Billions of Recognition at the Critics Choice Nominations

It seems every project Damian touches or is a part of turns to gold…or should I say, billions?  Whether he’s receiving recognition for his work individually or collectively, he sure can pick them! And while we love when he’s in the spotlight receiving the recognition he deserves, we also know he is proud of his fellow colleagues who he gets to work with 6 months out of the year on the set of Billions.

Today two of his Billions co-stars were nominated by the Critics Choice Awards – Paul Giamatti for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal as U.S. District Attorney Chuck Rhoades – and Asia Kate Dillon for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for their portrayal as Taylor Mason, the whip-smart hedge fund intern of Damian’s ‘Bobby Axelrod’ on the show.

Asia spoke of their work with Damian on Billions back in June of this year at the Split Screens Festival. How does it feel to work with Damian Lewis? Fan Fun with Damian Lewis writes:

“I was not rattled. He is so generous and considerate and kind and compassionate and down to earth.”

Asia says Damian has the ability to totally engage with you but then when they say “roll” he just snaps into it, feeling and reacting truthfully to the moment in the imaginary circumstances of the world. Having a partner as generous as Damian makes the experience extraordinary, they say, because they can only be as good as their screen partner allows them to be.

“Because Damian has such an ability to listen and react truthfully in the moment, I’m able to be totally absorbed in that world and that is a great joy.”

So it comes as no surprise Asia is nominated for Best Supporting Actor when they work with the likes of Damian Lewis!

Back in June Damian tweeted support of his co-worker Asia:

Damian Films Scene With Kelly AuCoin on the Set of ‘Billions’ – Nov 22, 2017

Damian Films Scene With Kelly AuCoin on the Set of Billions

by Andrew Bullock for MailOnline – DailyMail – November 22, 2017

NEWS ALERT:   What do we have here? It’s Dollar Bill and Axe together again! Our favorite actor was seen filming yet another scene in New York City while on the set of Showtime’s hit series Billions, alongside Kelly AuCoin who plays Dollar Bill Stearn.

On Monday he was seen shooting scenes with on-screen wife Malin Akerman on the streets of New York City.

But Damian Lewis swapped Malin for co-star Kelly AuCoin on Tuesday – and found himself unsure where to look as Kelly dropped his slacks in front of him.  In what looked to be a comic scene in the American drama series, Kelly stood before Damian in just a pair of checked boxer shorts, on the street, in full view of anyone passing by. The scene appeared to feature some sort of tiff between Bobby and Kelly’s character Dollar, resulting in the awkward trouser drop.

The pair were seen shooting the scene outside of a parking garage, as Damian’s character Bobby Axelrod got into a navy Porsche at the end and drove away.

NEWS ALERT:   Our favorite actor was caught on camera! Damian was seen filming in New York City on the set of Showtime’s hit series Billions, along with Malin Akerman who plays his television wife Lara Axelrod.

As Billions fans know, we saw these two at the end of last season grappling with a strained marriage due to Axe’s business decisions and personal choices.

To research the current filming timeline a bit, showrunner and co-creator Brian Koppelman shared a photo on Instagram of the first table read of Billions season three back on August 30.

On September 4, Page Six reported Billions cast and crew celebrated a season three kick-off event with a high-end whiskey tasting at Mario Batali’s Del Posto restaurant.  And on September 28 it was reported Damian filmed an intense confrontation with Maggie Siff, who plays Wendy Rhoades, the in-house performance coach at Axe Capital.

All seemed quiet in October. Then, on November 14, Koppelman tweeted they were almost halfway through shooting season three. Billions continues to shoot the highly anticipated third season with reports of a 2018 release.
