Well, boys and girls, some of us have been waiting for this for thirty years.
Yes – THIRTY YEARS!
And, after three long decades, Liverpool has once again won the English Premier League Title! I understand that while it may not be the event of the year for many of you, I am not uncertain it is a huge highlight for the man to whom this blog is dedicated 😀
30 years of hurt over. Tears of joy.#YNWA@LFC Thank you Chelsea for making Man City “slip up”……
In celebration of Liverpool becoming the English Premiere League Champions, our Throwback Thursday today takes us to Will, a football movie Damian made in 2011, that is about Liverpool playing in the 2005 Champions League Final Match in Istanbul, Turkey, yes, my native country! As the great Charlie Crews would say “everything is connected” 😀
Damian Lewis is 49 years old today! Happy Birthday!
Damian is my fellow Aquarian. And if you believe in horoscopes — I cannot say I do but I enjoy reading them — then 2020 will be a GOOD year for us 😀But, honestly, when it comes to Damian’s year, we don’t really need to read the horoscope, the tea leaves, or having grown up in Turkey, the coffee cup for him 🙂
Firstly, we are looking forward to the premiere of Billions Season 5 on Showtime! The series has already become the premium network’s second biggest show ever after Homeland and guess what — there is only one lead actor that has played in Showtime’s two biggest shows! 😀 Damian Lewis:Spy Wars, Damian’s first experience in factual TV, is coming to the Smithsonian Channel, a joint venture between Showtime and the Smithsonian Institute, sometime this year. And the two films Damian completed in 2018 and 2019, namely Run This Town and Dream Horse, are coming to a theater near us in March and in May, respectively. So we can only imagine the possibilities 2020 may bring…
Happy Birthday, Damian! You make 49 look so damn good and we have decided to celebrate your day with 49 Fun Facts about you!
When asked about what he watches on TV at Times Talks London back in 2014, Damian first talks about the usual suspects including Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Game of Thrones and then adds that on top of his recording list is ALWAYS Match of the Day. And many thanks go to Bookworm for reminding me of a Homeland Fun Fact about Match of the Day! Remember the scene in Homeland Pilot where Carrie notices Brody’s almost jazz-like finger tapping…
…it turns out Damian is finger tapping to Match of the Day tune there. You can hear the story from the man himself on the Commentary for the Pilot on Homeland Season 1 DVD and even hear Damian humming the tune for Claire!
Well, boys and girls, Liverpool is going to UEFA Champions League Final! And while it may not be the event of the year for many of you, I am not uncertain it is a highlight for the man to whom this blog is dedicated 😀
Well, boys and girls, the UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid is only 2 days away. And while it may not be the event of the year for many of you, I am not uncertain it is a highlight for the man to whom this blog is dedicated 😀
