  • Very interesting (but not actually about Damian) news:

    » New Amsterdam – the new show starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays the (other) handsome hitman in The Baker – premiered in the US this week on the Fox network. Previews aired on March 4th and 6th and subsequent episodes will broadcast on Mondays at 9 pm (ET) starting March 10th. Click here to read more about it.

    » Many of the Harry Potter web sites were very interested in Damian Lewis’s recent appearance on ITV’s This Morning show both because Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore) is in the cast of The Baker and especially because Damian mentioned that his wife Helen McCrory begins filming her scenes for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince this week and that “she’s very excited and checking all the blogs” to read what other excited people have to say about the film!

  • A Life update from today’s Watch with Kristin:

    Charles in Red Lion, Pennsylvania: What’s happening to Life on NBC?

    I am over the moon to tell you it’s coming back. Yay! I just talked to Life boss Rand Ravich, and he tells me that shooting on season two begins in May and that the series should be back on the air sometime in the fall. As for what you can expect for Charlie, Dani and the rest, he tells me, “Season one was a journey into darkness, and I think in season two we’re going to start a little lighter and move back into the darkness as we go through.” Sweetheart, I’ll take my Damian Lewis in any light, thank you very much. Amen to that! ➡

  • The Escapist will be distributed in parts of Europe and Australia through distributors Indie Circle, Sandrew Metronome, and Australia’s Rialto.
