A Real-life Football Star: Annie’s Dream Role for Damian Lewis

Today’s dream role for Damian Lewis comes from Annie, a big Damian Lewis and an even bigger Liverpool FC fan!

Annie has been a massive LFC supporter since 1977 – she remembers crying behind her mom’s sofa when Manchester United beat Liverpool in the FA Cup final! She believes LFC supporters are the best with the best songs and have some of the most memorable matches in football history! Her absolute hero is Steven Gerrard whom she was so lucky to see him play so many times but unfortunately never met in person… yet!

Well, Annie, I am sure Damian shares your sentiments both about Liverpool FC and Stevie Gerrard!

Fan Fun Girls Say Good Bye to Bobby Axelrod

As Billions Season 6 is coming  to Showtime in a week, I believe even those who live under a rock know that Damian Lewis has left the show. This departure marks the end of an era not only for Billions but also for this blog.

Fan Fun with Damian Lewis has had an organic relationship with Billions. I launched the blog at the same time they started filming the series pilot and Damian found out about the blog the day they filmed the iconic ‘Fuck You Money’ scene.  Continue reading “Fan Fun Girls Say Good Bye to Bobby Axelrod”

Fan Fun Movie of the Month: An Unfinished Life

Today we revisit Damian Lewis in An Unfinished Life, a movie directed by Lasse Hallström based on a novel by Mark Spragg who also wrote the script with his wife Virginia Korus Spragg. Damian stars in the movie along with Jennifer Lopez as well as two giants of the big screen, Robert Redford and Morgan Freeman.

Honestly, I was surprised finding out An Unfinished Life was a Lasse Hallström movie when I watched it last year. “Why?” you may ask. Well, because even though I was not a Damian Lewis fan back in 2005, I certainly was a fan of Hallström’s cinema, I still am, and I would watch the movie just because Hallström had his name on it.

For those of you that do not know him, Lasse Hallström is a Swedish film director that first came to fame having made all ABBA music videos. Then he got into film directing and made some of my favorite films from the late 1990s and early 2000s including The Cider House Rules and Chocolat. You may have seen some of his other films including The Shipping News, Something to Talk About (I had a short-lived crush on Dennis Quaid, too, in college!) and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape with a ridiculously talented young actor called Leonardo Di Caprio! So, how come, HOW COME, I did not hear of An Unfinished Life when it hit movie theaters? Continue reading “Fan Fun Movie of the Month: An Unfinished Life”

A few years ago, I was reading an interview with Damian Lewis in which he was telling Esquire about… well, his taxes 🙂

“I’m behind with my taxes,” he groans.

He spent the morning going through his receipts and says the only love the taxman ever gives him are “residuals cheques for 79p for the selling of Poirot to Paraguay.”

And I go… WHAT? Poirot? My beloved Hercule Poirot?

Did Damian Lewis play in Agatha Christie’s Poirot? Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis in Agatha Christie’s Poirot”
