When ‘Billions’ of Sparks Fly, Damian Lewis & Paul Giamatti are Explosive
by Staff | Hollywood Outbreak | March 25, 2018
Billions specializes in gripping drama. The story of a high-stakes financial cat-and-mouse game between a venture capitalist (Damian Lewis) and the federal attorney who’s trying to bring him down (Paul Giamatti) has thrown some amazing twists and turns our way, resulting in some truly surprising moments. What isn’t surprising, though, is the intensity of the two actors. Lewis and Giamatti both bring their “A-games” to the series, and when the two of them meet in their rare shared scenes, the results are incredible — and both actors can sense that something special is going on.

Damian Lewis Called Me on My Smartphone

His voice. That distinguished, recognizable voice. Yes, THAT voice. Whether it’s soothing poetry reads, children’s bedtime stories or a narrated documentary, we know that voice! I’ve often said Damian could sell me a tube of toothpaste should he ever voice a commercial ad one day, whether Crest, Colgate, Rembrandt – hell, take your pick.
