    Matt Damon is back to his pranking ways again!

    The Monuments Men actor stopped by Good Morning America to promote his latest film when he kidnapped George Stephanopoulos shortly before his segment.

    "I have no idea where George is," Damon said with a smirk. "I might have tied him up."

    The camera then showed Stephanopoulos tied down in a chair outside the studio.

    The actor's hijinks are similar to when he bound Jimmy Kimmel before his interview on the nighttime talk show.

    "Any chance to sit in a host's chair I jump at," Damon said.

    But it looks like Damon's playful mood may have been sparked by having a little free time on his hands.

    When thanked for stopping by the program, he said, "Well, I'm away from my four crazy kids for a few minutes so I'll do anything, I'll serve coffee, whatever you need!"

    Damon was also questioned about his reaction to the tragic passing of his Talented Mr. Ripley co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    "He was one of the best actors that ever lived without a doubt," he explained. "And he was an even better person. He was a beautiful person. It's horrible."

    Hoffman was discovered in his New York City apartment on Sunday, Feb. 2 after an apparent overdose.

    An autopsy was expected to be conducted Monday, Feb. 3, by the New York Medical Examiner's Office, though toxicology-test results will not be immediately available.
