Matt Damon gate crashes the latest episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live

MUMBAI: Actor Matt Damon took popular host and friend Jimmy Kimmel by surprise on the latest episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The actor hilariously gate crashed one of the show’s popular segments, filmed in Las Vegas. In the segment, Kimmel introduces Aunt Chippy who is playing blackjack at a casino in LA to try and win money for the show’s studio audience, but to Kimmel’s surprise Aunty Chippy wasn’t alone. Matt Damon was sitting right next to her dressed in a pair of sunglasses and a fine mullet wig!

Spotting Matt at the table, Kimmel quipped, “Hold on — there’s not supposed to be anyone else at the table,” and Aunt Chippy replied, “If I knew he was going to be here, I would’ve shaved my legs, Jimmy.”

When asked about his sudden appearance, the actor said, “I’m just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit. I took a midnight train going anywhere.” “Thought maybe I’d play some cards with Aunt Chippy,” said Damon, who explained he was in Vegas for the premiere of “Jason Bourne”.“I don’t know — is that a crime?”

Aunt Chippy who has a fantastic track record of winning at the game was actually at the losing end in spite of Matt’s generous offer to keep the game going. Damon was feeling generous, he said, “Hang on. Wait a minute. Jimmy, I was thinking, you know. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen $10,000, but I personally like your studio audience a lot, and I feel like some of them like me. I think we’ve gotta do this again.”

But of course, that did not help.

Looks like, it was bad day for the Jimmy Kimmel Live audience, but, definitely a good day for the two.

The duo have been close friends for years now, and keep pulling pranks on each other much to the amusement of fans. Throughout the episode they kept calling each other out and the actor even said he’d love to do the segment again.
