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.

But what he didn’t know is that Damon invited him to play his stunt double. After he gets punched in the face and suffers a black eye, Corden is none too pleased.

“I wouldn’t say I’m angry at Matt, but I do think I’ve been misled as to my specific role in the film,” he said. “I think this is a waste of my talents.”

Damon reasoned, “Stunt men are expensive. James looks like he can take a punch. It can’t be the first time he’s been punched in the face. He has an extremely punchable face.”

Next up, Corden has to jump off a tall building, aiming to land in a dumpster but unfortunately he misses. “I dislocated my penis, which I didn’t know was possible,” he quips.

Finally, he’s simply asked to walk across the street, when he gets hit by a train.

“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.”
