LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Jimmy Kimmel enlisted the help of his celebrity friends for a hilarious new video that premiered on his post-Oscars TV special.

Among those to attend The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting were Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Bell, Emily Blunt, Jeff Bridges, Benedict Cumberbatch, Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Mila Kunis, Lupita Nyong'o, Gary Oldman, Sean Penn, Eddie Redmayne, Susan Sarandon and Harvey Weinstein.

In the clip, Kimmel plays a demanding acting teacher who throws a water bottle at British actor Redmayne for failing to execute a proper English accent. He also accused Oldman of not being able to act his way out of paper bag and to prove it placed him in a giant sack with his name on it. When Oldman finally pops out of the top of the bag, Kimmel declares, "I stand corrected."

Kimmel can also be seen letting Aniston fall over backwards onto the floor during a distrust exercise. He later beats Penn with a pool noodle while the two-time Oscar winner is rehearsing lines.

Kimmel's frequent collaborator and faux rival Damon is seen throughout the clip pretending to be lamps and chairs because Kimmel tells him he isn't ready to play people yet.

"His methods may seem quite controversial to some folks, but let me tell you: when someone lights your script on fire and duct-tapes it to your hands, you're going to find a way to say your lines," said Bridges.
