Trying to get through Damian’s IMDB and can’t find what you’re looking for? For those of you who are Netflix subscribers, you can stream the movie An Unfinished Life now and according to the Huffington Post, beginning August 1, 2018, you’ll be able to stream Dreamcatcher.
An Unfinished Life – Einar (Robert Redford), a recovering alcoholic rancher who lives with his loyal pal Mitch (Morgan Freeman), gets an unexpected visit from his daughter-in-law, Jean (Jennifer Lopez), and granddaughter, Griff (Becca Gardner). Einar holds a grudge against Jean because he feels she’s responsible for his son’s accidental death, but he reluctantly lets her stay at the farm when he learns that she’s trapped in a violent relationship with Gary (Damian Lewis). Over time, they grow closer and try to heal their emotional wounds. To learn more about Damian’s role in the film, please visit here.
Dreamcatcher– Four young friends perform a heroic act and are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return. Years later the friends, now men, are on a hunting trip in the Maine woods when they are overtaken by a blizzard in which something much more ominous moves. Challenged to stop an alien force, the friends must first prevent the slaughter of innocent civilians by a military vigilante, then overcome a threat to the bond between them.
TRIVIA – Damian starred with Morgan Freeman in both movies, An Unfinished Life and Dreamcatcher. Damian and his Dreamcatcher co-star Timothy Olyphant have both been cast in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, due out July of 2019. Damian’s Dreamcatcher co-star Donnie Wahlberg also starred with him in Band of Brothers.
Question: I hear Life won’t renewed for next season. Say it ain’t so, Mike! –Bev O.
Ausiello: It ain’t so! At least not yet anyway! Life co-star Donal Logue told us at the Monsters vs Aliens premiere that NBC probably won’t make a decision until May. And unlike you, the uncertainty isn’t keeping him up nights. “I am in a different position on this show than on shows I have done in the past where I was more the lead or title character,” he says. “On other shows I have done, I would be more in Damien’s position. He’s the one that is really feeling the concern. I feel free and open; it has been a great experience.” Logue adds that they’re shooting the season (or series?) finale as we speak. “It is really a super action-packed episode and it will answer a lot of questions. I think it is a very strong script and, so far, what we have shot looks great. Charlie confronts the deep dark parts in this episode. He is going to confront the conspiracy against him and it gets pretty intense.”
A message received from Sharon, Damian’s assistant in LA, confirms that March 26th is the last day of filming for Life – Season 2. Regarding the future of the show, Sharon said that “no one knows anything – I know that for sure! Tomorrow is the last day of filming….I’ll send more info when I get it!”
TV Guide Magazine has published their “2009 Sexiest Stars on TV” list and Sarah Shahi who plays Dani Reese on Life was named the “Sexiest Sidekick” with 45% of the viewer votes. Damian Lewis was a runner up in the “Sexiest Male Cop” category; click here for more information at zennish.net.
Wednesday from 9-10 p.m. ET, “Life” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 4.3 million viewers overall) built on its lead-in from the previous hour by 25 percent in 18-49 rating and 27 percent in total viewers, despite intense competition in the hour from Fox’s “American Idol,” ABC’s “Lost” and CBS’s “Criminal Minds.” It is worth noting that “Life” has been adding an average 23 percent in adults 18-49 when going from “live plus same day” to “live plus seven day” results, one of the biggest increases for any show on the major networks.
Thanks to Linda for the news that Season 2 of Life will premiere on RTL TV1 in Belgium on March 31st at 20:20.
Robert Fulford of The National Post published this article about the star of Life saying:
“Damian Lewis, who looks every inch a tough American, turns out to be part of the extensive British invasion of American TV. At school Lewis played the villainous Wackford Squeers in Dickens’s Nicholas Nickleby and … he was Laertes to Ralph Fiennes’ Hamlet. On TV he became Soames in the remake of The Forsyte Saga. In 2001 Steven Spielberg escorted him into American TV by casting him in Band of Brothers, HBO’s 10-part series about the American army fighting its way east from Normandy in 1944-45.”
On Sunday, March 29th BBC Radio 4’s “Classic Serial” broadcast of Something Fresh by PG Wodehouse will feature Helen McCrory as “Joan Valentine” and “Ioan Gruffudd” as Ashe Marson. The second part of this 2-part program will air on April 5th. This “Classic Serial” program will be available for online listening for 7 days after the original broadcast. Click here for more information. Thanks to Dotty for the news about this exciting new radio production!
Great news! Band of Brothers starring Damian Lewis will broadcast in the US on Spike TV in the 3rd quarter of 2009; click here for more information.

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.
