How would you like to spend Fright Night with Damian? If you subscribe to Netflix, then we have the answer and the link to get you there. Dreamcatcher is the 2003 film adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. Four young friends who perform a heroic act are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return-a telepathic gift. Years later the friends, now men, are on their annual hunting trip in the Maine woods when they are overtaken by a blizzard in which something much more ominous moves, and they must confront an unparalleled horror together. Damian, who plays history professor Gary “Jonesy” Jones in the film, talks about the plot (and his American accent) in this red carpet interview:

Trying to get through Damian’s IMDB and can’t find what you’re looking for? For those of you who are Netflix subscribers, you can stream the movie An Unfinished Life now and according to the Huffington Post, beginning August 1, 2018, you’ll be able to stream Dreamcatcher.
An Unfinished Life – Einar (Robert Redford), a recovering alcoholic rancher who lives with his loyal pal Mitch (Morgan Freeman), gets an unexpected visit from his daughter-in-law, Jean (Jennifer Lopez), and granddaughter, Griff (Becca Gardner). Einar holds a grudge against Jean because he feels she’s responsible for his son’s accidental death, but he reluctantly lets her stay at the farm when he learns that she’s trapped in a violent relationship with Gary (Damian Lewis). Over time, they grow closer and try to heal their emotional wounds. To learn more about Damian’s role in the film, please visit here.

Damian Lewis at The Dorchester
by Natalie Theo | Factory Magazine | Fall Issue, 2005
Damian Lewis really wants to be Widow Twanky. Thankfully Factory has asked him to camp it up as an all-dancing James Bond hero for its shoot at the Dorchester Hotel’s London ballroom. “I went through a lot of pantomime when I was young – I mostly wanted to be Widow Twanky”. Well, as I say, thank God we are more 007 today. You see I am blushingly helping Damian Lewis into a pair of elegant black Ralph Lauren trousers, shirt and diamond studded De Beers cufflinks. We are tucked away in the dark refines of the Dorchester ballroom’s coat check cubicle.
The men’s loos are unavailable for trouser tucking. Better to be tucking him into a Ralph Lauren number rather than a figure moulding pair of panto tights. Lewis has gamely agreed to swirl six dashing young actresses dripping in De Beers diamonds and slinking about in Ralph Lauren eveningwear for the day with his very own barman, sent along on orders from Dublin courtesy of Jameson Irish Whiskey, to see him through. His lead role as Major Richard Winters in HBO’s Band of Brothers, produced and part directed by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, precedes a slew of feature films due for September and early 2006 releases: Lasse Hallstrom’s An Unfinished Life; Brides produced by Martin Scorsese; Lodge Kerrigan’s Keane; Phillip Haas’ The Situation; and Martha Fiennes Chromophobia. So I can’t quite believe Widow Twanky is the be all and end all of the ultimate hero situation.
