Matt Damon Roped In As Guest Star For ‘House Of Lies’
If you thought House of Lies couldn’t get any cooler as a show, you are wrong. The makers of the show have roped in Matt Damon to guest-star in one of the episodes and this can only help to raise the coolness quotient of the show. Don Cheadle the start of the show and Damon’s co-star on ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ might have also pulled a few strings to get him on the show. It won’t be too surprising if Matt himself is a fan of the show.
About Damon’s role in the episode THR has reported “Damon will employ the House of Lies gang, led by Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, to help him start a charitable organization to compete with George Clooney”. Seems like a really interesting premise. Also, it would be a treat to watch Damon and Cheadle together on the screen. One can only hope Damon doesn’t end up stealing Cheadle’s thunder. Well, let’s not forget Cheadle won a Golden Globe this year for his role in House of Lies and he beat guys like Jim Parsons and Louis CK to the podium, so this guy knows his stuff.

By the way for those unaware, House of Lies is about a management consultant named Marty, who is really great at his job. So much so that he would go to any extent to please his clients. But, his personal life is in complete disarray. Seems, like people love characters like the one Cheadle plays on the show, after all he is the quintessential bad boy. Interestingly, the show is based on Martin Kihn’s book, House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time. Cheadle on his part still does the odd film project, despite being busy with the show.
He recently played a substantial role in the Denzel Washington starrer ‘Flight’. Soon, he shall be seen in Iron Man 3. As far as a Golden Globe is concerned, this isn’t the first time Cheadle was nominated for one. The only difference is, instead of a TV show he was in 2004 nominated for the film Hotel Rwanda. Cheadle’s performance in the film and the film itself was extremely moving and many felt that year, Cheadle deserved the award. He also received an Academy Award nomination for the film.
