In closing, Kimmel promised to get Damon a small TV (but no Wi-Fi) for his basement dressing room apartment, and try harder to actually have him on the show.
Still, the pair inched closer to a breakthrough, with Kimmel admitting he liked a few of Damon’s friends, and Damon saying, “I like his show – I wouldn’t have waited for 12 years to get on if I didn’t like the show”.
“See, now things are getting totally turned around, this is what he does, and this is what he does so well”, he said. “Look at his face and look at his body, it’s not a movie star face or a movie star body”, an increasingly evil Kimmel responds.
Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel have had their issues, but luckily they’re seeking therapy. “You said that I could be on the show today”, Damon pleaded. “He thinks he is the only celebrity in California”.
In their “therapy” session, the two poked fun at Damon’s movie We Bought a Zoo as well as the 44-year-old’s looks.
Kimmel and Damon’s feud dated back to the early days of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!“, according to E News.
Bill Murray was Letterman’s first guest on “Late Night”, and the actor always makes a splash when he returns, including fabulous entrances as Liberace and Peter Pan. For a decade, the late night host told his audience that he’d run out of time for an interview with the Academy Award winning actor.
Howard Stern has stopped by numerous times to converse with his fellow talk-show host.
What would later be revealed as an elaborate method acting job, Joaquin Phoenix’s freaky appearance in 2009 confused not only Letterman, but most of America as well.
