TV viewers will have to wait until next January to see Paul Giamatti’s new drama Billions but at the TV Critics tour Paul also talked about his role on Downton Abbey.
In Billions he portrays US Attorney Chuck Rhoades, who faces off with brilliant billionaire hedge-fund king, Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod (Damian Lewis). More on Billions later this year.
At the TV Critics tour, where Showtime previewed the new series, I was interested in talking with Giamatti about another of his roles – that of Harold Levinson, Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham’s (Elizabeth McGovern) brother on Downton Abbey. In the Christmas special in 2013, Harold, along with his mother, Martha (Shirley MacLaine), come to London to help celebrate Lady Rose’s (Lily Rose) debutante debut.
