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.
