If you’ve seen ‘Team America: World Police’, Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s searing satirical comedy, you’ll definitely remember Matt Damon’s hilarious “cameo”.
He appears in ‘South Park’ creators’ film as a liberal anti-war objector who’s only able to shout his own name, which he proceeds to do many, many times.
The actor has finally responded to his involvement in the film saying it left him “bewildered” as it was a total surprise to him, but he wears the dig as a badge of honour.
“I was always kind of bewildered by Team America, I think because it’s hard for us to understand what our images are in public, I think we’re not good judges of that, and when I saw myself on screen just only able to say my own name and not really that well, I kind of wondered 'Wow, is that how people perceive me?'
“At that point I just kind of was like, I’m a screenwriter and an actor, and like really? I can barely say my own name? So I was always bewildered by that, and I never talked to Trey and Matt about that.
“And Incidentally, I believe those two are geniuses, and I don’t use that word lightly. I think they are absolute geniuses, and what they’ve done is awesome and I’m a big fan of theirs, but I never quite understood that one.
“But I will say this. Those of us who were parodied in that video were parodied because we were against the Iraq war, and we went on the record against that war, and so history is on my side not theirs.”
‘Jason Bourne’ is coming to cinemas on 27 July.
