Matt Damon will guest star on House of Lies, playing himself on the Showtime TV comedy, where he will reunite with his Ocean's Eleven co-star Don Cheadle, as he hires a management firm to help him start a charity so he can compete with George Clooney, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Matt recently revealed he was due to make his directorial debut in Promised Land - in which he stars in alongside his co-writer and co-producer John Krasinski - but he pulled out of the role two weeks before the film was due to go into pre-production because he "couldn't leave" his children again. He said: "I decided that I wasn't going to direct it on December 15th . That was my last day of work. The Neill Blomkamp movie [Elysium] that I was on went over. I had been away from my kids, and then I got back and had to do a really intense week or two of press for We Bought A Zoo. On December 15th, my last thing was The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and I finished it and got home and my year was over. I looked at the calendar and saw that, to get the movie out, I had to go into pre-production on January 2nd . I just couldn't leave the kids again. So, I had to call John, which was horrible."
