Damon's dead-on impersonation of McConaughey

On Monday's Late Show with David Letterman Matt Damon absolutely nails his impersonation of Matthew McConaughey





That Damon has grown into quite a fine actor.  Interesting to contrast his career path with that of Ben Affleck, huh?  Per IMDB, Damon is currently filming The Bourne Ultimatum after finishing up Ocean's Thirteen, while Affleck is slowly recovering from Gigli, Paycheck, and Jersey Girl. (In his defense, Smokin' Aces looks entertaining).

Welcome to the big leagues, Jane Skinner

Jane Skinner, welcome to Shepardville.  Skinner, who contributes her "Skinnerville" segment to Shepard Smith's "Studio B with Shepard Smith" program on Fox News Channel, made the studio crew (and anyone watching) laugh out loud with this blooper:




Even funnier than Skinner's goof was Smith's reaction.  Talk about self-awareness!  Shep has a bit of experience in this area, too, having committed one of the biggest blunders in recent newcast history:



One more funny note about Skinner's slip: the last time I played her blooper, one of the two videos served up by YouTube's recommendation engine was Joe Cocker singing "Help From My Friends."   Hopefully Google's smart programmers improve that algorithm.
