Some people on Twitter are saying that Colin Firth is Piers' Matt Damon - but when Jimmy Kimmel perpetually apologizes to Damon for bumping him from the show, that really is a joke.

I’m not proud of guessing the movie’s secret; in fact, I felt like an idiot for not having guessed it sooner, Unknown is that obvious.

This episode did not present some vague, Facebook-y story. It was loaded with head-on reference to all things Social Network.
