The "Billions" star says his wife — famed for "Harry Potter" and "Peaky Blinders" — was "utterly heroic in her illness."
You might be surprised to hear who else was considered for the all important roles of Carrie and Brody on TV's "Homeland."
Damian Lewis is in final negotiations to join the cast of Ocean’s Eight, the all-female spinoff of Ocean’s Eleven starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway. Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and Sarah Paulson are also on board with Gary Ross directing.
Ever since Daniel Craig eluded to not returning to the James Bond franchise, the question on everyone’s mind is who will step into the role. Maybe Damian Lewis?
This September, 'Band of Brothers' will celebrate its 15th anniversary. We look back as HBO Signature marathons the miniseries on Memorial Day.
In Billions–which hopes to comfort your loss of The Affair Sunday nights on Showtime–Damian Lewis stars as Bobby Axelrod, a hedge-fund billionaire who favors tight t-shirts as formal wear and likes Metallica cranked up to 11. Billions, created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and financial journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin, is set up to be a high-quality, insider look at insider trading, with the promise that we’ll see a greedy egomaniac brought low. For every macho-creep thing done by Axe—that’s what everyone who really knows Axelrod calls him—he’s also shown to be a frequently generous guy, loyal to old friends and an active participant in a solid marriage to Malin Akerman’s Lara.
We’re already very invested in Malin Akerman’s new Showtime series. The actress took over Yahoo TV’s Instagram account to give us a behind-the-scenes look at a day on the set of her new drama, Billions, and judging by the photos of the A-list cast and top-of-the-line crew, it appears to be a worthy investment.

In a separate snap, she warns Siff’s character to “keep her distance” from her man.
Created by the screenwriting team of Brian Koppelman and David Levien, and financial world journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin, Billions is the tale of two Wall Street titans on a head-to-head collision course. In one corner, there’s hedge fund wizard Bobby Axelrod (Homeland’s Damian Lewis), who is as popular with his employees and the public as he is envied by fellow would-be Masters of the Universe.
