Damian hosted former Billions co-star, Paul Giamatti’s, special screening of his latest film The Holdovers on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at the Soho Hotel in London, England.

Damian took to the stage to share a few words in support of Paul and introduced him, as well as Holdovers co-star DaVine Joy Randolph to the audience at the UK event.

Hugh Bonneville was also spotted at the event, but the only person missing was fellow Billions co-star Kelly AuCoin (Dollar Bill Stern), who also had a small part in the film. Kelly recently took to Instagram to share of photo and him and Paul on the set of the film, telling his followers how much fun he had filming the movie.

The movie was released in the US on November 10, 2023 and is scheduled for UK release by Universal Pictures UK on January 19, 2024.

The film is about a curmudgeonly history instructor at a remote New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus over the holidays and babysit a handful of students, particularly a troublemaker, who has no place to go.

Damian Lewis and Children Attend ‘Wonka’ World Premiere

They’ve Got a Golden Ticket

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | November 28, 2023

Damian and his children, daughter Manon (who wore her mother’s dress) and son Gulliver (who wore his father’s famous mustard coat), attended the Warner Bros. Pictures World Premiere of Wonka at The Royal Festival Hall on Tuesday, November 28, 2023 in London, England. They walked the red carpet as part of the VIP arrivals to see Damian’s former Homeland co-star Timothée Chalamet, who plays Wonka in the musical fantasy film. See more photos of their red carpet arrivals in our Gallery here. The film follows a young Willy Wonka, presenting a prequel story to the Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It explores how the world’s greatest inventor, magician, and chocolate maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today.

Other stars in attendance were Calah Lane, Keegan-Michael Key, Paterson Joseph, Matt Lucas, Mathew Baynton, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, Jim Carter, Olivia Colman and Hugh Grant. For those who may not remember, Matt Lucas joined the FeedNHS initiative alongside Damian and Helen McCrory, a charity they started during the CoVid-19 pandemic. Matt released his Baked Potato Song to raise funds for the campaign. Everything’s connected!

Damian Lewis Attended 67 Pall Mall’s Steven Spurrier Celebration

Master of the Cork

Damian attended a party on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 67 Pall Mall to celebrate the life of wine expert Steven Spurrier, author of A Life of Wine. The 67 Pall Mall Group is a collection of private Members’ Clubs devoted to fine wine. Spurrier is the founder of the Académie du Vin, France’s first private wine school established in Paris in 1973. I can’t help but think of Damian’s Billions co-star Paul Giamatti with his memorable quote from the film Sideways, “If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving. I am NOT drinking any fucking Merlot!” 😉

by Naomi Clarke| Evening Standard | August 13, 2023

Damian Lewis has announced extra dates for the upcoming tour of his debut album, Mission Creep, due to popular demand. The 52-year-old British actor, best known for starring in TV dramas including Band Of Brothers and Homeland, is taking his new band on the road for the first time this autumn.

He has now extended the eight-show run by adding a further three shows in Basingstoke, Eastleigh and Milton Keynes in November.

Lewis said: “I can’t wait to get out on the road with my band this autumn for our first UK tour.

“We’ve played London, we’ve played New York, but now we’re getting serious and bringing the music to the great towns and cities of Gateshead, Nottingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff and many more.

“And, am I allowed to say this, ‘due to popular demand’, we’ve just added three more dates at the start of November so, all of you in Basingstoke, Eastleigh and Milton Keynes, get your glad rags on.”

The tour is due to kick off on September 9 in Nottingham before heading to Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, Brighton and Manchester – and then playing shows shows in Leeds and Gateshead in October.

The new dates will start on November 1 in Basingstoke and continue on to Milton Keynes and Eastleigh.

Damian Lewis Is Happy Playing Smaller Venues

The Band All Love Playing Live

by Claudia Cockerell | Evening Standard | June 27, 2023

Damian Lewis is accustomed to the strobe of paparazzi bulbs and crowds of fans clamouring for his attention on the red carpet. At its peak, his hit show Homeland was averaging around 7 million weekly viewers. But Lewis is the latest actor to pivot to music, and last week he played an intimate show to about 150 people at Rough Trade, the record store in East London.

The gig was the first since the release of his debut album, ‘Mission Creep’. His sound is folk-rock, with lots of guitar, hints of jazz, and a crooning voice. His influences range from Neil Young to J.J. Cale. What has it been like to go from gracing blockbuster TV shows to performing to a small crowd at an indie venue, I ask? “Fantastic,” he tells me. “The band all love playing live. But we can’t play bigger venues until we’ve proved ourselves in smaller venues”.

Evening Standard Speaks With Damian Lewis at Rough Trade East Gig

Always Remember to Twiddle Your Knob

by Ethan Croft | Evening Standard Diary | June 26, 2023

Damian Lewis doesn’t know if he is still an actor after making a departure into the music industry. We caught up with the Homeland star as he performed with a band to a crowd of around 150 friends and fans at Rough Trade in Brick Lane. He was playing tracks from Mission Creep, his debut album.

Lewis’s surprise career change certainly crept up on us. When we asked if he still considers acting to be his main job, he said “I don’t know. Watch this space. We’re not very good at changing lanes in this country. We don’t like people to change lanes. It’s just about whether you’re good or not. It’s as simple as that,” he said.
