AMC likes being in the Kevin Smith business. They run his reality series Comic Book Men and now they’re giving him a talk show, Geeking Out, which Smith will co-host with actor Greg Grunberg (Heroes).
The show is launching this weekend at Comic-Con, and to promote the series, AMC has released a clip featuring Smith and his Dogma star Matt Damon (who is promoting Jason Bourne) playing a little game where Smith gives Damon lines from comic books and Damon has to read the lines cold. It’s basically where late night talk is heading—playing games with your guests—and it’s not bad for entertainment value. At the very least, it’s the closest we’ll get to Matt Damon playing a superhero.
Check out the video below. Geeking Out premieres Sunday at 10/9c on AMC.
