Matt Damon is becoming a TV comedy regular. Showtime said on Monday that Damon will guest star next week on “House of Lies.” He’ll play what the channel called a “maniacal megastar” version of himself.
Last month, Damon staged a mock takeover of Jimmy Kimmel’s ABC talk show, tying Kimmel to a chair and acting as host for a night. On NBC’s just-ended “30 Rock,” Damon appeared in several episodes as boyfriend to Tina Fey’s character, Liz Lemon.
On the Sunday, February 10, “House of Lies” episode, Damon seeks help in finding a charity to carry his name. The actor plays opposite “House of Lies” star Don Cheadle, his friend and a cast mate in the “Ocean’s Eleven” movie franchise.
