Everything You Need To Know About Matt Damon’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Takeover

By 01.25.13

The refresher course was not put together in vain. Matt Damon did a full-on takeover of Jimmy Kimmel Live last night in what was a spectacularly organized star-studded affair. Enough credit cannot be given to Damon for going full bore at this thing and pulling it off rather effortlessly. F*ck, that guy is talented.

All you really need to know is that it was pretty great and everyone talked about how much Jimmy sucks. But if you’re interested in going a little deeper here are all the relevant clips as well as my four favorite lines from Damon’s monologue:

  • “Is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?”
  • “This is like when I lost my virginity, except this is going to last way longer than one second.”
  • “I am Luke Skywalker and Kimmel is the Death Star: big and round and easily destroyed through his garbage hole.”
  • “Jimmy Kimmel is to late night talk show hosts what Magic Johnson is… to late night talk show hosts.”

And now for everything else you need to know…
