Matt Damon to Pimp His Charity During Entourage Cameo
Matt Damon’s upcoming guest appearance on Entourage isn’t just a chance for him to take a break from the big screen. It will also serve as an opportunity to promote one of his pet charities.
People magazine reports that Damon’s cameo on the show—which will take place during Entourage’s sixth-season finale on October 4—will feature a prominent plug for his charity for children, OneXOne.
During the episode, Damon will reportedly harangue Adrian Grenier’s character, Vincent Chase, into donating far more than he intended to, when the two run into each other at the airport.
“Matt gets Vince to make a massive donation. He’s like, ‘Bro—whip out your checkbook!’ ” reveals Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays Sloan on the HBO series.
Grenier further illuminates the scene-to-be: “The joke is that Matt is very passionate about his charity—almost in a stalkerish kind of way. Vince becomes [intimidated] by his intensity. He ends up bullying Vince into giving much more than he should.”
Sounds like a Very Special Episode of Entourage. But then, aren’t they all?
