Matt Damon was the latest A-lister to join "Saturday Night Live" as he guest starred as a very - very - angry Brett Kavanaugh in the season premiere's cold open. On Thursday, Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about allegations of sexual assault from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, reliving his high school years in the process. "I'm going to start at an 11".

"Let me tell you this", said Damon's Kavanaugh.

SNL alum Rachel Dratch also made a special appearance as Democratic senator Amy Klobuchar who asked Kavanaugh if he ever drank too many beers.

"I'm a keg-is-half-full kinda guy".

"Well guess what, I'm not backing down, you sons of bitches", he said.

Damon appeared as Kavanaugh in a hearing where he faced questions from actors playing a range of key political figures in the saga, including Republican Lindsay Graham and Democrat Diane Feinstein.

You knew the Brett Kavanaugh Senate hearing was so bad it would become fodder for the late night comedians - and Saturday Night Live picked up the challenge and ran with it.

"Dr. Ford has no evidence - none", he said. None. Meanwhile, I've got these. First of all I showed this speech to nearly no one - not my family, not my friends. Several members of the cast trotted out their impressions of the Judicial Committee senators, with the highlight being Kate McKinnon's jowly, preachy Lindsey Graham (is there any role McKinnon can't play?). "I'm going to take it to a 15 real quick!" he exclaimed noting that he wrote his speech "last night while screaming into an empty bag of Doritos". There was an Alyssa Milano joke. "I don't know the meaning of the word stop", he continued. Aidy Bryant also gave a great performance as the embattled prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who is repeatedly cut off by the men in the senate, saying "I can not believe I flew here on Southwest for this".

When Dratch's Klobuchar responded incredulously, he grew sheepish, admitting, "Sorry, I think I blacked out for a second".
