On Thursday night, Oscar winner Matt Damon exacted his revenge following a decade of torture by hijacking Jimmy Kimmel's late night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! and renaming it Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!Damon showed Kimmel how it's done by packing his one-evening-only late night turn with comedy and a cavalcade of A-list stars.
Damon replaced Kimmel's longtime sidekick Guillermo with legendary actor Andy Garcia, his best childhood friend and bandleader Cleto with multi-Grammy winner Sheryl Crow, and packed his couch with such Hollywood notables as Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon and Demi Moore. Plus special guest appearances by comedians Robin Williams and Sarah Silverman. Even Ben Affleck stopped by to participate in the big night, though his allegiance was torn between childhood friend Damon and former paramour Kimmel.
