  • Update on Life:

    » Earlier this week NBC, the American television network, invited the press and television industry professionals to a preview of programs planned for the fall season including the pilot for Life starring Damian Lewis. The clips/interviews for Life featured a comment from director David Semel (House) that “We’ve been trying to get him (Damian Lewis) to do television for years and finally got him to do this pilot.”

    » Although British actors have leading roles in several of the pilot programs, Damian Lewis was the only one who stayed in character and spoke with an American accent as he answered questions and talked about how much he likes his character, Billy Crews.
