A new drama project in the works at Showtime is attracting some big-name talent. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the latest addition to the lineup for the “Billions” pilot is “Trophy Wife” star Malin Akerman.
Akerman, who had a breakout role on HBO’s “The Comeback,” joins Homeland veteran Damian Lewis and Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Paul Giamatti on “Billions.”
“Her character, Lara Axelrod, is a former nurse who, once from humble beginnings, is now married to billionaire Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod (Lewis),” the story reports.
“Billions” is written and exec produced by Brian Koppelman, David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin.
