USA Production News reports that Showtime drama pilot Billions shoot is starting today in New York ! So, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod is coming to life! I really hope we can get some daily updates during filming!
So, what do we know so far?
Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti are headlining Billions. Damian Lewis takes on the role of Bobby “Axe Axelrod — “a brilliant, ambitious hedge-fund king” and Paul Giamatti is Chuck Rhoades, “a hard-charging, whip-smart U.S. Attorney.”
BBC2 held a preview screening for Wolf Hall on December 10 at SoHo’s Ham Yard Hotel, followed by a Q&A with the cast — including Mark Rylance, Damian Lewis, and Claire Foy — and the director Peter Kosminsky.
Here is a photo tweeted by Rajiv Nathwani, social media manager of BBC1 and BBC2, from the Q&A. Thank you for sharing!
David Stephenson, Sunday Express TV Editor, tweeted from the event: “Great to see @lewis_damian staying to chat with everyone after #Wolfhall. His head to head with #markrylance in series will be fascinating.”
Damian Lewis was Kirsty Young’s castaway on Desert Island Discs late last year. As he explained about how he chose his music for the program, Damian said: “It made me feel nostalgic. I think I am a nostalgic person, naturally, remembering people, happy moments in my life, and just good cheers.”
