Every kid has dreamed up their own comic book heroes, or written their tales of grand adventure. However, few of them group up to be celebrities that have A-list friends who can bring it to life. But that’s just what Jimmy Kimmel got for this 50th birthday.
The last night staple has hit the mid-century mark, and as part of the festivities, J.J. Abrams rounded up Kimmel pals and associates Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Cousin Sal, Jon Hamm, Shaq, Ty Burrell, Billy Crudup, Jake Tapper, Wanda Sykes, and Matt Damon to make a trailer for “The Terrific Ten.” Yep, Abrams used Kimmel’s childhood comic as the source material….and it’s pretty dumb. But the celebs have a lot of fun with the goofy material, and Kimmel is pleased as punched to revisit a chapter from his past.
It turns out, “Justice League” isn’t the only superhero movie in town this week.
