No one knows how to push your buttons quite like the people who’ve known you forever, and that’s just as true for celebrities as it is for us regular people. Case in point, long-time buddies Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who seem to rarely pass up an opportunity to (lovingly) poke fun at each other. In a new video promoting a fundraiser they’re doing through the charity site Omaze to benefit the Eastern Congo Initiative (which Affleck co-founded) and water.org (which Damon co-founded), the actors get some digs in about the iconic roles the other has played and then seen taken over by someone else—including one specific superhero. Matt Damon roasts Ben Affleck about Robert Pattinson taking over as Bruce Wayne for the 2021 film The Batman in the clip, which may be as close we get to learning how Affleck really feels about it.
In the video message, Affleck interrupts Damon’s pitch for people to donate to their Omaze fundraiser for the chance to win a lunch with the actors to tell him to “spice it up.” From there, it devolves into fake and good-natured bickering about each other’s careers. “Roles that we’ve played that maybe other people have played too, to winning effect,” Damon offers as a possible conversation topic for the contest winner. Affleck suggests they talk up their characters, Jason Bourne and Batman, at which point, Damon interrupts: “Robert Pattinson’s coming?”
Affleck brings up Jeremy Renner who starred in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, as new lead character Aaron Cross. “He expanded the Bourne universe,” Damon argues. “He improved on it,” Affleck quips.
“Pattinson took your job,” Damon retorts.
The hilarious video could be a preview of what the contest winner and a guest will experience when they hang out with the BFF actors. The official Omaze listing provides some more possible icebreakers, “like ‘When is Good Will Hunting 2 happening?’ and ‘Who would win in a duel?'”
