Will Matt Damon Prank Jimmy Kimmel at 2017 Oscars?

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel‘s longstanding “feud” never fails to put a smile on our faces, and the granddaddy of all award shows seems like the ideal place for the ultimate Kimmel-Damon prank.

Damon will be attending the 2017 Academy Awards next Sunday as producer of Oscar darling Manchester by the Sea, and Kimmel will be hosting the ceremony. We’re doing some basic Hollywood math here: Jimmy Kimmel + Matt Damon + high-stakes live TV? There has got to be some kind of roasting in store.

So what can we expect on Oscars Sunday? Not much, apparently.

Damon told E! News’ Marc Malkin at Wednesday’s premiere of The Great Wall that he has such low expectations for Kimmel’s performance as host that he isn’t even planning any way to prank him.

“I don’t think I need to do anything to make his performance worse,” said Damon. “He’s gonna be really terrible no matter what.”

When asked if he had any message for Kimmel on his hosting skills, Damon joked, “No, [Jimmy] knows I hate him, and there’s also a restraining order at the moment, so we’re not allowed to directly address each other.”

He also went on to imply that Kimmel’s owes his success entirely to his staff who he called the “true talent behind that windbag.”
