The Showtime series Billions has returned to Westchester County for filming. Today, the production filmed at Yonkers City Hall, 40 S. Broadway. Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano tweeted how great it was to catch a picture with Damian and fellow castmate Condola Rashad.

The series has been seen filming continuously in Yonkers which is fitting considering Damian Lewis’ character (Bobby Axelrod) grew up in the city. Scenes for prior seasons have also been filmed at Empire City Casino and Glenwood power station. In years past the show has also been seen filming at Rye Playland, in Orangeburg and White Plains.

Billions Filming in New Paltz and Looking for Extras – Nov 16, 2019

Party Scene at Victorian Castle Resort

by Saba Ali | Poughkeepsie Journal | November 16, 2019

A Showtime series starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis will be filming in New Paltz next month. And, the production is looking for locals to work as extras. Billions, which is filming its fifth season, will be shooting at New York’s historic spa resort Mohonk Mountain House on December 2-3. The Victorian castle resort is nestled in the Hudson Valley, only 90 miles north of New York City. Surrounded by 40,000 acres of pristine forest, the National Historic Landmark resort offers farm-to-table cuisine and an award-winning spa.

Billions was looking for an “old-old fashioned, but beautiful hotel” to shoot a party scene, said Hudson Valley Film Commission Director Laurent Rejto.  The casting company is seeking background extras to play “wealthy looking people” at a party” he said.

Grant Wilfley Casting is asking New Paltz locals, anyone within 20 miles, to apply. The call is for both SAG-AFTRA and non-union applicants. Extras will be paid and are not required to have previous acting experience.

For those interested, email BILLIONS@gwcnyc.com with your name, union status, phone number and availability for the two set dates.

Billions, which also stars Maggie Siff, Condola Rashad, Toby Leonard Moore and David Costabile, focuses on a U.S. attorney, played by Giamatti, as he pursues a hedge fund tycoon, played by Lewis.

Wilmington, Whiteface, Adirondacks…Oh My!

by Griffin Kelly | Adirondack Daily Enterprise / NNY360 | November 5, 2019

We now know the backstory of this Lake Placid photo that Damian tweeted out on Halloween. The Adirondacks is becoming quite the popular filming spot for cable television.

Last Tuesday and Wednesday, the Showtime series “Billions” filmed scenes at the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center and along Veterans Memorial Highway, which leads to the top of the mountain. This was the area they shot Season 5, Episode 1 where Wags and Axe took a motorcycle ride, seemingly on the Alaskan-Canadian Highway. In Season 5, Episode 2, “Billions” filmed the Mike Prince conference at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York.

The drama series stars Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis as U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades and billionaire hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod, respectively. About to enter its fifth season, “Billions” revolves around a Wall Street tycoon (Lewis) using his upper-echelon status and scheming ways to make immense profits, while a lawyer (Giamatti) tries to expose him for insider trading.

Interim Wilmington town Supervisor Roy Holzer said he is a fan of the show.
