“I just basically need a cause that’s about the size of Clooney’s cause, only with bigger tits.”

House of Lies -

Looking for a good charity to help enhance his public image, Hollywood actor Matt Damon (who plays himself) hires Galweather Stearn. After his initial sit down with the Pod, Marty (Don Cheadle) discovers the actor cares less about doing any real good and more about boosting his profile to stick it to his pal George Clooney.

As Marty heads out with Damon for a boys night out where he parties with the real Matt Damon – who nearly gets him beaten down in a club when Damon forces him to ask three women (Noot SeearAlex EssoeCasey Ruggieri) to makeout for his amusement, Jeannie (Kristen Bell) agrees to step in and take Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.) and his handsy friend (Skyler Gisondo) to the batting cages. When Damon shows up to the offices the next morning high as a kite Marty attempts to talk some sense into the man, throw him out, and when both fail does what it takes to close the deal. Whatever it takes.

The episode’s best moment comes with the commercial for “,” some bizarre mashup of an 80’s action movie and a legimate charity for Third World children which involves a M-16 totting Damon kicking ass and saving lives. I’ll give Damon huge props for playing a degenerate version of himself who I hope we may see again.
