On the February 10 episode of “House of Lies,” we are going to be seeing Marty and the rest of the gang back in their familiar setting, and also preparing for a brand-new visitor who carries with him quite a bit of prestige: Matt Damon. Unlike “30 Rock” (where he played an airline pilot named Carol and also a love interest for Liz Lemon), the Oscar-winning actor here is actually going to be playing himself.
As you would expect, nobody within these walls is going to know just how to handle an A-list star, and it leads to them staging a mass freakout. There is apparently a conception that Damon is either a diva or a hippie who lives in a yurt, and so the conflicting ideologies as to how to deal with him is going to hopefully lead to some hilarity.
Damon’s arrival on the show comes at a pretty interesting time, as Marty had just finally managed to land his first major player in the casino business after Pincus turned down his idea of a business venture that leveraged the world of social media to make more money from within a casino. You would think that he would be spending his time trying to ensure that this expensive plan ended up being a success, but if you are going to be side-tracked by anything, we do have to say that a major Hollywood star is a pretty darn good excuse.
