PEOPLE’s 2007 Sexiest Man Alive Matt Damon is no stranger to good exposure – or good deeds. “Matt came on the phone with me and wanted to do something that focused on his charity, OneXOne, which helps kids all over the world,” Doug Ellin, executive producer of Entourage, tells TV Guide. “It wasn’t hard to get him.”
As for Damon’s Entourage appearance, that’s a secret that’s not supposed to be spilled until the HBO’s series’ Oct. 4 sixth-season finale. Still, the cat may be out of the bag, thanks to loose lips on the show’s cast members.
SPOILER ALERT: In the scene, set in an airport, “Matt gets Vince [Adrian Grenier] to make a massive donation. He’s like, ‘Bro – whip out your checkbook!’ ” reveals Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays Sloan.
Adds Grenier: “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.”
