At a corner table in the dining room of Marea, a restaurant on Central Park South, the conversation was smooth but disputatious. Three men in suits were drinking red wine and eating pasta that cost thirty-four dollars a serving. One of them was a hedge-fund manager, a famous short seller. Another was the financial journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin. The third man, in from London, was the actor Damian Lewis.
Sorkin had made the introduction. The hedge-fund manager and Lewis were doing most of the talking. “Does your business have a societal benefit?” Lewis asked. He wanted to know what made a hedge-fund manager more than “a paper shuffler.”
The hedge-fund manager said that he and his peers basically function as market-based regulators—that they have a financial incentive to expose wrongdoing. Sorkin had set up other audiences for Lewis with financial machers. One of them urged Lewis to consider an underperforming company with entrenched management or a sclerotic board: an activist investor, even if he came in and cut things and fired people—well, that’s capitalism.

It was a far cry from the set of smash hit drama Homeland for actor Damian Lewis when he popped into a Tyneside library. The English actor, known to millions of viewers as Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody, visited the city this week to delve into Newcastle University’s Robinson Library archives on Washington-born explorer Gertrude Bell.
Having previously starred in Band of Brothers, since 2011 he’s been playing Brody, a turned prisoner-of-war in the American hit show.
Seen here with library archivist Geraldine Hunwick, the actor was researching his new role as Charles Doughty-Wylie in the new film Queen of the Desert.
