Arch Enemies Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon To Meet for Epic Throwdown

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel

After ten years of being ‘bumped,’ Academy Award winner Matt Damon will at long-last appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Damon and Kimmel will face off Thurs., Jan. 24 at 11:35 p.m., ET/PT, when Damon makes his first official guest appearance on the show.

”May God help Damon if he dares show his stupid face,” said Kimmel.

Every night at the end of his broadcast, Kimmel signs off with an apology to Matt Damon for “running out of time.” This tradition began in the first season of “JKL,” and has been repeated at the close of every show since then. Yes, you read that right. Every.Single.Show.

You might remember this little video that Damon recorded with Kimmel’s then-girlfriend, Sarah Silverman:

Kimmel retaliated with a star-studded video of his own, co-starring Damon’s best friend and Oscar-snubbed director, Ben Affleck:

Damon has made several appearances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in comedy pieces like this:

And this, co-starring Kimmel’s sidekick/security guard Guillermo in a promotional trailer for “The Bourne Ultimatum”:

And as part of Kimmel’s nightmare in “The Handsome Men’s Club”:

But through it all, Damon has never, not once, never submitted to an interview.

But heads up, people. That’s all going to change on Thurs., Jan. 24, 2013 at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT. Mark your calendars. It’s going to be epic.
