Homeland’s Nicholas Brody is a thing of the past…

Former Homeland actor Damian Lewis is back on US TV, after marine-turned-terrorist-turned-CIA agent Nicholas Brody met a gruesome end back in 2013.
And we are already 100% on board with the series, mainly because Lewis’ new character has the best name ever: Bobby Axelrod. It’s the sort of name you want to say over and over. Bobby Axelrod, Bobby Axelrod, Bobby Axelrod.
First impressions are that Billions is a million miles away from Homeland. But in some ways, it’s not. For one, Lewis looks pretty similar. His trademark ginger hair is present, as is an American accent not dissimilar to Brody’s. There are some facial expressions that wouldn’t be out of place in the CIA thriller. This could easily be a Homeland still:
And remember that suspect trading pattern we mentioned earlier? Well, all three firms involved have links to… you guessed, it Mr Bobby Axelrod.
So government officials are suspicious of him, he may or may not be on the wrong side of the law, and that trademark smirk may or may not be hiding some big old porkie pies. See the similarities now?
