Gingersnap’s Dream Role for Damian Lewis

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.

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.

Dinner with Damian and Friends – Host Gingersnap

It’s time to play Dinner with Damian and Friends, a fantasy dinner party game with THE ultimate guest list!

There are six chairs arranged around the dinner table – one for you, one for Damian, and four surprise VIP guests of your choosing. If you could invite any non-fictional person, living or having passed, to your fantasy dinner party, whom would you choose and why?

Would you send invitations? If so, what would the invitations look like -formal, handmade, electronic or something else? What kind of conversation would be overheard at the dinner table and do you choose your guests accordingly? Where would the dinner be held – home, public restaurant, secluded private dining area, fancy ballroom or other? What are the place settings like? Is the table round, square, or rectangle? Where does each guest sit? Would you cook, cater, or hire a private chef?  What’s on the menu? Is the food served family style, buffet, or plated? Is there a theme? What is the dress code? What else do you imagine for your dinner party?
