`House of Lies` books Matt Damon as guest star

Los Angeles: Actor Matt Damon will lend his star power to `House of Lies` as he will guest star in the show.

Damon, 42, will play himself in an upcoming episode of the comedy series and enlist the help of Marty and the gang to start a charitable organisation, reported Ace Showbiz.

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 honoured 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.
