​Matt Damon and Mindy Kaling to co-star in Super Bowl commercial

From Michael J. Fox to Scarlett Johansson, Super Bowl commercials are famous for their celebrity cameos.

And although the Big Game is still months away, there's one rumoured new ad – featuring loveable stars Mindy Kaling and Matt Damon – that is already generating buzz.

The Mindy Project star, who had been teasing a “top secret” project with fans via social media, was spotted filming what is believed to be a Super Bowl commercial in Los Angeles with the Academy Award-winning actor this week.

With the cameras rolling, Matt can be seen in an “intimate embrace” with the comedienne, who dons a floral-patterned green dress and a matching houndstooth coat.

Nobody knows what the commercial is hocking just yet – but chances are it will be hilarious!

Mindy once played Matt‘s best friend, Ben Affleck, in her 2002 play Matt & Ben, which co-starred Brenda Withers as Matt. The award-winning play was a satire on the actors' close friendship before they filmed Good Will Hunting.

The real Matt and Ben are set to reunite once again to co-produce Incorporated, a futuristic spy thriller about big corporations that rule the world.
