Matt Damon Takes Over 'Jimmy Kimmel Live': Our Five Favorite Moments!

In one of the best moment of late-night TV, a barrage of A-listers -- from Ben Affleck to ex, Sarah Silverman -- ran the show, while the comedian was held hostage

The Jan. 24 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live was one for the books. While the episode was originally just supposed to mark the first ever interview with Matt Damon on the show, it turned into something much, much more amazing than that.

To get revenge on Jimmy Kimmel for being the butt of one of his end-of-show jokes for 10 years (the host always pretends that Damon has been bumped because they ran out of time), Damon took over Jimmy Kimmel Live in the most hilarious way imaginable. Below, we've listed off the five best moments of the show, replete with Ben Affleck, Sarah Silverman and Demi Moore.

1. Damon Gets Some Monologue Help

Damon's monologue starts off great, but it gets infinitely better when Robin Williams comes to the aid of his Good Will Hunting costar. After establishing that Kimmel is definitely not the best standup comedian in the world, Siri directs Damon to Williams. The point is proven: Williams should do every monologue ever.

2. Ben Affleck Shows His Loyalties

It seems that all that f--king Ben Affleck really got the Golden Globe-winning director on Kimmel's side. In a hilarious twist, it's revealed that Affleck was holding Damon's cue cards for his monologue -- and swapped them for some that say Kimmel is a generous lover. "I couldn't do it to Jimmy!" Affleck cries as he walks off the stage.

3. Damon Assembles a Dream Cast

Nicole Kidman and Gary Oldman and Amy Adams, oh my! A veritable who's who of Hollywood showed up to the show, including Reese Witherspoon, Sheryl Crow and -- most surprisingly -- Demi Moore. Moore, like many of the night's other guests, had never been on the show, but the fact that she's been so long absent from the public eye really made hers the most special appearance... especially when she reveals his secret love of frozen pizzas.

4. Sarah Silverman Still Loves F--king Matt Damon

Sarah Silverman and Kimmel's relationship might be long over, but the passion is still there -- in the grossest way possible. Her description of their relationship is seriously something else. To sum it up, she likens their five-year relationship to how you feel after binge-eating New York City street vendor hot dogs. Sick!

5. The Origins of the Rivalry

Want to know why Kimmel always bumps Damon? Apparently it's because Kimmel has been trying to replace Damon for years. "Jimmy has auditioned for every movie I've ever been in," Damon says. "So, he hates me." To prove it, Damon screens a number of Kimmel's "audition tapes," including ones alongside Emily Blunt in The Adjustment Bureau and with Greg Kinnear in Stuck On You. Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds.
