In addition to Matt Damon’s commitment early last month, news sources are now saying that Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle, and Edward Norton are all game for director James Cameron’s new climate change documentary series for Showtime.

And surprise – even Arnold Schwarzenegger is apparently involved now too.

The original announcement had Cameron teaming up with Jerry Weintraub to produce the eight-part series on the personal impact of climate change. Titled “The Years of Living Dangerously,” the plan all along has been to feature “well-known actors” interviewing people around the world who have experienced the devastating consequences of a warming planet.

“The recent devastation on the East Coast is a tragic reminder of the direct link between our daily lives and climate change,” Showtime Networks’ president of entertainment David Nevins said in a statement. “This series presents a unique opportunity to combine the large-scale filmmaking styles of James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger — arguably some of Hollywood’s biggest movie makers — with the hard-hitting, intimate journalism of ’60 Minutes’ veterans Joel Bach and David Gelber.  I believe this combination will make for a thought-provoking television event.”

“We’ll make it exciting,” added Cameron. “We’ll make it investigative. We’ll bring people the truth. And people are always hungry for the truth.”

With so many big names jumping on this one, expect the list to grow larger in the coming months. “The Years of Living Dangerously” will air on Showtime later next year.
