Matt Damon impersonated Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday Night Live.

In the cold open of the NBC comedy sketch series' season premiere, the actor parodied the emotional behavior of the Supreme Court nominee during his Thursday testimony, in which Kavanaugh responded to an accusation of sexual assault from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

"I'm going to start at an 11. I'm going to take it to about a 15 real quick," said Damon as Kavanaugh, who chugged water and broke down into tears throughout the segment.

In his impersonation, Damon -- in a reference to Kavanaugh's beer drinking -- described himself as "a keg-is-half-full kind of guy." And there were many more references to the candidate's alleged drinking habits. "Look, I like beer, OK? I like beer. Boys like beer. Girls like beer. I like beer. I like beer."

"I don't know the meaning of the word 'stop,'" said Damon as Kavanaugh, in a reference to both the candidate's determination to be confirmed to the Supreme Court, as well as Blasey Ford's troubling accusation.

Damon's impersonation focused largely on the outrage expressed by Kavanaugh during his testimony -- as well as the partisan divisions it has caused.

"Am I angry? You're damn right. But if you think I'm angry now, you just wait till I get on that Supreme Court, 'cause then you're all going to pay."
