Damon guest stars on TV comedy 'House of Lies'
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Damon is becoming a TV comedy regular.
Showtime said 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, Feb. 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.
