“Most Trumpian Show on TV”: Damian Lewis & Paul Giamatti on “Billions”

by Luca Celada March 23, 2018

Billionaire investor Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and US Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) lock horns again in Billions. Season 3 of Showtime’s Wall Street drama sees Bobby indicted for malfeasance and Rhoades tasting victory. But as Lewis told the HFPA, appearances can deceive, and Paul Giamatti promises a dramatic final twist at the end of the season. Both actors told us how events have dramatically caught up with a show which was inspired by the macho antics of the financial world, but which has been given new meaning by a billionaire President who has seemingly managed to surpass the hubris of even the most brazen Wall Street honcho.
