Damianista | damian-lewis.com | April 29, 2022

Damian attended the opening party at the new members-only The House of KOKO in London on Thursday evening, April 28, 2022. The party took place ahead of the iconic KOKO theatre re-opening this weekend and ahead of that night’s opening gig – the first since a fire gutted the iconic Camden venue in 2020. And may I say we love our guy rocking his double denim ensemble! Sienna Miller, artist Isaac Benigson and model Charlotte Smurfit also attended the launch party.

10 Best Spy/Espionage TV Shows Ranked

Best of the Best: Intriguing Stories With Complicated Characters

by Tom Steel | CBR | April 3, 2022

Genres within television and film have evolved over the years, with several being combined to form new genres and sub-genres. One such instance has seen spy and espionage television and films – which incorporate elements of thrillers, dramas, and more action-oriented fare. Spy and espionage shows are a great way to become engrossed in intriguing stories full of complicated characters. More often than not, spy shows on TV emphasize the action element – comparable to the likes of James Bond. More rarely, however, shows will lean more towards the espionage side of things, in which spies and agents are sent deep into the heart of an intriguing plot.

1 Out of 10
Homeland Is The Best Espionage Thriller Series With Consistently Thrilling Seasons

While there are spy shows that opt to integrate comedy to help complement the espionage and action, Homeland thrives on its thriller tropes and psychological warfare, making it one of the most intense and engrossing spy/espionage shows out there. Spanning eight seasons from 2011 to 2020, Homeland focuses on Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes, and her work with the CIA.

Her investigations into Damian Lewis’s Nicholas Brody and the pair’s interactions, help to make the first few seasons particularly captivating. The later seasons even manage to move past the dynamic that drove the early episodes of the series and arguably get even better – as opposed to getting diminishing returns like with many long-running shows.

What Kelly AuCoin Had to Say About Working With Damian Lewis on Set of Billions

 There’s Only One Damian

by Carissa Pavlica | TV Fanatic | March 28, 2022

You may know Kelly AuCoin from his role on Billions, but he’s also going to be playing a detective on Hulu’s The Girl From Plainville. We had a chance to catch up with him by phone to talk about it. And yes, we touch on Billions, too. “…with Billions, I think it’s super fun to watch people misbehave. And what I love about Billions is that people from all over the political spectrum like the show. My lefty friends, a lot of them love it. And my friends who are more on the right love it.”

“I do find it interesting when people on the street talk about why they love the show and my character. I start to realize some people find it aspirational. They think of Dollar Bill as an aspirational character. And I’m like, ‘You know he’s a criminal, right?’ “He’s not a good person, per se, but I think the character…it’s such a well-written show. And I think that the actors play the hell out of their characters. And I think the chemistry between the characters has been so strong and just grown stronger with each season. I think that translates.”

“We have such a fun time. As I’ve said to people many times, the amount of misbehavior exhibited by these characters is an almost inverse proportion to the quality of human beings that they are and the sweetness that they actually exhibit and give back and forth to each other on set and in real life. We’re all friends. We all have a great time. And Stephen Kunken, Ari Spyros, and I, Dollar Bill, are great friends, and we’ll be in each other’s faces and yelling at each other and shoving, and then we’re just giggling afterward. I think that kind of chemistry translates to the screen.
