Matt Damon to appear in Showtime documentary series

Matt DamonHollywood superstar Matt Damon has signed on for an eight-part documentary series on Showtime being developed by James Cameron and Jerry Weintraub. The series focuses on the effect humans have had on climate change and is being produced by David Gelber and Joel Bach, who have worked for CBS' 60 Minutes.

The project ties in closely to Damon's personal beliefs. He is an environmentalist and philanthropist, as well as one of the founders of the Not On Our Watch Project, which aims to bring global attention to stopping mass atrocities. In addition, he is also one of the founders of Water.org, which works to provide clean water to Africa, and supports the One Campaign that strives to fight AIDs and poverty in the third world. He also participates in programs designed to improve children's lives as well as another which provides hunger relief to people. You have to respect someone who gives back so much to make the world a better place.

Damon will be seen soon in Promised Land, an anti-fracking movie directed by Gus Van Sant, and Behind the Candelabra, a bio-pic about Liberace.

Cameron has become more of an environmentalist as he has grown older. Some right-wing critics have alleged that Avatar was actually about the environment. He did participate in a program to plant one million trees when the film released on home video. The director also works with groups exploring climate change in the oceans and has lobbied for governmental action on climate change.
