‘Billions’ Makes the Best TV Box Set List for Christmas – Dec 8, 2017

‘Billions’ Makes the Best TV Box Set List for Christmas

by James Jackson – The Times – December 8, 2017

Billions gets four out of five stars and is hand picked for one of the best television box sets of the year on the “Gift Guide: The Best TV Box Sets for Christmas.”  Only five made the list. Billions joins the likes of Blue Planet II, Dissent & Disruption: The Complete Alan Clarke at the BBC, The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, and Victoria Series 1 and 2.

The Times writes, “For the alpha male in your life, this US drama (shown in Britain on Sky Atlantic) is a high-wire gift: it’s a high-finance romp that he will find wildly addictive; just hope that it doesn’t encourage his worse instincts. Depicting the strategic, but hate-fueled game of chess between a crooked billionaire hedge-fund boss played by Damian Lewis and the District Attorney on his case played by Paul Giamatti, it looks sleekly wonderful, leads you in unexpected directions and has much pumped-up macho dialogue. It’s great, power-mad fun.”

£8.99 season one and £19.99 season two

Vote for Damian Lewis – Who’s the Best Drama Actor Emmy Winner This Decade? – Oct 4, 2017

Who’s the Best Drama Actor Emmy Winner This Decade? [Poll]

By Kevin Jacobsen – Gold Derby – October 4, 2017

The Best Drama Actor category at the Emmys has gone to many deserving men since 2010. After a decade of multiple victories for actors like James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”), James Spader (“The Practice”/”Boston Legal”) and Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), the 2010s have thus far featured refreshing turnover, with only one repeat win in eight years. The decade began with Cranston accepting his third consecutive trophy for playing Walter White in “Breaking Bad.” That streak was broken when Kyle Chandler picked up his Emmy for playing Coach Eric Taylor in the final season of “Friday Night Lights.”

“Homeland” fever struck in 2012 as Damian Lewis won his Emmy for playing corrupt soldier Nicholas Brody on the Showtime drama. 2013 was a shocking year with buzz split between Lewis and splashy newcomer Kevin Spacey for the first season of “House of Cards.” The award went to neither — instead, Jeff Daniels surprised for his role as Will McAvoy in “The Newsroom.” 2014 was another competitive year, with Cranston taking on the men of “True Detective,” but Cranston pulled off one last victory for his iconic performance. After seven years of being the bridesmaid, Jon Hamm finally won in 2015 for his equally iconic role as Don Draper in “Mad Men.” In 2016, Rami Malek won for playing troubled hacker Elliot Anderson in “Mr. Robot.” Sterling K. Brown then prevailed this year for his emotional performance as Randall Pearson in “This Is Us.”

Who ZOO You Think You Are?

Damian and Helen Hilariously Attempt to go Incognito in Eye-Catching Animal Disguises at Surrey Theme Park

by Lisa McLoughlin  | The Daily Mail | September 10, 2017

Looking (butter)fly!  Damian Lewis looked worlds away from his cutting character as he stepped out on Sunday wearing an eye-catching butterfly mask alongside his Peaky Blinders actress wife Helen McCrory while at Chessington World of Adventures.

He’s known for his calculating role as the ambitious hedge-fund king Bobby Axelrod on Sky Atlantic’s Billions.

The dynamic acting duo looked in jovial spirits as they wandered around the Surrey-based theme park wearing hilarious masks while hand-in-hand.

Casually-clad for their afternoon of fun, Helen complemented her navy joggers and red cherry-printed jumper with an attention-grabbing hot pink wig.

Wrapping up while at the adventure park, she donned a long navy duster coat over her frame, yet her multi-coloured oversized mask took centre stage.

While his long-term love went all out, Damian opted to go for a delicate pale pink mask with gold accents which offset his grey and black hued ensemble.

Opening Night of The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? – April 5, 2017

Talk of the Town

by MailOnline Reporter | The Daily Mail |

Damian Lewis cosies up to glamorous wife Helen McCrory as they toast the opening night of The Goat or Who is Sylvia? on Wednesday.

His new role is a controversial one, with The Goat or Who is Sylvia? a renowned yet divisive play.

But Damian Lewis looked in great spirits after the press night of the new production as he attended the afterparty with wife Helen McCrory.

Beaming broadly, despite the mixed reception, the actor, 46, was suprisingly chirpy at the Villandry, the comfortable and casual grand cafe serving flavourful dishes with a Mediterranean influence.

Looking dapper for the afterparty, the Homeland star donned a fitted blue suit that he teamed with an open collar white shirt.

Meanwhile, Helen looked sensational in a floor length black gown with a sheer overlay that was embroidered with floral detailing.
