Damian Hosted a Billions Party – Nov 17, 2019

Cheers Mate

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | November 17, 2019

To celebrate the start of Billions season five filming, Damian hosted a party at his temporary New York residence for all his co-stars on Saturday, November 16, 2019. We waited to post this news in hopes of photos surfacing throughout the evening into the next day, but nothing so far. We sure hope there were many Dollar Bill shenanigans and Wags words of wisdom. Co-star Stephen Kunken, a self-proclaimed coffee sommelier who plays Compliance Officer Ari Spyros on Billions, did report that spirits were high from all the Michter’s spirits provided. Oh to be a fly on the wall!

Billions Filming in New Paltz and Looking for Extras – Nov 16, 2019

Party Scene at Victorian Castle Resort

by Saba Ali | Poughkeepsie Journal | November 16, 2019

A Showtime series starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis will be filming in New Paltz next month. And, the production is looking for locals to work as extras. Billions, which is filming its fifth season, will be shooting at New York’s historic spa resort Mohonk Mountain House on December 2-3. The Victorian castle resort is nestled in the Hudson Valley, only 90 miles north of New York City. Surrounded by 40,000 acres of pristine forest, the National Historic Landmark resort offers farm-to-table cuisine and an award-winning spa.

Billions was looking for an “old-old fashioned, but beautiful hotel” to shoot a party scene, said Hudson Valley Film Commission Director Laurent Rejto.  The casting company is seeking background extras to play “wealthy looking people” at a party” he said.

Grant Wilfley Casting is asking New Paltz locals, anyone within 20 miles, to apply. The call is for both SAG-AFTRA and non-union applicants. Extras will be paid and are not required to have previous acting experience.

For those interested, email BILLIONS@gwcnyc.com with your name, union status, phone number and availability for the two set dates.

Billions, which also stars Maggie Siff, Condola Rashad, Toby Leonard Moore and David Costabile, focuses on a U.S. attorney, played by Giamatti, as he pursues a hedge fund tycoon, played by Lewis.
