On last night’s episode of Showtime’s “House of Lies,” Matt Damon guest starred as himself – posing as a potential new client for the consultant company where Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell’s characters work.

In a similar vein to his “Entourage” appearances, Damon played up his involvement in charitable causes. This time, however, he wasn’t interested in saving the children as much as besting his close friend George Clooney.

In an exchange with Cheadle, Damon expressed what he was interested in saying, “Look, you know what I need, right? I mean, I just basically need a cause that’s the size of Clooney’s cause, only with bigger tits. I mean, that guy, he puts on a Hawaiian shirt and they hand him a f****** Oscar, right? I mean, ’cause everybody thinks he’s so deep, you know? ’Cause they see him on TV going ‘Grr, Darfur, bad!’ … F*** him. I wanna be on that podium next year pissing down all over his face.”

Some will remember that the real life Matt Damon helped start the Darfur charity Not On Our Watch with Don Cheadle, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and several others. He’s also done tremendous work in recent years with Water.org, an organization he helped co-found with activist Gary White.

But perhaps the best part of last night’s episode is the genius PSA created for the actor’s new faux charity called “Damon’s Children.” In it, a bloodied Matt Damon saves kids from violence, wields a machine gun, and helps treat patients in the hospital. Check it out below.
