While the upcoming Ocean’s Eight will feature a new, all-female crew, one member of Danny Ocean’s famed gang will be returning.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of Manchester by the Sea, Matt Damon revealed that he’s set for a part in the Sandra Bullock-led spinoff.

“I think I’m doing a little bit in the movie,” he teased. “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.” Along with Bullock, the cast includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina.

For Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy, Damon starred as Linus Caldwell, the young, naïve member of the crew, who often had to be bailed out by his parents and could definitely pull off a fake nose.

Manchester by the Sea, which Damon produced and stars his Ocean’s costar Casey Affleck, opens in theaters Friday.
