Backstage secrets of American Buffalo: ‘We’re acting out hidden desires’

It is a week into rehearsals for the new production of David Mamet’s American Buffalo, and the play’s three actors, John GoodmanDamian Lewis and Tom Sturridge, have been getting to know each other. They have been to lunch. They have been playing poker. (Who won, I ask? “Becca,” says Sturridge ruefully, referring to the production’s youthful assistant stage manager, who has been ruthlessly cleaning them all out.) And, of course, there have been long and earnest discussions about the text.

“There are few things that are more revealing about someone than the way that they talk about a piece of literature or a play,” Sturridge says. “You very quickly come to have a much deeper understanding of someone than you would if you just mingled together in a pub saying, ‘All right, how are you?’ Very quickly we were talking in an intimate way about how people feel.”

Damian visits Savile Row tailoring – he’s partial to a bit of Huntsman and Burberry. His wife Helen McCrory once commented that he carries a suit better than any man she knows!

Damian Interviews Professor John McGrath About EB – Feb 16, 2015

SRF patron Damian Lewis interviews Professor John McGrath from Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Trust, Kings College, London to learn more about EB.

Epidermolysis Bullosa is a genetic skin blistering condition that affects over 500,000 people around the world, but very few people have heard of it. Those who have realise what a devastating impact it has on sufferers and their families. It is unrelenting in its pain and unrelenting in the distress it causes. – Sohana Research Foundation

American Buffalo: First Picture and Behind the Scenes Clip – Feb 16, 2015

American Buffalo: First Picture and Behind the Scenes Clip

 

Damian Lewis
Shot at a photo shoot for the play, check out a behind-the-scenes video interview with Damian Lewis discussing the upcoming production of American Buffalo. John Goodman and Tom Sturridge will star alongside Lewis in the production which will play for a strictly limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre, with previews from 16 April.

Winning the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best play, David Mamet’s explosive drama examines the fickle nature of honour among thieves. As three small-time crooks, Walter “Teach” Cole (Damian Lewis), Don Dubrow (John Goodman) and Bobby (Tom Sturridge), plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed and a coveted Buffalo nickel.

Damian Lewis in Hollywood’s Vanity Fair Issue – Feb 5, 2015

Vanity Fair British Invasion Photoshoot

Stunning shots of the many actors who have crossed the pond and made it big on screens in the US. The pages in the magazine were lovely, but the video and short film accompanying the shoot was to die for.

Behind the scenes video of the new British invasion:

Then a short film in three parts:

Los Angeles sun in the windows, Damian in various states of dress in and out of a tuxedo, the just-there ginger scruff on his face.  The aura emanating from Damian must cause quite a fiery glare in its own right. – JaniaJania
