Recent internet frenzy about Damian Lewis smashing the “Next James Bond” bets makes it extremely tempting to share this blog post once again with you! Regardless of Damian becoming the next James Bond or not (does it really matter? We know he will do a brilliant job with whatever job comes his way), he starred in a short movie called Desire — and the protagonist Sidney Clark is, in fact, sort of a James Bond parody. So, why not enjoy it in celebration of this exciting rumor that has given us so much FUN this week? ENJOY!
Damian Lewis is a good friend of Jaguar. He first unveiled the Jaguar F-type roadster in 2013. Then he appeared in a short action film called Desire by Ridley Scott Associates and Jaguar in 2013 to promote the all-new 2014 F-type roadster.

His name is Sidney Clark.
His job is to deliver cars.
But in the desert, nothing is what it seems!
Here is Damian Lewis talking about the movie just before they started filming in the desert in Chile!
I love his description of Desire: “It’s kind of Coen Brothers-esque stroke David Lynch-type little piece of Americana…”
Damian also told The Hollywood Reporter that humor was one of the things that attracted him to the project and Sidney Clark, the character he plays in Desire.
“I thought he had a quirky voice and actually I might have pushed comedy a bit further because I found him as sort of a comedic character,” says Lewis. “At times there’s an oddly hapless quality to him, and I quite liked that. He wasn’t just a stereotypical monosyllabic hero. I think I went a little bit to Cary Grant, David Niven and these famous British movie stars of the past. There’s something very British about them which I tried to evoke.”
Now, are you READY to see the movie? Oh, yes, you are!
ENJOY your time with Sidney Clark 🙂
