A Misunderstood Genius: Gingersnap’s Dream Role for Damian Lewis

About this project: I started thinking what meaty role I’d like to see Damian play when I shared my idea with Damianista. She said go for it. I wrote my piece and it sat collecting dust waiting for others to think of their dream role. I had all but given up when Damianista wrote her dream role, and it snowballed from there. Now we have over 20 dream roles thanks to the fans! So, let’s get this ball rolling. We’re going to start off the dream role series with mine and publish everyone’s thereafter. Here we go!

Chameleon. That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think of Damian’s acting abilities. He can play anything, and brilliantly so! Over the years many have proposed ideal roles they could see him portray – you’ve heard the rumors before – Damian Lewis as Bond, Ginger Bond. That would be dreamy even though Damian is so over it. He’s into real-life spies now, as seen on Damian Lewis: Spy Wars and the newly announced project in the works, A Spy Among Friends. For now we’ll have to live with Damian as Agent Double 0-0 in Phineas and Ferb, here.

I’ve also thought Damian could pull off the most maniacal villain in the Marvel or DC Comics universe and the public agrees as evidenced by their dream casting social media posts. One that comes up repeatedly is Norman Osborn (Green Goblin) from the Spiderman series. And for a while now this Blog has mused about Damian playing the iconic actor Steve McQueen. While Damian played McQueen in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, it was such a small role that it left me craving for an entire biopic. For now, we’ll have to view him as McQueen here.
