More clip reactions
  • A story at People online discusses the various appearances on Kimmel, and has some new reactions/quotes to the Matt/Sarah Silverman video, which has now been viewed over a million times on YouTube (and discussed on ET, CNN etc).

    Producers at Kimmel approached Damon this past October to appear on the show for the host's 40th birthday celebration but he opted to keep the joke running.

    As for creating the video, "I don't even think he thought twice about it," his rep tells PEOPLE. "He just said, 'I'll do it.'"

    Damon shot the video with Silverman at the end of October in Miami. "He had so much fun," his rep adds. "It was his turn to get Jimmy."

  • Examples of other media reactions are at Ohio.com, Sacramento Bee, NY Post and the Boston Globe (below). All four Kimmel-related clips are available at ComingSoon.net.

    Matt of many talents

    We knew Sarah Silverman was funny, but who knew Matt Damon could go toe to toe with the comedian? A new music video on YouTube is so hilarious we almost spat out our morning coffee. In it, Silverman breaks the news to S.O. Jimmy Kimmel that she and Damon are - er, having a physical relationship. And who shows up to help make the point? Why it's Damon himself, who mugs, dances, and gamely gets jiggy. Silverman presented the highly bleeped bit during Kimmel's show Thursday night. It's all just a gag of course. The New Hampshire-bred Silverman and Kimmel have been an item for years. And Damon, well, the Cambridge actor has a future in stand-up if he tires of acting.

    I can't stop watching that vid. Matt is really a class act. Bravo!

    PS - he wears his wedding ring in the vid in case anyone wondered.

    Views on YouTube

    If you just add the top 2 versions on youtube, the video has gotten 1.86 Million views! The Matt Damon Does Matthew McConaughey had 2.5 Million views--wouldn't be surprised if this video tops that number!

    Here's one of the Will and Grace clips ("Wishing and Hoping") on YouTube, but it may not be up for long.

    I had to buy the whole half series of Will & Grace to get Matt's episode in posterity on DVD! Matt is hilarious, though, as an English person, the whole thing makes me cringe!!! Jan

    Will and Grace

    Did the DVD have the original 'super-sized' edition of the show (about 38 minutes) or the re-edited short version?

    Almost 3.9 Million views now.

    I so love that episode of W&G. Debra Messing says he seemed terrified when she did the scene with him! LOL
