James Corden Plays Matt Damon's 'Bourne' Stunt Double, Falls Off a Building and Gets Hit by a Train
By Rachel McRady
Ouch! James Corden paid the price for calling Matt Damon his “identical brother from another mother.” In a skit from The Late Late Show on Monday night, the actor invited the British host to be in a Bourne film.
“I love all of his movies -- Bourne Identity, Bourne Ultimatum, Born on the Fourth of July -- they’re all classics,” Corden told the audience in the clip.
“It’s sad what happened to James, but he died doing what he loved to do,” Damon said before being told that Corden survived. “Wait, he didn’t die? That means I still have to do his show? D***it!”
Once on the show, Damon revealed how he really treats his stunt men.
“We do fights for all these movies and [the stunt men are] really good fighters, and me not so much,” he said. “I usually end up accidentally punching them, so my deal with them is… every time I accidentally punch you in the face, I’ll buy you a bottle of champagne… at the end I owed him a case of champagne.”
