Priyanka Chopra's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live was always going to be special, but was made just that little bit more so by the presence of actor Matt Damon. (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra's Quantico: How the West Was Won. Olivia Pope Tweeted)
Matt, who was on the show promoting his new film The Martian (and it's entirely serendipitous that NASA has just evidence of water on Mars), is the celebrity of celebrities on Jimmy Kimmel Live, courtesy a protracted and elaborate 'feud' with the host. For years, Jimmy closed each show with, "Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time" - a hilarious takeaway line that led to several gags, including the Bourne Trilogy star showing up to 'hijack' an entire episode in 2003. And he was Priyanka's co-guest on Monday night.
That's gotta be something. Priyanka, 33, was on Jimmy Kimmel Live in aid of her new American TV show Quantico, the first episode of which aired last week in USA. On Twitter, she declared herself excited to be on the show with Matt Damon, who will soon return as amnesiac CIA agent Jason Bourne in the fifth film of the series.
Quantico has created quite a traffic jam on social media with several celebrities tweeting about Priyanka's performance as FBI rookie Alex Parrish, among them actress Kerry Washington who plays Olivia Pope on the hit show Scandal.
