“The Martian” is about Matt Damon trying to get back to Earth after being left behind on Mars, and Ellen DeGeneres hopes the sequel takes place on Uranus.

The reigning daytime talk show queen debuted a parody of the Ridley Scott science fiction film on Tuesday, and Damon seems to approve of the concept, since he took time out of his busy schedule to star in the fake trailer.

“Even if I could make contact, it would take eight years for another person to reach Uranus,” Damon says in character as resourceful astronaut Mark Watney. “So I’m left with only one option: I’m going to have to explore the surface of Uranus.”

DeGeneres stars as the head of NASA who calls on an “expert of Uranus,” who is played by a celebrity guest who rose to fame after putting her bare butt on public display.

“The Martian,” co-starring Jessica Chastain, Kate MaraJeff Daniels, Michael Pena and Chiwetel Ejiofor, grossed $54.3 million its opening weekend.
