Damian Lewis Chats with Gold Derby About Billions Season 2 – May 14, 2017

Damian Lewis Chats with Gold Derby About Billions Season 2

Zach LawsChris Beachum – May 15, 2017

“We knew that the second season was going to show consequences of their actions,” reveals Damian Lewis during our recent webcam chat (watch the exclusive video above) about the sophomore year of his show “Billions.” The Emmy winner stars in this Showtime series as Bobby Axelrod, a hedge-fund king whose dirty dealings catch the attention of U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti). The first season, Lewis believes, “essentially was watching these men, these alpha males, in their natural habitats,” but, “perhaps without too much cost.” This time around, however, “there would be moral repercussions.”

One of the things that makes the show so exciting, Lewis divulges, is that, “we can dovetail our fiction in and out of what’s going on around us.” He relates this to the recent election of billionaire Donald Trump, who, “brings into sharp focus the way in which the mega-rich live.” The London native adds, “what’s extraordinary about your current President is it seems as though he’s continuing to try to live his life while running the free world as he lived it before, but he’s finding I think that that’s quite difficult.”
