All The Matt Damon Jokes From Last Night’s ‘Monuments Men’ Takeover On ‘Kimmel’: A Comprehensive Guide

By: 02.07.14  •  12 Comments


As we’ve previewed all week, the cast of The Monuments Men took over Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, complete with Jimmy Kimmel arch enemy Matt Damon (appearing for the first time in guest capacity on the show). We’ve already covered the most excellent new installment of “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets,” and now for the main course: Everyone making fun of Matt Damon. The lead up segments are on the next page, if you’re looking to take in the whole thing chronologically.

To start the quasi Matt Damon roast, here’s Kimmel convincing George Clooney, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, and Bob Balaban they all hate Matt Damon via an insightful line of questioning. I recommend surveying all the posters in Damon’s green room.

And finally, after all these years, Matt Damon is introduced as an actual guest on the show: “An actor, at best, who only has one Oscar.” Fun burns all around, but it’s the cutaway clip at the end that is pure gold.

Come for the Matt Damon jokes, stay for Bill Murray’s reactions to Behind the Candelabra.

Matt Damon — after all these years — gets a legitimate question on Kimmel to close the show. Spoiler: things don’t end well.

Check out the next page for all the lead up interviews, complete with Bill Murray-Garfield talk and George Clooney telling the world how drunk Kimmel got on New Year’s Eve.
