Showtime Billions at TCA18 – Jan 6, 2018

Showtime Billions at TCA18 

by JaniaJania – Fan Fun with Damian Lewis – January 6, 2018

It’s been a long winter, but now that Billions has announced a return date of March 25 for Season 3, bluier skies may be ahead. On Saturday, showrunners and stars graced the stage for this year’s Television Critics Association winter press tour, where they dropped the first promo and got the buzz up and running for the new season.

The party got started in some fun Facebook live sessions. These short interviews were great at revealing actors’ insights into the characters they play as well as some fun behind the scenes bits.

First was Asia Kate Dillon. As we’ve seen, Taylor has been playing an increasing bigger role since first appearing on canvas. Last season, Axe promoted Taylor to CIO. It looks like this season their role may be even more significant.

Opening Night of The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? – April 5, 2017

Talk of the Town

by MailOnline Reporter | The Daily Mail |

Damian Lewis cosies up to glamorous wife Helen McCrory as they toast the opening night of The Goat or Who is Sylvia? on Wednesday.

His new role is a controversial one, with The Goat or Who is Sylvia? a renowned yet divisive play.

But Damian Lewis looked in great spirits after the press night of the new production as he attended the afterparty with wife Helen McCrory.

Beaming broadly, despite the mixed reception, the actor, 46, was suprisingly chirpy at the Villandry, the comfortable and casual grand cafe serving flavourful dishes with a Mediterranean influence.

Looking dapper for the afterparty, the Homeland star donned a fitted blue suit that he teamed with an open collar white shirt.

Meanwhile, Helen looked sensational in a floor length black gown with a sheer overlay that was embroidered with floral detailing.

The Vogue editor-in-chief was among the high net worth guests who turned out to toast the Wall Street-themed drama’s Feb. 19 return on Showtime. Knicks coach Phil Jackson and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft also made the rounds at the screening and party, appropriately held at the venue across the street from Wall Street’s iconic charging bull sculpture.

Showtime CEO David Nevins gave a shout-out to co-creators and showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien for their deft touch in delivering the “Billions” mix of sudsy drama and heady commentary on the 1% and their discontents. The show’s already large ensemble cast — anchored by Lewis, Paul GiamattiMaggie Siff and Malin Akerman — has been enhanced this year with such notable additions as Eric BogosianChristopher DenhamJames Wolk and Asia Kate Dillon. It took Koppelman and Levien a few minutes to call out all of the actors assembled for the screening — and to give a little good-natured ribbing to Giamatti for missing the event.
