ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel took on the #ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and played it forward by nominating Kerry Washington, Ben Affleck, Mayor Rob Ford and "Matt, Effing, Damon" to get out from "Behind the Candelabra" and get in on the challenge! Check it out below!
The ALS ice bucket challenge, which dares people to either donate to the cause or dump a bucket of ice-cold water over their heads, was originally started by the ALS Association in July. It quickly garnered national attention through social media as well as the participation of top celebrities who have challenged each other to take on the dare.
You can donate to the ALS Association here:
