Former Homeland actor Damian Lewis is back on US TV, after marine-turned-terrorist-turned-CIA agent Nicholas Brody met a gruesome end back in 2013.

The 44-year-old is the star of a new Showtime drama called Billions. It’s about finance, money and a “suspect trading pattern” which kicks off a government investigation. Paul Giamatti stars as an incredibly angry US Attorney. There’s a lot of staring, glaring and people walking in slow motion.

And we are already 100% on board with the series, mainly because Lewis’ new character has the best name ever: Bobby Axelrod. It’s the sort of name you want to say over and over. Bobby Axelrod, Bobby Axelrod, Bobby Axelrod.

Damian Lewis and John Goodman Head Up This Starry West End of David Mamet’s Classic Play About Small Time Crooks – April 28, 2015

Damian Lewis and John Goodman head up this starry West End of David Mamet’s classic play about small time crooks

It would be mean, cheap and generally a bit dickish to say that Damian Lewis’s big post-‘Homeland’, post-‘Wolf Hall’ return to the London stage is overshadowed by some comedy facial hair. Nonetheless: if you think the above photo of his moustache is a bit on the distracting side then seriously, you should see the thing live.

David Mamet’s classic 1975 play ‘American Buffalo’ is a three hander, and in Daniel Evans’s enjoyable but busy production, Lewis, rising Brit talent Tom Sturridge, and old American hand John Goodman each sort of do their own thing to entertaining if not entirely cohesive effect.

American Buffalo Review: John Goodman, Damian Lewis and Tom Sturridge Dial Up Emotional Tension in David Mamet’s Gift to Actors

This production of David Mamet’s 1975 play is full of gritty dialogue, three fine performances and a splendid set of sideburns, says Henry Hitchings.
