Damian Lewis reads at Oxford Literary Festival, April 7, 2011
Trailer Addict has a nice little video interview with Damian Lewis. Click below to view it or here to download it from the site. For more interviews from the cast and filmmakers, visit Trailer Addict’s Your Highness page. The film will hit US theatres April 8th. For more release dates, see the IMDb page.
MSN.com has the second red-band trailer of Your Highness. Lots more nudity and silliness. There’s only a very brief glimpse of Damian we hadn’t already seen in other trailers.
If you’re interested in downloading the HD trailer click here. It’s in mkv format which should play on VLC PLayer.
Unfortunately, I had no luck converting it to mp4 or any another format. If you have any idea how – please drop me a note! 😀 Update: Click here for the trailer in mp4 format.

Damian has provided the narration for a series of animations on the nature of human learning. Born to Learn, based on the book Overschooled but Undereducated, is the first animation in a fun, thought-provoking series aimed to provide easy-access and illustrate ground-breaking new discoveries about how humans learn. The series exposes the current flaws in our educational system and highlights better ways by which children can learn.
This second video in the Born to Learn series, Class Reunion, unpacks very neatly the significance of Confucius’s explanation that essentially it is only when you take the responsibility of having to do something for yourself that you really start to learn.
Showtime’s drama pilot Homeland has assembled a pretty solid cast. Former Life star Damian Lewis has been tapped to star opposite Claire Danes in the pilot from 24 executive producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa. Lewis will play the male lead in the project, which centers on Marine Sergeant Scott Brody (Lewis), who returns home after spending eight years as a prisoner of war in Baghdad, and Carrie Anderson (Claire Danes), a driven CIA officer who suspects he might be plotting an attack on America. Scott, who was discovered during a U.S. attack on an enemy base, was brought to the U.S. with much fanfare and is happy to be home with his family, wife Jessica (Laura Fraser), and two kids, but still carries with him the trauma of his imprisonment and torture. Lewis, a British screen and stage actor, is best known in the U.S. for his roles in the NBC quirky drama Life and HBO’s Emmy-winning World War II mini-series Band of Brothers.
Also cast in Homeland is another British actor, David Harewood (Blood Diamond). He will play David Estes, the the youngest Deputy Director of Intelligence in CIA history, decisive, political, professional, but ultimately self-serving who is frequently exasperated by Carrie’s obsessive determination to follow up any lead, no matter how small or politically inconvenient. Production on the pilot, whose cast also includes Mandy Patinkin, is slated to begin Jan. 10 in Charlotte, N.C.

The green band trailer for Your Highness was released today and you can check out the HD versions at iTunes Movie Trailers. Some of the naughty bits that were included in the red-band trailer have been removed so some of Damian’s scenes are missing. If you’d like to download them, try these links I’ve posted at Mediafire: 480p, 720p, 1080p. You’ll find a download of the red band trailer here on the site.
