Try as he might, Matt Damon just keeps getting left in space. From Interstellar to new blockbuster The Martian, the actor just can’t help from getting stranded among the stars. Now, in a hilarious spoof airing on Tuesday’s Ellen, the actor is "Stuck on Uranus."
"Even if I could make contact, it would take eight years for another person to reach Uranus," Damon -- as his Martian character Mark Watney -- deadpans in the parody trailer. "So I’m left with only one option. I’m going to have to explore the surface of Uranus."
Damon is joined in the trailer by DeGeneres herself, playing the head of NASA, and Kim Kardashian as an expert on, um, space.
"Did somebody say Uranus?" the reality star wonders in the trailer, which features the appropriate tagline: "One Man. One Planet. One Joke."
"No matter what happens," Damon says, "tell the world, tell my family that I never stopped fighting to get off Uranus."
No "buts" about it, Ellen couldn’t get enough of the joke.
"You could say he was ‘stuck on Uranus’ or you could say he was ‘left behind’," the host cracked after showing the fake trailer.
