Damian appeared on the Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday, June 20 as part of the #LateLateLondon special week in England, along with co-guest Ruth Wilson from Showtime’s The Affair.  Wilson reminisced about meeting Damian while she, along with Dominic West, were at a New York cabaret nightclub called The Box where Damian was shoved onstage among scantily clad ladies in what Damian described as, “terrifying…five women twirling nipple tassels in different directions.” Damian quickly ran off stage, only to find a ladder as a means of escape in which he climbed straight up to the lighting rig above. Here is a video clip:

Corden points out that Damian is one of the most famous redheads which has been cemented by gracing the cover of the coloring book Colour Me Good Ginger. Corden jokes it must be the highest honor of his career to date. Damian responds, “This book comes with one coloring pen-it’s orange. I give this to my Godchildren as Christmas presents for a joke and I just repeat it, year after year.” Damian then entices Corden to put on a red wig, to which Corden obliges for several laughs.

In speaking of Billions, Damian described Bobby Axelrod as a gangster-bankster and while Axe and his arch nemesis (Paul Giamatti) have seemingly come around to a partnership in season three, fans will have to wait and see what happens in season four. Damian goes on to say that his character Axe is viewed differently in the UK versus the US. Damian explains, “I think there’s a slightly different, sort of moral climate in each country and it works in microcosm when people stop me in the street, you really notice it. In America they go, ‘Axe, you’re the man! Love you man, love you man!’ But in England people say, ‘I really love your show. I love it so much. You’re such an asshole.'”

Corden gives Damian a good jabbing over his current role as ex-Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, in the upcoming film Run This Town and the use of “phenomenal prosthetics,” stating he had issues with this since Damian is “a devilishly handsome, wonderful actor for whom there are endless parts.” He continues, “Me [James Corden], Jim Gaffigan, Jack Black, occasionally Jonah Hill, Josh Gad…we’re getting together to start a group to say we feel this is unacceptable. You’re essentially just stealing our jobs.” Damian quips, “You’re looking very trim” to which Corden replies, “No this is bullshit. Fat lives matter Damian, okay? Fat lives matter!” Watch that hilarious exchange in this video:

Behind the Scenes of Billions Season 3 Episode 3 – A Generation Too Late

by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | April 10, 2018

As I mentioned a billion times before, Billions is my dream show! And not only because my favorite actor is in it, but also New York, from its landmarks to city parks to its distinct neighborhoods, appears as a cast member! As someone who feels the only home she has in the world is the city that never sleeps, I love it that the show is taking over New York, the big film studio that it is, and shooting all over the place, from Manhattan to Queens to Brooklyn to The Bronx to Long Island and to northern suburbs. I cannot thank enough to the show creators and show runners Brian Koppelman and David Levien for giving us a love letter to the city in Billions.

That said, one little problem I had until last October was, while they shot Billions all over Manhattan, they did not shoot a scene showcasing not only my but also Mr. Koppelman’s neighborhood, the Upper West Side, or as Lewisto and I love to call it, the Upper Best Side.
