Talented Lamp Actor Matt Damon Attends Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘School of Perfect Acting’

With John Krasinski on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! post-Oscars show.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel had an anticipated post-Oscars show following the awards on Sunday night, and as promised, a whole lot of A-listers and Oscar winners made guest appearances.

In this one bit, Matt Damon and John Krasinski attend “The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting” along with Sean Penn, Harvey Weinstein, Emily Blunt, Jeff Bridges, Gary Oldman, and Lupita Nyong’o. Kimmel plays an acting coach determined to leave behind a legacy with America’s best actors.

He tells Damon he must continue to play a lamp until he “graduates” to his next acting phase. He does so quite gracefully:

Jeff Bridges’s lamp acting, on the other hand, is not up to par:

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are asked to “put their mouths on each other” while “breathing” their lines to one another:

And finally, the sketch ends with Damon in his rightful place:
