Matt Damon didn't go 9/11 times 100 over the brain-dead way Trey Parker and Matt Stone spoofed him in "Team America: World Police" ... in fact, the actor says he LOVED it.

Damon was doing an AMA on Reddit today ... and said he thought the 2004 flick's mentally handicap "Matt Damon" puppet was hilarious ... even though, for a long time, he wasn't in on the joke.

The 43-year old actor explains, "I mean, I never understood it, and then I heard an interview with them [Trey Parker and Matt Stone] and they said the puppet came in looking kind of mentally deficient and they didn’t have time to change it, so they just made me someone who could really only say his own name."

Matt says the best part was that the character was against the war in Iraq.

MATTT DAAMON!!

why would they say he was represented in a brain dead way??? it was accurate and hilarious and these idiots say 9/11 100 times over in the same sentence. So really tmz, who is more brain dead? two guys who write hilarious stuff in a cartoon, movie and one of the best plays of all time or the guy who wrote your headline? Are you sure you understand the movie? Its a spoof on how these guys just use their names over and over to explain their political beliefs like they are more important than other Americans. Liberals

Matt, issue a 10million dollar reward for information leading to full disclosure of the UFO situation.
Awarded based on how much it contributed after the fact.
I know you are a fairly smart man. Think about it.

It will be interesting to see if lightweight Jimmy Fallon can keep the audience watching the Tonite Show. I highly doubt it. Insiders are still mystified why Lorne Michaels decided that Mr Fallon was the right choice to take over for Leno after tonight' s show. Indeed I was almost embarrassed for Michaels as he called Fallon "this generation's Johnny Carson...." Excuse Me?? Carson had a great monologue and interviewing skills, Leno, although appallingly bad as an interviewer, was good at the monologue, and Letterman was very good at both. But Fallon?? A terrible joke teller and interviewer. Where does that leave him? Dancing with justin timberlake or doing his Rich Little impressions? How long will audiences stand for that? I almost feel sorry for Fallon. The chances of him succeeding are about the same as Lindsay Lohan staying out of trouble.
