  • This viewer’s review of The Escapist has this to say about Damian’s performance:

    The menacing Rizza (Damian Lewis)…rules the prison like a violent version of Howdy Doody…Lewis chilled me to the … bone. Rizza isn’t a yeller; he carries this quiet grim evil in him. With the clean, bright-red, close cut part hair, he looks like a clean-cut fella, and you wonder why everyone is supposed to be afraid of him. He quickly quells that, merely with a gesture or a quiet shushing. You realize why men would cut off their own finger without screaming just to avoid his temper.
