Acclaimed British actress Helen McCrory (a.k.a. Mrs. Damian Lewis!) made a surprise guest appearance last night on episode 2.15 of Life titled “I Heart Mom” and she was fabulous and she looked great! Her character, security expert Amanda Puryer, is scheduled to appear again in “Shelf Life” on March 11th. ➡
The New York Daily News picked “I Heart Mom” as “The Best of Wedneday Night’s TV” and called the show a “fabulous drama.”
It was also great to see veteran actress Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Edna Garrett on “Facts of Life”) making a guest appearance on last night’s episode of Life; she was hilarious! 😆
Spoilers! NBC Universal has released this synopsis of Life episode 2.18 “3 Women” which will air in the US on NBC on March 18, 2009:
SPECIAL GUEST STAR GABRIELLE UNION JOINS THE CAST OF “LIFE” AS DETECTIVE JANE SEEVER — With Reese (Sarah Shahi) still on loan to the FBI, Crews (Damian Lewis) is assigned a new partner, Detective Jane Seever (Gabrielle Union). Seever, the exact opposite of Reese, is an over achiever with a 15-year plan to one day become mayor. Crews and Seever get right to work on the murder of a court reporter who was clubbed to death with a three iron. The reporter turns up dead after becoming pen pals with a convict who was imprisoned for a jewelry heist. Sarah Shahi, Donal Logue and Adam Arkin also star.

Congratulations to actress Jennifer Siebel (who plays the ex-wife of Charlie Crews on Life) and her husband, Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco. The couple recently announced that they are expecting their first child in September.
Rob Hunter’s review of The Escapist for Film School Rejects includes these comments about the film:
“…First-time director Rupert Wyatt also co-wrote the film with Daniel Hardy, and he shows an interesting eye for both the bleak and dreamlike visuals as well as the alternating narrative threads…Wyatt knows exactly when to switch to the action of the escape itself. Aside from the timing, Wyatt’s edits are also stylistically impressive as locations and events in one thread trigger the move into the other fairly seamlessly…
(Brian Cox) owns the film and his performance alone makes it worth viewing. The remainder of the cast all serve to support him and most do so quite well. One of the standouts is a bulked-up, angry, and barely recognizable (Joseph) Fiennes, and another is Damian Lewis (“Life”) as the menancing Rizza, the most powerful and dangerous convict inside. Both men play hard-asses but do so with completely different styles…The Escapist was released last week on R2 DVD. It’s scheduled for a limited US release from IFC on April 3rd.”

Damian Lewis at The Dorchester
by Natalie Theo | Factory Magazine | Fall Issue, 2005
Damian Lewis really wants to be Widow Twanky. Thankfully Factory has asked him to camp it up as an all-dancing James Bond hero for its shoot at the Dorchester Hotel’s London ballroom. “I went through a lot of pantomime when I was young – I mostly wanted to be Widow Twanky”. Well, as I say, thank God we are more 007 today. You see I am blushingly helping Damian Lewis into a pair of elegant black Ralph Lauren trousers, shirt and diamond studded De Beers cufflinks. We are tucked away in the dark refines of the Dorchester ballroom’s coat check cubicle.
The men’s loos are unavailable for trouser tucking. Better to be tucking him into a Ralph Lauren number rather than a figure moulding pair of panto tights. Lewis has gamely agreed to swirl six dashing young actresses dripping in De Beers diamonds and slinking about in Ralph Lauren eveningwear for the day with his very own barman, sent along on orders from Dublin courtesy of Jameson Irish Whiskey, to see him through. His lead role as Major Richard Winters in HBO’s Band of Brothers, produced and part directed by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, precedes a slew of feature films due for September and early 2006 releases: Lasse Hallstrom’s An Unfinished Life; Brides produced by Martin Scorsese; Lodge Kerrigan’s Keane; Phillip Haas’ The Situation; and Martha Fiennes Chromophobia. So I can’t quite believe Widow Twanky is the be all and end all of the ultimate hero situation.

Damian, an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust organization, performed his famous Elvis Presley impersonation on stage during The Berkeley Square Ball at Berkeley Square on July 19, 2005 in London, England. The fundraising party in aid of The Prince’s Trust has not taken place in several years, but this year was hosted by Vince Power as 700 guests tuck into a dinner prepared by chef Jamie Oliver.
