WebLinks celebritypipeline By Jay Bobbin Damian Lewis gets his "Billions" payoff Q: Damian Lewis's return to "Billions" is very welcome. Why did he leave the show in the first place? – Steve Day- ton, Orlando, Fla. A: When the actor signed off as Bobby "Axe" Axelrod after the first five seasons of the Showtime and Paramount+ With Showtime drama, his wife – actress Helen McCro- ry ("Peaky Blinders," "Skyfall") – had recently passed. He hasn't ad- dressed that as the specific reason for his leaving, but it undoubtedly had a contributing impact. In terms of his coming back to "Billions," it likely was appealing to Lewis to know that he would have a limited run, since this is the final season of the show. It also lets Axe get back to being Axe, since this round will do much to determine the character's enduring legacy, which could continue (though it hasn't been guaranteed) if he resurfaces in one of the "Billions" spinoffs that are being planned. Q: With all the talk about the movie "Oppenheimer" lately, wasn't there a television drama about the same subject? I think I remember seeing one years ago. – Paul Hartley, via e-mail A: There were a couple of notable ones. Sam Waterston starred as the Manhattan Project leader in a British-made drama also titled "Op- penheimer," which aired in its home country in 1980, then came to America as a presentation of PBS' "American Playhouse" in 1982. The production also featured David Suchet, a number of years before he started to make his mark as Agatha Christie's sleuth Hercule Poirot in a series of mysteries. The J. Robert Oppenheimer story also was told in "Day One," a Primetime Emmy-winning 1989 movie that cast David Strathairn ("The Firm," "Billions") in the role, with Brian Dennehy, Hal Holbrook, Hume Cronyn, David Ogden Stiers ("M*A*S*H") and then-"L.A. Law" regulars Michael Tucker and Richard Dysart also in the cast. It might come as a surprise that Aaron Spelling – whose bountiful and popular TV fare included "The Love Boat," "Dy- nasty" and "Charlie's Angels" – was an executive producer of the film. Incidentally, "Day One" appeared the same year as the theatrical film "Fat Man and Little Boy," which also covered the same story. Dwight Schultz, best- known as "Howling Mad" Mur- dock on the series "The A-Team," portrayed Oppenheimer in that version. Paul Newman, John Cu- sack and Laura Dern also starred in the movie directed by Roland Joffe ("The Killing Fields").
