'Saturday Night Live' premiere features Matt Damon as Brett Kavanaugh

Matt Damon

On Saturday's season premiere, the NBC sketch series mocked Kavanaugh's recent testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, with Oscar victor Matt Damon portraying the circuit court judge.

Damon played Kavanaugh in a sketch parodying the Supreme Court nominee hearings from Thursday, when the judge sternly denied accusations of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Of course, everyone took shots at Kavanaugh's penchant for beer, his infamous calendar and his animated emotional state. "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".

Before introducing the show with its standard "Live from NY." line, Damon's Kavanaugh shotgunned a beer and offered one final warning.

Watch Damon's cold open below. "I'm gonna start at an 11".

That's the first of many, many mentions of beer. "I'm a keg-is-half-full kind of guy", "I don't know the meaning of the word 'stop, '" and "To quote my hero, Clint Eastwood's character in 'Gran Torino, ' 'Get the hell off my lawn'".

And if Damon's Kavanaugh impressions were not enough for people to love the sketch, it also featured Kate McKinnon as Lindsey Graham. "And meanwhile, I've got these calendars".

The sketch also mocked the Senate Judiciary Committee's treatment of sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was played by Aidy Bryant.

Cast members Alex Moffat and Cecily Strong appeared as Sens.

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

"I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you'd ever seen", Matt joked before adding "If you think I'm angry now just wait until I get on that Supreme Court because then you're all going to pay" - he said before shotgunning a beer.

When asked if he drank so much he blacked out, he stammered for a few seconds before claiming he had just blacked out for a second right then.
