  1. From Wikipedia Entry for “Billions (TV series)”:

    Damian Lewis as Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, an ambitious hedge fund king
    Paul Giamatti as U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades
    Maggie Siff

    Oh Boy, Rachel!!

    We’ll see if they will make a marginally sympathetic character who happens to be worth 9-figures.

    Giamatti usually associates himself with good writing – I presume he’ll be pursuing Lewis for insider-trading, illegal-knowledge violations.
