Bil­lions Brings Richer Drama

Closer Weekly - - Entertainment -

“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.”

TUNE IN! Bil­lions re­turns Feb. 19 at 10 p.m. ET on Show­time

Paul says Chuck will be

“less bru­tal and more strate­gic” in sea­son two.
