    Matt Damon really looked like Brett Kavanaugh on ‘Saturday Night Live’

    Watch: Matt Damon plays Brett Kavanaugh on ‘Saturday Night Live’

    “Saturday Night Live” kicked off its 44th season this week. As to be expected, the topic of the opening skit was Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Playing the role of Kavanaugh: Cambridge’s Matt Damon, who did a great job capturing Kavanaugh’s look and mannerisms (as well as exaggerating them).

    Damon was clearly the star of the 13-minute segment.


    “I’m a keg-is-half-full kind of guy,” the Kavanaugh character said at one point.

    Another rant: “All I did was drink . . . a lot . . . and not think about having sex . . . at all.

    “I was the proudest, drunken virgin you’ve ever seen . . . and everyone can relate to that.”
