Matt Damon guest stars on "House of Lies."

Call it "Ocean's 2."

Matt Damon is reuniting with friend and "Ocean's Eleven" co-star Don Cheadle on the Golden Globe-winning actor's hit Showtime dramedy, "House of Lies," on Sunday, Feb. 11.

Damon will play "a maniacal megastar version of himself," who calls on Cheadle's management consultant, Marty, to help him pick out a charity. "I just basically need a cause that's about the size of Clooney's cause, but only with bigger ----," Damon tells Marty.

The result is "Damon's Children," but Marty's team discovers that the foul-mouthed, big-headed A-list actor might be their biggest challenge yet.

Cheadle and Damon are acting onscreen together for the first time since "Ocean's Thirteen" in 2007. Cheadle recently won the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV comedy last month, and with Showtime renewing "House of Lies" for another season, he is set to continue his award-winning performance next year.

Damon, meanwhile, is fresh off a new movie, "Promised Land," but seems to be showing up more on TV these days. He "kidnapped" host Jimmy Kimmel and took over ABC's late-night show. Cheadle was one of his big-name guests.

"House of Lies" airs Sundays at 10 PM on Showtime.
