Introducing Reverend Jimmy Kimmel!
The funny man took on a very different role when he performed the vow renewals between Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, in St. Lucia, revealing a skill many were unaware the late night host had.
But Kimmel is far from the first celebrity to perform a wedding.

By the power vested in late night television, Jimmy Kimmel pronounced Matt Damon and wife, Luciana, husband and wife for a second time over the weekend.
The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host, 45, officiated the sunset ceremony on Saturday in St. Lucia as Matt and Luciana renewed their vows 10 years after their first meeting, PEOPLE has learned.
The couple confirmed their commitment to each other in front of 50 guests, including their four daughters, Kimmel's fiancé Molly McNearney, actors Ben Affleck, his wife Jennifer Garner, Casey Affleck and Don Cheadle.

And the late-night war of words continues!
Following the back and forth bashing between Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and Jay Leno, 62, in 2010, Kimmel is at it again, now telling Playboy in its March issue (on newsstands Friday), "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."
Kimmel, who three years ago called Leno a "tattle-tale" for talking about him to Oprah Winfrey, goes on to say, "Strangely, I don't even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I'm asked."

Matt Damon more than made up for his decade of being bumped from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Declaring "I am in command of this ship," Damon not only hijacked the show Thursday night, but he brought along a little big-name help.
Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Robert De Niro, Don Cheadle, John Krasinski and Oprah Winfrey all played a part.
Andy Garcia sat in as sidekick. Sheryl Crow led the band.
And where was Kimmel? Oh, he was there, all right: gagged and tied on the back of the set, as Damon took over.

It may have been past her bedtime, but Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alana Thompson and Mama June Shannon brought the laughs to late night Monday on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Alana – who is 7 years old – handled the appearance with her plenty of attitude, and Kimmel kicked off the hilarious segment by asking the mother-daughter duo about their infamous nicknames, then the conversation quickly turned to another famous reality television family: the Kardashians.
"Do you watch the Kardashians ever?" Kimmel asks.
"No," June says.
"You don't watch them? Because their show is making millions of dollars and their show is just about as popular as yours is," Kimmel says. "Now are you guys making millions of dollars, too?"

Robert Pattinson managed to (mostly) avoid talking about his personal life on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday – but he did make reference to his rootless living situation.
"Last time you were here, I think you were homeless, right?" Kimmel asked the star, who has been on a publicity tour to promote his new movie Cosmopolis.
Pattinson took a brief pause, nodded and answered, "Still am."

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is engaged!
PEOPLE has learned that Kimmel, 44, popped the question to girlfriend Molly McNearney, 34, while vacationing in South Africa's Kruger National Park.
Kimmel's rep confirmed the news but declined to offer additional details.
Kimmel, the host of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and McNearney, a co-head writer on the show, started dating in 2009.

If Thursday's announcement of the Emmy Awards nominations is any indication, TV fans will be laughing out loud when the show, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, airs live Sept. 23.
That's because Kimmel, who replaced Nick Offerman late Wednesday night, was a hoot while delivering the news alongside Scandal star Kerry Washington. She stepped up to the podium at the Television Academy's Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in Los Angeles in a pretty white, flowered top with her hair slicked back. Kimmel, on the other hand, was disheveled in lavender pajamas.
Here are the Emmy host's best lines:

Oprah Winfrey is not the only big star staying up late after the Oscars next Sunday. PEOPLE has learned that there are even more celebrities joining Jimmy Kimmel's seventh post-Oscar special!
Jessica Biel, new dad (again) Jason Bateman, JJ Abrams, Steven Tyler, Tyler Perry, Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Ryan Philippe are on board for the show's big bit "Movie the Movie."
Given the show's history, it's promising – even if Samuel L. Jackson has choice words for those potentially involved (ABC previously announced Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Tom Hanks.) Check out a very bleeped teaser here: Moviethemovie.com.
It should come as no surprise that the skit will push the envelope. Kimmel's annual special has produced LOL-worthy comedy pieces in the past including "F*@#ing Ben Affleck," "Handsome Men's Club," "Hottie Body Hump Club" and "Tom Hanks's Toddlers in Tiaras".
