didn't run out of time for me, did you, Jimmy? No, no I ran out of time for you," Damon says as Kimmel makes a sound through his gag. "What's that Jimmy? Huh? Is there a new host in town? And his initials are M.D. That's right. The doctor is in."
"Jimmy has bumped me from this show 1,205 times," Damon said. "For 10 years, every night I wait in that green room and every night Kimmel says apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time. I've been waiting for this moment for a long, long time. This is like when I lost my virginity, except this is going to last longer than one second."
He then declares that he is making a few changes to the show. He replaced Kimmel's sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez with actor Andy Garcia, who put on a heavy accent and carried a taser. Cleto, band leader of house band the Cletones, was kicked out next and rock and pop singer Sheryl Crow was put in his place.
"Do you think you can handle this?" Damon asked.
"I got this," she replied. "I'm Sheryl Crow."
She later performed on the episode.
2. Cue Ben Affleck.
"Look, Jimmy is not all that bad, he's actually got some really good qualities," Daman said in his monologue. "He's funny, he's smart, he's good to his family, he's an excellent lover. Wait a minute, what is going on here, I didn't write any of this!"
The camera then panned to Affleck, who was shown holding up a cue card on the side of the stage.
"Oh come on, man!" Damon said.
"I'm sorry!" Affleck replied. "I couldn't do it to Jimmy! I never want it to end up this way."
"He doesn't even love you like I love you!" Damon said.
3. Cue (naughty) Robin Williams.
Following a suggestion for a good stand-up comedian from iPhone voice command assistant Siri, Damon summoned Williams, who starred in "I'm [Expletive] Ben Affleck" as well as in "Good Will Hunting," the 2005 film that won the actor and Affleck an Oscar for screenwriting.
Williams showcased some prime Siri-related comedy material and then proceeded to give Kimmel a lap dance.
4. Cue (naughty) Nicole Kidman.
"How are you doing there, Jimmy?"Damon asked "I'm just kidding -- I don't give a [expletive]."
He then said: Jimmy let me ask you something -- have you ever had Nicole Kidman on the show?"
The Australian actress then stepped out and & gave Kimmel a lap dance.
5. Cue Gary Oldman and current Oscar nominee Amy Adams.
Oldman joined Kidman on the couch and was followed by Adams. The actress, who is nominated for "The Master," joked that Kimmel that the last time she was on the show , in 2011, marked "the worst experience" of her life because when he gave her a greeting kiss, he "slipped me the tongue."
"It's probably the only way he can meet women," he joked.
6. Reese Witherspoon drops in from a BevMo run.
What do you have in the bag?" Damon asked.
She then pulled out a bottle of Hennessey cognac and Jose Cuervo tequila.
"That one's empty," Damon said.
7. Demi Moore surfaces.
Moore, who has shied away from press appearances since her highly-publicized breakup with husband Ashton Kutcher in 2011, showed up on the episode, appearing on the street outside the studio after Garcia pretended to throw a rock and hit her. She then joined Oldman, Kidman, Adams and Witherspoon on the coach.
Damon asked her why she has never appeared on the show before."I'm really uncomfortable with liars and I mean, he's not trustworthy," Moore said. "I mean you're trustworthy. I mean, you're [expletive] Matt Damon."
8. Picture time!
"This is without question the best couch ever assembled on the 'Jimmy Kimmel' show," Damon said, before getting the other five stars to get up to pose for a photo with the gagged and bound Kimmel.
9. Cue Sarah Silverman.
"She dated Jimmy Kimmel for five years and made love to me for two incredible minutes," Damon joked, referring to their "I'm [Expletive] Matt Damon" video.
After comparing her current relationship with Kimmel to eating a hotdog from a street vendor, Damon asked her if there was anything she wanted to say to Kimmel, Silverman said: "No, I'm good."
BONUS: Payback time
Jimmy, is there anything you wanna say before we wrap things up?" Damon asked Kimmel at the end of the show. "Wait, I'm sorry, we're out of time."
The episode aired a day before Kimmel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was joined at the ceremony by his fiancee, Molly McNearney, his family and longtime friend Carson Daly, who used to work as his intern when he was a radio DJ in Los Angeles.
Daly also starred in the cult 2003 Comedy Central movie "Windy City Heat," which Kimmel and former "Man Show" co-host Adam Corolla co-produced.
Kimmel is the 2,489th recipient of a star on the Walk of Fame. His is located at 6840 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of El Capitan Entertainment Centre, where he films "Jimmy Kimmel Live!." It is also the location of the Oscar red carpet.
