Over time, they grow closer and try to heal their emotional wounds. To learn more about Damian’s role in the film, please visit here.

Years later the friends, now men, are on a hunting trip in the Maine woods when they are overtaken by a blizzard in which something much more ominous moves. Challenged to stop an alien force, the friends must first prevent the slaughter of innocent civilians by a military vigilante, then overcome a threat to the bond between them.

The Port Eliot Festival is an annual celebration of all things literary. And who should be in attendance? That’s right, Damian was spotted at the festival, which runs from July 26-29, 2018 in St. Germans, Cornwall.

According to their website, the festival is unlike any other, where the guests are welcomed for one magical weekend exploring the 6,000 acre Estate as their very own playground.

Whether you’re swimming in the estuary, picnicking under a 300 year old tree, rocking out at the Park Stage, canoeing on the river Tiddy, catching an intimate gig in the church, watching a cooking demo in the Big Kitchen (with Teri Hatcher), attending art workshops or dancing until the wee hours in the Boogie Round, people celebrate words, music, imagination, ideas, nature, food, fashion, flowers, laughter, exploration, fun, and all that is good in the world!

If you don’t fancy pitching your own tent, there are boutique camping options – from yurts to airstreams to full-size tipis. And when the sun goes down, the wonderful Dartmoor skies will take you on a stellar journey through the galaxy of their nightly stargazing sessions.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Update – July 24, 2017

First Look at Transforming Hollywood Boulevard Back to the 1960’s

by Chris Nicolas | LA Magazine | July 19, 2018

About one year from today, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will hit theatres. Firm plot details are mostly being kept under wraps right now, but is rumoured to be split into thematic chapters in the style of Pulp Fiction – the story will take place in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969 at the height of hippy Hollywood when the Charles Manson cult was wreaking havoc. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor Sharon Tate, of the famed Manson Family murders. Even though the movie will deal with Charles Manson and the famed Manson Family murders, it’s been made clear that particular subject matter won’t be the main focus.

Damian has been cast in a small role as Steve McQueen but in what capacity, we do not know. For starters, the inclusion of Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen in the film is connected. Both actors were clients of Jay Sebring, a world-renowned hair stylist who was a major fixture in 1960’s Los Angeles. Sebring was known for bringing European hair techniques to America and he established a name for himself when he popularized the feathering and layering of male hair, which was dubbed the “Sebring Look.” Sebring helped Bruce Lee find work teaching kung fu to Hollywood stars, including Steve McQueen and Roman Polanski.

L to R: McQueen, Tate, Polanski

History states McQueen is said to have been invited by Jay Sebring to Sharon Tate’s (Roman Polanski’s wife) house dinner party, but he no-showed. Preparing to attend the dinner, McQueen ran into a female friend and decided to spend the evening with her instead. That night in 1969 would become one of the most notorious in modern American history: Tate and Sebring, along with three of their friends, were brutally murdered by the followers of Charles Manson. Spending the evening with his female friend saved McQueen’s life. His close call with death spooked him so bad that he went into a state of paranoia. His then-wife Neile Adams recalled that, after the murders, McQueen “became more paranoid and wouldn’t let me go anywhere without a gun.”

The facade of Jay Sebring’s former salon on Fairfax Ave in West Hollywood is being rebuilt. Sebring (Hirsch) reinvented the men’s haircut and the very image of a hairstylist. He was young and handsome and dated gorgeous actresses, including at one time, Sharon Tate. In the late ’60s, he owned a salon on the corner of Melrose and Fairfax that attracted a long list of celebrity clients, including Steve McQueen and Bruce Lee.  At the time, barbers charged around $1.50 for a haircut, but a session with Sebring could cost up to $25.

As we wait for more information about Damian’s role as McQueen, let’s take a peek at additional set photos that are surfacing, as Los Angeles has been transported back in time. Store fronts, bus benches, theater marquee signs, billboards, neon signs and murals along Hollywood Boulevard and other West Hollywood thoroughfares have been gussied up to re-ceate the groovy, psychedelic era of the 60’s.

Television’s Bad New World – July 23, 2018

The Characters We Just Can’t Hate

by Scott Ellis | The Sydney Morning Herald | July 23, 2018

Not too long ago, things were simple. The forces of good on our screens stood tall, always did the right thing and battled the forces of evil wherever they found them. But then everything started to change. Just like in the real world, the criminals were sometimes shown to be ordinary people who simply made a bad decision, someone who found themselves breaking the law just to get by or someone pushed too far.

And the cops … well let’s just say they weren’t always who you’d want to call when trouble started.
It’s given us a crime genre rich in shades of grey, where anyone could be the hero and anyone the villain and a world where telling one from the other can be almost impossible. When the criminals are as cool as these, the line between what’s right and wrong becomes beautifully blurred.

BILLIONS
The story: In the world of ultra-high finance, the sharks who make fortunes have to be focused, relentless and thanks to the work of US attorneys like Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) squeaky clean in everything they do. Making money isn’t a crime, as long as they obey the law, but some just can’t resist the temptation to bend those laws and make a lot more.

Who’s the “good” baddie?: Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis), an ambitious fund manager who built his career from a working class beginning, survived the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and pays the children’s school fees of his colleagues who died that day. He’s talented, handsome and charming but also a white-collar criminal pulling in millions of dollars each year through insider trading and exploiting legal loopholes. Does that make him as bad as the murderers who walk free while Rhoades spends his time chasing a paper trail? That’s exactly the question Bobby wants everyone to ask themselves.
