Billions: Damian Lewis Effin' Taunts Paul Giamatti in Showtime Trailer

Damian Lewis is no hero in Showtime’s Billions.

As seen in the first trailer for the new drama — which is set in the world of New York City power politics and finance — the Emmy-winning Homeland vet and Emmy winner Paul Giamatti each play highly ambitious figures.

Specifically, Giamatti is Chuck Rhoades, a hard-charging, blue-blooded and politically connected U.S. Attorney, while Lewis is Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, a calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king. And needless to say, as evidenced the trailer above, the gents are by no means friends.

WARNING: The trailer contains NSFW language, especially when Lewis drives home a point in the final seconds.

Billions, which also stars Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad, will debut sometime in 2016.

    I guess Malin Akerman plays the wife of Damian Lewis and Maggie Siff does likewise for Paul Giamatti. Great cast.
