Matt Damon is highly underrated as a comic actor.
He was great as Jason Bourne and all, but I loved him most as Carol, Liz Lemon’s pilot love interest on 30 Rock.

I have my own Jimmy Kimmel history–yes, really. In 2008, I was backstage at the show for work right after Sarah Silverman’s infamous “I’m f*cking Matt Damon” launched. The people I was there with hadn’t seen the video.
So Jimmy pulled out his laptop.
Can you picture it? All of us squeezed in around to watch. People abuse the word ‘surreal’ but that moment deserved such an adjective.
