Revenge time for Matt Damon

Matt Damon took over Jimmy Kimmel's talk show as part of a long-running joke

Matt Damon has his revenge. The actor, who's been the butt of a long-running joke on Jimmy Kimmel's ABC talk show in the US, took over the programme on Thursday night and left a bound and gagged Jimmy to watch as a succession of stars stopped by.

For years, Jimmy has joked at the end of his show that he ran out of time and was unable to bring Matt on as a guest. In a show-long joke on Thursday, Matt played a kidnapper who tied up Jimmy and hosted the show himself.

His guests included Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Sheryl Crow and, in the cruellest cut of all, Jimmy's ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman.
