Byline: ANI

Washington, Apr 17 (ANI): Hollywood actor Matt Damon is set to re-enact the American history for a documentary in The History Channel.

Other celebs joining the 'The Departed' star to film dramatic performances for 'The People Speak' are Viggo Mortensen, Marisa Tomei etc.

The series will shed light on how the country's democracy was shaped by ordinary Americans.

Damon will appear in a vignette about John Steinbeck's 1939 novel The Grapes of Wrath, while Tomei will play factory worker Harriet Hanson Robinson.

"I am a firm believer in this project, proud to be part of it and proud that we are working jointly with History," Contactmusic quoted as him as saying.

"The message that is so critical to disseminate is that change doesn't come from the top, but rather from the bottom, and that without everyday citizens pushing to make a difference, there would be no America," he added.

These clips will be aired together with actual interviews and archival footage. (ANI)
