Billions Brings Richer Drama
“My character is less Mussolini and more Machiavelli,” says Paul Giamatti of Chuck Rhoades, the manipulative federal prosecutor he plays on Billions. In the show’s second season, he continues to pursue corrupt hedge-fund magnate Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis). But, as in season one, the show’s cat and mouse rarely share a scene. Says Paul, “Not acting with each other often makes it more exciting every time we get to do it.”

Paul says Chuck will be “less brutal and more strategic” in season two.
