Podcast:

Damian says of Billions and playing Bobby Axelrod, “This season we descend even further through the circles of hell. And as each personable, individual soul blackens and darkens because of the corrupting influence of power and money, we see the stakes just rise higher and higher. It’s really good fun. You know, this is a show about assholes being assholes, that’s why he’s [Axe] fun to play. He’s a predator, he prowls, he’s looking for prey – that’s a good metaphor for hedge fund guys who are looking for the injured wildebeest off the back of the pack that’s under performing. He’s got a swagger about him. He’s an alley cat. He’s a scrapper, he’s that boxer who lives on his wits and who’s wits are just a little bit quicker than everybody else’s so he can roll and he’s got quick feet.”

Over the last two years, Willie has sat down with some of the biggest names in news and pop culture — from actors and musicians to presidents and CEOs — to talk about the stories behind their success. Starting now, these entire conversations will be available every week on the “Sunday Sitdown” podcast.
