Today on Twitter Damian announced information about his first ever single ‘Down on the Bowery,’ set for release on April 13, 2023. Damian also announced his debut album titled ‘Mission Creep’ is due out this summer, June 16, 2023. On Instagram he shared,
I’m delighted to announce the launch of a new creative venture…After leaving school as a teen and before acting took off for me, I took to the road with a guitar and went busking through continental Europe. During lockdown I had the time and opportunity to throw myself back into music and write a record that encapsulates my journey from busking to now.

Happy Birthday and All That Jazz

Cake Damian received on behalf of Fan Fun with Damian Lewis Team and the Fandom
Today Damian Lewis turns 52! Happy Birthday Damian, from the Fan Fun with Damian Lewis Team and all the fandom around the world! Every January the Team begins contemplating what we can do differently to celebrate Damian’s birthday in February and year after year we strive to be creative and unique. But I kid you not, last year when we organized the 51 Birthday Cakes we immediately knew what we would do this year. With our idea set in motion the goal remained the same: to bring a smile to Damian’s face. What better way to do that than to gift him 52 drinks! We planned, conspired and mobilized the fandom in the back channels of Twitter, Instagram or Facebook DM’s, as well as e-mail, to accomplish this secret project.
The task was simple – if Damian were a drink, what would he be? Fans shared their drink of choice and a virtual toast to the birthday boy and now we’re sharing it with all of you. The possibilities were endless, from cocktail to mocktail, hot or cold, traditional or creative, a national drink, a favorite wine, tea, or beverage, or a cocktail of their own creation inspired by a favorite film/theatre/television show or a character Damian played.

by Naman Ramachandran | Variety | October 21, 2022
Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis (“A Spy Among Friends,” “Billions”) will star in BAFTA-winning “Heartstopper” director Euros Lyn’s supernatural black comedy film “The Radleys.” Collider states, “Lyn will serve as the film’s director. The production marks a reunion between the filmmaker and his leading man as both Lyn and Lewis previously teamed up back in 2020 for the sports drama, Dream Horse.”
“The Radleys” is based on Matt Haig’s popular novel which follows the Radleys, a seemingly ordinary family who hold a dark secret – they are vampires. They are abstainers, vampires who choose not to drink blood despite their natural cravings, but the truth is revealed one day.
The film is based on a script developed by British Comedy Award winner Jo Brand (“Getting on”) and is written by Talitha Stevenson (“Late in Summer”). It will start shooting in the U.K. in May 2023. (UPDATE: Damian revealed shooting begins Monday, June 5, 2023).

Actor Damian Lewis has unveiled details of two new live dates and news of his debut solo album. The Homeland actor will play an intimate warm-up date at London’s Omeara on August 4, 2022 before making an appearance at Wilderness Festival in Oxford on August 7 from 8:35 p.m. until 9:15 p.m. He also announced that he will be releasing a debut album in 2023. Ahead of his live dates, Lewis said:
“I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing the songs I’ve written and been recording for my debut album. Be good to be back on stage, this time with a guitar in my hand.”
While predominately known for his acting work, Lewis has played classical guitar since he was 13. He busked through London in his early twenties and continued to make music as a hobby alongside his acting work in films such as Billions.
A statement added: “Meeting with various London-based musicians, including Giocomo Smith, Lewis wrote songs and found himself in the recording studio cutting the tracks that will be released on his as-yet-untitled debut album in the New Year.”

Damian played in the very first Soccer Aid back in 2006 and has gone on to make several subsequent appearances in the match, mainly as a central midfielder.
A source said: “Damian’s had an incredibly hard year after losing Helen but when Soccer Aid approached him about being part of the charity game, he wanted to help out. Damian is a massive Liverpool FC fan and can’t wait to get out on the pitch.”

Prices starting from £10 for children, £20 for adults and premium from £75. A family of four (2 adults, 2 children) can attend from £60.

Written By GingersnapComments Off on Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce Lead Cold War Limited Series ‘A Spy Among Friends’
A Ginger Biscuit Entertainment Production
by Peter White | Deadline | October 6, 2021
Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce are to lead the line of limited drama series A Spy Among Friends. Spectrum Originals and BritBox UK have ordered the adaptation of Ben Macintyre’s book to series. It comes over a year after Deadline first revealed the project, which then had Dominic West poised to star alongside Lewis.
It marks Lewis’ first gig since he exited Showtime’s Billions.
The series has started production in London this week and will also shoot in Romania. It will air in the U.S. via Spectrum’s On Demand platform and in the UK via streamer BritBox, a joint venture between the BBC and ITV, in the fall of 2022.
“I’m excited to be producing and starring in A Spy Among Friends. These fabulous scripts by Alex Cary take an up-close look at friendship – a friendship that was blinded by love, class, and membership to the right clubs, and ended in betrayal and the deaths of thousands,” said Lewis. “It’s been a fantastic creative process developing ‘Spy’ and now I can’t wait to start filming with Guy and all the other brilliant actors who’ve happily agreed to join us.”

Showtime Sets Season 5 Fall Premiere For Drama
by Alexandra Del Rosario | Deadline | June 10, 2021
Showtime’s Billions will return for its fifth season this fall.
The Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti-fronted legal drama will return Sunday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with five new episodes.
In the second half of season five, the presence of powerful billionaire Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) sends ripples through Axe Capital and gives Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) a potential new weapon in his fight against Bobby Axelrod (Lewis). Alliances form, get ripped apart and form anew, and everyone from Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon) to Wendy (Maggie Siff) gets roped into the conflict, which comes very close to destroying all they hold dear. The series also stars David Costabile, Condola Rashad, Kelly AuCoin and Jeffrey DeMunn. Jeanane Garafolo will guest star as Winslow, the hip owner of a legal cannabis corp.
Billions, even before its fifth season launches on Showtime, has been renewed for season six. The sixth season is set to premiere early next year.
