The 'Contagion' actor will play himself on the Showtime comedy and enlist the help of Marty and the gang to start a charitable organization.
Matt Damon will lend his star power to "House of Lies". Showtime announced at the TCA winter press tour on Saturday, January 12 that the 2007 People's Sexiest Man Alive would guest star in the show's second season.
The Academy Award-nominated actor will play himself in an upcoming episode of the comedy series. He will seek the help of the management consultant led by Don Cheadle's Marty Kaan to start a charitable organization. Behind his seemingly generous plans though, he has an ulterior motive to compete with George Clooney.
The upcoming TV gig will reunite Damon with his "Ocean's Eleven" co-star Cheadle. The Jason Bourne in the first three "Bourne" movies recently also signed up to appear as an official guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" after a decade of fake feud with the show's host, Jimmy Kimmel.
"House of Lies" just returned with its second season on January 13. On the same night, its lead actor Cheadle was honored with the Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical prize at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
