Matt Damon will not be appearing on 'Infinity Challenge'.


Although previous reports stated that the Hollywood actor would be coming onto the show when Matt Damon comes to Korea on the 8th, plans ultimately fell apart. He was planned to appear in the 'Infinity Company' action blockbuster special. The PD of 'Infinity Challenge' said, "In March, we were contacted by the agency about Matt Damon appearing on the show. We'd talked about him appearing in the special, and we'd even finished the script. However, perhaps it's that Matt Damon himself wasn't notified fully of the details. Last week, we were told that he couldn't act or do action on the show. We didn't have that much time to prepare."


SEE ALSO: Watch 'Show! Music Core' Live!


The PD added, "After we heard that he couldn't do either action or acting, the article that he would be appearing on the show was released. It'll probably be difficult for him to be on the show because we can't prepare another item for him to match the viewers' anticipation."

    lol It's true doe when I first heard that matt damon was going to be on IC i was like dammmmmmn IC got $$$$$ XD then when I read this article I was like pshhh I'm not surprised. Jack black is famous but to me he's not FAMOUS! FAMOUS!! Like leo dicaprio, denzel washington, robert downey jr famous I can only think of 3 movies of jack black that r actually memorable to me an he's been in acting since 1992 (i think) So going from Jack black to Matt Damon was REALLY REACHING on IC part.

    My guess is that when Matt accepted, he thought it would be like an American show where he'd just talk a bit about his movie, and then he found out that he'd have to do more than that and turned it down. Like others have said, he wasn't really the best fit for the show in the first place. Comedians would work well, or some other celebrity that's really energetic and playful and into doing skits and stuff. But your average American actor or singer wouldn't really work well with the show
