Billions Location Guide Season 2: New York City and Beyond

by Damianista – Fan Fun With Damian Lewis – May 22, 2017

Billions has a distinct way of showcasing New York as a character on the show.  From its landmarks and city parks to its distinct neighborhoods, the city that never sleeps appears as a cast member.  Billions is taking over New York, the BIG film studio that it is, and shooting all over the place, from Manhattan and Queens to Brooklyn and The Bronx, and from Long Island to the northern suburbs. So this Billions Season 2 Location Guide is a loving tribute to our most favorite place on earth and a heartfelt thank you to the Billions show creators for giving us a love letter to the city. Let’s start the tour.

Damian Lewis Chats with Gold Derby About Billions Season 2 – May 14, 2017

Damian Lewis Chats with Gold Derby About Billions Season 2

Zach LawsChris Beachum – May 15, 2017

“We knew that the second season was going to show consequences of their actions,” reveals Damian Lewis during our recent webcam chat (watch the exclusive video above) about the sophomore year of his show “Billions.” The Emmy winner stars in this Showtime series as Bobby Axelrod, a hedge-fund king whose dirty dealings catch the attention of U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti). The first season, Lewis believes, “essentially was watching these men, these alpha males, in their natural habitats,” but, “perhaps without too much cost.” This time around, however, “there would be moral repercussions.”

One of the things that makes the show so exciting, Lewis divulges, is that, “we can dovetail our fiction in and out of what’s going on around us.” He relates this to the recent election of billionaire Donald Trump, who, “brings into sharp focus the way in which the mega-rich live.” The London native adds, “what’s extraordinary about your current President is it seems as though he’s continuing to try to live his life while running the free world as he lived it before, but he’s finding I think that that’s quite difficult.”

Damian Lewis Talks Billions, The Goat Play and Obama on Andrew Marr Show – April 30, 2017

Damian Lewis talks Billions, The Goat Play and Obama on Andrew Marr Show

Damian Lewis excels at playing the most Alpha of males.

From Henry the Eighth in “Wolf Hall” to Brodie in “Homeland”, Lewis has often shown masculinity at its most bruising.

His return to the London stage, however, will leave quite a few of his fans with their jaws on the floor.

In Edward Albee’s absurdist play, “The Goat”, Lewis plays an architect who falls in love with a goat.

Andrew Marr spoke to him about the play.
