According to this tweet from the Billions official Twitter account today, Billions season 5 is set to return later this year! Tune in to see the cast return to our screens for the remaining five episodes of the season.
Today this sweet, young, professional actor posted pictures of him and Damian on Instagram giving us fandom the first clue about a possible up-and-coming voice work project Damian appears to be a part of. In addition to Damian and Hector Bateman, other actors possibly involved in the project are Allan Corduner, Sophia Pettit and Susannah Wise. Bateman wrote,
“Sometimes I have to pinch myself. A part comes along that I am honoured to play, particularly when it has a truth in history and based on events that should never ever be forgotten. I feel I have a duty to pay respect to those involved, to what happened and let others hear the story too. This was one of those. Truly blessed to be able to do it 💗 I also got to work with the most incredible team – MASSIVE talent with so much experience to learn from and tales to hear, I love listening to their advice. Their skill is so inspiring, seeing people like that in action is just wow! The crew was so motivating, sharing the story, making me want to do the best possible version of the character it’s a privilege to be. Thankful and blessed to be part of this. Thanks to the wonderful #DamianLewis @AllanCorduner @SophiaPettit #SusannahWise and all the others not in the pictures!”
No details about the project were provided other than it is rooted in historical truth about events that should never be forgotten, and we can’t wait to find out what this voice work will lead to! Perhaps a radio play? Looking forward to it as always!
Written By GingersnapComments Off on Tarantino Might Team with Netflix For a 4-Hr Cut of Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood – Aug 3, 2019
More McQueen Scene On Our Screen?
by Steffanie Tan | Pedestrian | August 3, 2019
Today in rumoursville, Quentin Tarantino might re-team with Netflix to brings fans an extended cut of Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood.
In an interview on the The Mutuals podcast, via Complex, OUATIH star Nicholas Hammondsaid there are talks of a “four-hour Netflix version”, which sounds pretty standard for Tarantino. The theatrical version clocks in at two hours and 45 minutes.
Netflix recently turned Tarantino’s 2015 film The Hateful Eight into a mini-series called The Hateful Eight: Extended Version, which is pretty much four episodes that are all almost an hour long each. Unfortunately, it appears it’s only available on the US version of the streaming service… for now.
According to Hammond, there were a lot of scenes Tarantino shot that couldn’t make it into the film because “there simply wasn’t enough room.”
“I think they’re talking about doing the same [as The Hateful Eight],” he continued. “There are some actors like Tim Roth, wonderful actors, who never even made it into the film. I mean, their entire roles got cut … Actors, who are really, really first class actors, and they went and shot their scenes and I’m sure they’re wonderful scenes but they’re not in the movie.”
“The Netflix version will be great too,” he added.

Guitars and Bond
by Ryan Parry and James Desborough | Daily Mail | November 1, 2018
Damian Lewis jokes to DailyMailTV that his guitar skills could help him nab the coveted role of 007 over top contenders Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Richard Madden. He believes he would make a great James Bond, telling DailyMailTV, “The name’s Bond… Busking Bond.”
His musical talent was revealed by close friend and Spooks star Matthew Macfadyen on the red carpet in Los Angeles at the Britannia Awards. The actor said of Lewis:
“There is no reason he should not be Bond. He is suave and sexy, he has a whiff of danger about him. He can ride motorbikes. He can play the guitar and he can dance. He is a red head and that is different and something unique, so I do not see any reason why not?”
Emmy and Golden Globe winner Lewis has made it clear he wants to be the man to replace Daniel Craig when he hangs up his Walther PPK in 2020. The 47-year-old told DailyMailTV he’d love to be considered for the role, and will ‘work hard’ to convince executive producers what their next 007 could look like.
We here at damian-lewis.com are partial to, “The name’s Bond…Ginge Bond.” But all that matters is for Damian to land the part! For more James Bond readings about Damian, visit our Fan Fun page.

Richard II or Bolingbroke: Potential Work Lined Up for Damian?
by Jake Coyle | SF Gate | February 2, 2018

L: Richard II of England – R: Damian Lewis
Veteran director James Ivory claims financiers think he’s crazy for attempting the Shakespeare adaptation of Richard II. Despite 50 years of critical acclaim and Oscar recognition, plus British actors Tom Hiddleston and Damian Lewis lined up to star in his production, financiers are refusing to part with their money. “They look at you like you’re crazy,” he said. “There is an assumption that there is no money to be made from such an investment. A Shakespeare film does not grab the hearts of financiers, I can tell you,” he says. “At the moment I’m very optimistic it will happen.”
For the past several years and after stalled efforts, Ivory still hopes to direct a film version of Shakespeare’s Richard II, with a script penned by Chris Terrio (“Argo,” ”Justice League”) and envisions feature roles for Tom Hiddleston as Richard II and Damian Lewis as Bolingbroke. Not all that unheard of since according to Damian’s filmography, he voiced Bolingbroke on a Richard II radio broadcast. In fact, James Ivory proposes Damian for the role of Bolingbroke in this March, 2018 video.
Both actors have extensive experience of Shakespeare. Hiddleston, who starred in the BBC’s award-winning The Night Manager is playing Hamlet this month in a Branagh stage production. Lewis appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company before television dramas such as Homeland, Wolf Hall and Billions.
