Matt Damon and Ben Affleck on Kimmel January 2013

Matt Damon took over Jimmy Kimmel Live — renamed Jimmy Kimmel Sucks for the night — yesterday. Matt hosted with the help of special guests Reese Witherspoon, Amy Adams, Demi Moore, and Nicole Kidman. Matt was also joined by his close pal Ben Affleck. It wasn't easygoing between Matt and Ben, though. Matt's had a long-running fake feud with Jimmy, but Ben and Jimmy have always been close publicly. That rivalry came to a head last night — check out Matt and Ben's silly exchange in the clip above.

Matt had further digs for Jimmy, opening the show with a question to the audience: "Is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?" Even Jimmy's own parents came on in a prerecorded video to say Matt is the son they'd always wanted. The whole thing was latest chapter of a years-long joke between Matt and Jimmy, who's closed many a show with an apology to Matt for running out of time for their interview.
