LA Premiere of "Manchester by the Sea" - ArrivalsIf the all-female cast of the upcoming "Ocean's Eleven" spinoff "Ocean's Eight" wasn't already impressive enough, one A-lister recently revealed that he has a cameo in the flick -- and he should be familiar to "Ocean's" fans.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Matt Damon spilled the beans that he will be making an appearance in the spinoff, though he declined to provide details about the top secret cameo. Damon starred in the original "Ocean's" trilogy -- which included the sequel films "Ocean's Twelve" and "Ocean's Thirteen" -- as the talented pickpocket Linus Caldwell, and will bring that character to the NYC setting of "Ocean's Eight," which inhabits the same cinematic universe as its predecessors.

"I'm doing a little bit in the movie," the actor told ET. "I haven't read it yet, but the cast is phenomenal and I'm excited to see what those women do with it. It's going to be fun."

We definitely agree with Damon's excitement, considering the murderer's row of talent both in front of and behind the camera of the project: The flick stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina as the titular criminals, and is directed by Gary Ross ("The Hunger Games") and produced by original "Ocean's" director Steven Soderbergh. It centers around a heist pulled off during the Met Gala, a splashy, fashion-centric event held annually in New York City.

"Ocean's Eight" is due in theaters on June 8, 2018.
