Matt Damon is set to appear in an upcoming episode of the Showtime series House of Lies.
The acclaimed actor will portray a fictional version of himself on the comedy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Damon will portray an actor who is looking to set up a charity. However, his intentions are later revealed to be a little self-centered.
Instead of creating the charity to help people in need, Damon’s sole intention is to cast a shadow over similar efforts perpetrated by George Clooney. The clip featuring the Good Will Hunting star explaining things to Don Cheadle can be found below.
As fans well know, this isn’t Matt’s first trip to the small screen. Matt Damon recently returned to the set of the late night chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live, which found the actor kidnapping the host and taking over the show for himself.
Damon also had a recurring role as Liz Lemon’s airline pilot boyfriend on 30 Rock.
House of Lies has been a pretty big hit for the folks at Showtime. The series, which stars Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, is currently in its second season.
Internet Movie Database describes the show as follows:
“A subversive, scathing look at a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm. Marty, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information they want.”
According to The Denver Post, the Matt Damon-flavored episode of Showtime’s House of Lies is currently slated to arrive on the cable channel this Sunday (February 10).
A clip from the comedy has been included below.
In addition to his television work, Damon has a handful of films currently in the works. Not only has he been tapped to star in Steven Soderbergh’s Behind the Candelabra and Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, the actor is slated to appear in Brazil director Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem.
