Jimmy Kimmel voted out of Handsome Club by Affleck, McConaughey

Last night after the Oscars and local news Jimmy Kimmel aired a funny skit called The Handsome Men’s Club featuring cameos by such attractive souls as Sting, Patrick Dempsey, a shirtless Gilles Marini (from Sex and The City), Rob Lowe, John Kraskinski, Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Josh Hartnett, Taye Diggs, Tony Romo, Keith Urban, Lenny Kravitz, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. The bit went on way too long and was just an excuse to add cameos by countless celebrities. Every time you turned around it seemed a new celebrity was shown sitting around the ever-expanding table. The premise was that Kimmel was the head of the self-obsessed Handsome Men’s Club and was being voted out by the members for not being handsome enough. Matthew McConaughey challenged Kimmel’s presidency and then Rob Lowe pointed out that Kimmel was wearing Spanx. Kimmel countered that he looked just like Taye Diggs, to which Taye and the members objected.

The whole thing was ridiculous and was capped off in true Kimmel style with his buddies Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Affleck voted against Kimmel, shamefaced, and then Damon entered at the end and laughed maniacally, telling us we were out of time (a long running Kimmel gag). Next we saw Kimmel in bed spooning with his lover Affleck, realizing the whole thing was a bad dream. Affleck reassured Kimmel that he was attractive and was his “big daddy handsome,” at which point Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, popped out of bed and said “Ben, that’s enough, it’s getting weird.”

I didn’t think Kimmel could top his “f’ing Ben Affleck” response to then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman’s viral video, “I’m f’ing Matt Damon.” He did, though, sort of. It was more by sheer star power rather than hilarity, although I was pretty amused, particularly by Damon. He always manages to crack me up.

    Kimmel never disappoints, that was one of his best. And I love Matt Damon at the end slamming the door in Kimmel’s face, too funny!!

    What a riot. Great expressions from everyone, the mock sincerity was well done.
    Loved the near end when the kid reaches longingly for what seems to be the pizza, and not Jimmy, as Jimmy and the pizzas went out the door.
    Being hungry, I related.
    Great skit.

    I’m home now and can see the clip–thanks.

    I am a faithful reader of this website despite the fact that I can not view any of the pictures at work. a simple ‘the clip is above’ or a link would have been nice. Aside from the imbeded clip there is no mention of it being on youtube, so there was no way to know.

    I love Kimmel, he just does what he pleases. Funny sketch also on hulu and easier to find I think. Also SNL’s 2012 sketch re Palin.

  13. docalion says:

    that was totally handsome piece!!!! a very nice skit with too many stars on it!! just looks adorable!!

  14. lucy2 says:

    OMG that was awesome! I love John Krasinski. But I think I had to laugh the hardest at the Spanx and “Keith, you have lady hair!” because I have always thought that!!!

    (Er…Ethan Hawke? Maybe 15 years ago)

  15. Ricci says:

    I thought it was hilarious!

  16. Celebitchy says:

    Sorry Heb! I didn’t realize that the videos and photos could be blocked. I will try to add links to the posts with the videos for people who can’t see them!

  17. Feebee says:

    Skit was awesome, best LOL in a while. I too was confused by Hawke’s appearance. Really enjoyed Gillis’ ‘costume’.

    I wonder if Jay would get this many willing to make cameos? Despite some not being able to stand Kimmel, I think he’s sharper than Jay or Dave and judging by the cameo turn out, much cooler.

  18. Just a Poster says:

    I didn’t see this yesterday. OH MY GAWD!

    I think this almost trumps “I’m *^@&ing Mat Damon”!

  19. Hahaha Matt Damon is so HOT and hilarious! 😀

  20. ThunderC*nt says:

    The guys from LOST tv show should be talking not Damon, Affleck or Downey. I’m protective of my eggs. Sue me.

  21. Magda says:

    Ethan Hawke was there because he is the hottest. He is so cute in this skit. So younger and…

  22. Jan says:

    What is the point of these ongoing stupid videos? Is there a video contest I am unaware of? These are absolutely ridiculous and self-indulgent. Not funny the first time, and still not funny at all.

    Ummm, Jimmy’s ratings are nowhere near Jay’s. He is trying to compete with someone and he is totally out of Jay’s league. Jay rules now and always has.
