Matt Damon to guest star on 'House of Lies' (Spoilers, Video)
Get ready for an "Ocean's Eleven" reunion on "House of Lies" -- Matt Damon is set to guest star on the Showtime series, which stars his former co-star Don Cheadle.
Damon will appear on an episode of the show that is set to air on Sunday, February 10. Spoiler alert!
The actor plays what is described as a "maniacal megastar version of himself" and he is trying to form a charity in his name, Showtime said in a statement to OTRC.com. With the help of Cheadle's character, management consultant Marty Kaan, he creates Damon's Children, and hijinks ensue.
Damon, an actor and Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Good Will Hunting," is known primarily for his movie roles but has appeared on scripted television before. He had a recurring role on the NBC sitcom "30 Rock" in 2010 and 2011 and also guest starred on an episode of "Will & Grace" in 2002.
"Ocean's Eleven" was released in 2001 and starred George Clooney and Brad Pitt as criminal masterminds who plan to rob Las Vegas casinos. Damon played a pick-pocketing thief and Cheadle portrayed an explosives expert hired to help them. The actors reprised their roles in two sequels.
Damon recently guest hosted the ABC late-night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," interviewing a slew of top actors and actresses such as Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman, Robin Williams and Gary Oldman, while the regular host was literally tied up.

Damon and Cheadle both starred in two 2009 "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" music videos that went viral -- the former actor appeared with Kimmel's then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman in the clip "I'm [Expletive] Matt Damon," which won an Emmy, while Cheadle joined a slew of top celebrities in the host's sequel, "I'm [Expletive] Ben Affleck."
