The Double Life of Damian Lewis, Times/Sunday Times, September 22, 2012

Original article in the Times

From brooding Marine in Homeland to North London family man – Damian Lewis tells Robert Crampton about his double life

Good news for Homeland fans. The second season starts soon. Even better, Damian Lewis, when I ask him about the likelihood of a third season, says, “I think this show will run five or six years unless they screw it up. As long as we can keep it credible… I don’t see why we can’t just keep going on and on and on.” For those of us – 2.7 million of us, to be precise, very good for Sunday night Channel 4, and including every critic in the country, all of them in rapture – who spent Monday mornings this spring debating the twists and turns of the previous night’s episode, the promise, from the show’s co-star, no less, of lots more to come is thrilling indeed.

  • Don’t miss Life episode 2.14 titled “Mirror Ball” which will air in the US this Wednesday, February 11, 2009 on NBC at 9pm (ET).

  • The region 2 DVD for The Escapist (featuring Damian Lewis) was released for sale in the UK today and some lucky fans have already received their copies.

  • Mark Kermode of The Observer offered these comments about The Escapist:

    “There’s no such thing as a bad Brian Cox movie and The Escapist (2008, 15, Vertigo £15.65) proves no exception. A stripped-down, prison-break thriller with echoes of The Shawshank Redemption, Rupert Wyatt’s lean, mean B-movie blends satirical spiritualism with tough-as-nuts action. Apparently, Cox landed the lead role after telling Wyatt he was fed up with playing cameos, so he’s centre stage where he belongs.”

  • This 4.5 Stale Popcorn review describes The Escapist as a:

    “…little slice of near-perfection. Two shades shy of a masterpiece…Wyatt has made a movie of absolute stellar visual originality… The direction, the sense of assurance in its set-pieces and the performances all make this very much worthy of your time. The title cards and music create a confident, fully realised tone that puts you in the exact mindset you need to be in for the film and Brian Cox leads the charge with a performance that just confirms him once and for all as one of the most consistent, great actors working in the industry right now…”
