If Matt Damon isn't careful, he's going to make another talk-show host enemy in James Corden.

The "Jason Bourne" star -- who has famously if jokingly feuded with Jimmy Kimmel for years -- agreed to let Corden have a part in his latest film -- but as his stunt double, and only because he thought killing off Corden would be a great way to get out of doing the interview.

"James looks like he can take a punch," Damon said of his host. "That can't be the first time he's been punched in the face. He's got an extremely punchable face."

While Corden was game for the gig, the tasks involved proved a bit too much for him to handle.

The day involved Corden jumping off a building and getting hit by a train, among other indignities, but he took it like a champ -- despite some rather personal injuries. In the end, though, Damon still had sit down for his interview, much to his chagrin.
