This marks the first time that the actor will return to the ABC talk show since hijacking it last January as “revenge” for Kimmel’s running gag of ending shows with an apology to Damon for bumping him as a guest. Damon will be joined by his fellow castmates from Feb. 7′s big-screen drama The Monuments Men, including George Clooney (who hasn’t had a sit-down appearance on JKL since its premiere 11 years ago), Bill Murray (who’s never been on the show), John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, and Bob Balaban.

    The special episode will feature a new edition of Mean Tweets, with the Momunents Men cast reading offensive comments about themselves found on Twitter.
