Damian Films Scene With Kelly AuCoin on the Set of Billions

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.

‘Billions’ Cast And Their Athlete Comparisons

by Jeff Eisenband – The Post Game – May 8, 2017

“Billions” closed its second season this past Sunday, with a finale that — spoiler — left Chuck Rhoades Jr. feeling like a champion and Bobby Axelrod feeling unloved and less powerful. Season 3  of the Showtime series should feature Axelrod fighting his case while Rhoades attempts to run for governor of New York.

Although the season is over, that does not mean the conversation about “Billions” content is. We can always compare the cast to professional athletes, as we did below.

Bobby Axelrod: LeBron James

Axe is The Chosen One. He’s a hedge fund manager from a humble background who is ruthless in the business world. He takes every competitive advantage possible to be the best at what he does. James maneuvered to formulate the Big Three in Miami and then shifted the NBA balance of power to Cleveland, using the media to push his agenda (and desire to trade for Kevin Love). Both Axe and LeBron will have legacies tainted by their questionable tactics, but both insist they operated within the fair boundaries of their respective fields.
