Matt Damon hosted "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday after opening the show as a kidnapper, tying Kimmel, background right, to a chair with duct tape and gagging him with his own tie, as guests Nicole Kidman, left, Gary Oldman and Amy Adams appeared as guests. For years, Kimmel has joked at the end of his show that he ran out of time and was unable to bring Damon on as a guest. Kimmel was the silent one Thursday.

About this Article

Matt Damon had his revenge. The butt of a long-running joke on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the actor opened Thursday night's show as a kidnapper who tied Kimmel to a chair with duct tape and gagged him with his own tie. "There's a new host in town and his initials are M.D.," Damon said. "That's right, the doctor is in." Kimmel was the silent one Thursday, watching from the back of the stage as Damon did his job.
