“The great thing about Bond is how bad a spy he is, and how brilliant he is in recovering his position. Bond makes endless mistakes. That’s what’s fun about him, and then [he] has to do something extraordinary to recover himself.” – Damian Lewis
Well, these recent remarks Damian made about 007 at the Damian Lewis: Spy Wars special screening and Q&A at the British Museum make it inevitable to share this post one more time. ENJOY!
Rumor has had it since June 2015 that Damian Lewis is in “the running” to be the next James Bond. Given that Daniel Craig is coming back to play the world’s most famous secret agent again in the 25th official James Bond movie, the rumor does not hold much water at the moment. However, it is such a FUN rumor that we could not resist blogging about it earlier here and are still having fun with it! Besides, it is a true pleasure to see how Damian handles the 007 questions with some fresh humor every single time.
Rifling through some papers in Yevgeny Gromov’s lair revealed the list of Russian names Brody had heard earlier in the hub.
“Hey, Carrie, what do you think this is about? Any of these names look familiar to you? I heard them earlier when I first saw Gromov,” Brody asked. “And I heard them mention Saul too.”
“Saul? Yevgeny was talking about Saul?” Carrie momentarily lapsed into the confusion she was swimming in earlier. “This is a list of some of the most nefarious Russian operatives the NSA has in custody.” Her face opened up in realization. “It’s a prisoner exchange list. Saul somehow got the NSA to give up these guys in exchange for me.”
“It took him long enough,” Brody said. “What’d you say? You’ve been here 8 months?”
“Brody, you know this shit takes a lot longer in real life than it does in the movies.”
This is a Damian Lewis Appreciation post. But it is also a scientific post. As a social scientist, I make a claim that Damian Lewis is the kindest human being anyone could meet and then prove it with solid evidence. Would you like to join me?
The years Brody had spent in this place seemed like seconds compared to the endless anticipation of finally seeing Carrie for real and getting to talk to her. Time and space: Tiny monosyllabic grunts of words, meaningless when it came to affairs of the heart. He had to get to her today.
This time, Alex accompanied Brody to Yevgeny’s den. Leiming did his part in distracting the guards with a technical issue he cleverly inserted into the security system. It was time.
As they approached the den, they saw that Yevgeny was again alone with Carrie. No one was dancing this time, though. Carrie, again, looked stricken and confused. Yevgeny sat across from her, his eyes laser focused on her face, talking to her softly.
Brody crouched around a corner while Alex knocked on the door.
