Well, some dreams come true and we have been living the dream since we got word late April that Damian Lewis would play the iconic Hollywood actor Steve McQueen in Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood!

And I vividly remember giving a hard copy of that article to Damian at American Buffalo Stage Door in May 2015 and telling him that we believe he should play Steve McQueen!
