The Physicality of Bobby Axelrod in
Billions

Damianista’s note: One of the many qualities Damian Lewis brought to the character of Bobby Axelrod in Billions is his incredible physicality. And while I originally shared this post a couple of years ago, I think it is a good time to revive it and celebrate Damian for creating one of the most iconic TV characters in the golden age of TV.

Okay rooting is not a strong enough word…I’ve sort of stalked Brian Koppleman about it, who is the co-creator of Billions:
