Matt Damon is heading to Showtime.

The Promised Land star will appear in an upcoming episode of season two as himself, said Showtime entertainment chief David Nevins, who said the show was "on fire," during Television Critics Association's executive session Saturday afternoon.

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.

Damon is among a slew of guest stars headed to the half-hour comedy in the new season, which will see House vet Lisa Edelstein and Adam Brody making appearances.

House of Lies returns Sunday evening.
