Obviously staged. Funny, though.

I'm pretty sure it was a joke. Damon seemed way too pissed off.

It's all a set up because they "never" have time for him. Damon deserves an Oscar for it though, LOL

Kimmel was also one of the masterminds behind the Andy Milonokis Show

Yeah I thought it was staged, although Damon did such a good job I wasn't sure for a second.

According to Bill Simmons of ESPN.com, a close friend of Jimmy Kimmel, it wasn't staged.

Eric (New York, NY): Please tell us what really happened with Matt Damon on the Jimmy Kimmel show.

Bill Simmons: Jimmy will get mad at me for this, but screw it - Damon was supposed to be the last act of the show, and they screwed up the time and only gave him like 45 seconds, he didn't even get a chance to show a clip from his movie. So Damon totally flipped out, it was like the scene from Good Will Hunting when he flips out on the math professor. I can't believe nobody made a bigger deal about it. Everyone thought it was a setup but it actually happened, Jimmy was pretty shaken afterwards.

ummm, Bill Simmons said this later in the same chat

And by the way, I always get e-mails from people wondering if Perry was in on the joke - I was kidding about the Matt Damon thing before, that was really a joke. But Perry and Windy City - not a joke. He legitimately thought he was the star of that movie.
