Video: Matt Damon Kidnaps Jimmy Kimmel Ahead Of Tonight's JKL Appearance

It happens tonight! January 24 marks the night Matt Damon will finally appear as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Any chance Kimmel will run out of time? On any other night, the answer to that would probably be yes, however, based on this video, it looks like Matt Damon has ensured that he will have the spotlight on tonight's JKL as he's kidnapped the host. Check it out ahead.

As we reported previously, Matt Damon is going to appear as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. This appearance comes after years of being "bumped" from the show at the end of the episode, a recurring joke on the late night talk show, which inspired some great bits over the years (including a couple of star-studded music videos.)

In an effort to bring a little additional attention to Damon's appearance tonight, this video popped up on the JKL YouTube Channel and shows a slightly creepy Damon with Kimmel tied up in his basement.

Factoring in the Talented Mr. Ripley, we've seen a creepier Damon before, but the hoodie and sinister laugh do the trick in showing just how "serious" he is about getting on Kimmel's show. And it happens tonight! Set your DVR or be sure to tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live to see what happens when these two rivals come face to face. The episode airs at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
