Jimmy Kimmel Thinks Matt Damon Is a ‘Bourne Loser’
The late night host had some fun at the Boston-bred actor’s expense and compared the preview to the Zika virus epidemic.
“The new trailer for the new Bourne offering was foisted upon us today,” Kimmel said. “First the Zika virus and now this.”
Begrudgingly, the comedian did admit that “it does look pretty entertaining,” although he was likely referring to the parody trailer that the Jimmy Kimmel Live crew was able to concoct.
The faux preview reimagines the action thriller as a comedy, with Bourne playing the role of the socially inept friend who is hated by his peers.
“Jason Bourne had no friends,” the voiceover proclaims, accompanied by a clip of Damon’s character sitting alone in a room. “He was always crashing parties uninvited and his co-workers despised him.”
True to Kimmel’s “feelings” over Damon, the clip ends with a title sequence that reads “Bourne Loser.” Guess those two will never patch things up.
