Wolf Hall, the latest BBC Two and Masterpiece co-production, is a six-episode adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Tudor-set novels, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. The Tudor court of England's Henry VIII (played by Damian Lewis) has certainly been explored through fiction in many forms, but the real takeaway from Wolf Hall is not in regards to its portrayal of Henry or the machinations of Anne Boleyn (Claire Foy), but in the fact that Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance) was a totally badass. At least, as Mantel tells it. Wolf Hall is Rylance's showcase, as he exudes a quiet power and certainty when it comes to his wit, his talents, and his loyalty. Everything about Wolf Hall thrives on understatement, not only from its actors, but in its very filmmaking. Director Peter Kosminsky (who directed all six parts) allows settings to be illuminated by natural light, which often means actors »

If you plan to watch the first episode of Wolf Hall on Masterpiece on Sunday, you are about to witness one of the best dramas to come out of the UK for over a decade. Put Downton Abbey to one side, because this writing, acting and direction might as well come from an entirely different island. It is so much better.
And yes, it does feature Damian Lewis from Homeland as the spoiled, capricious king of England, but you will barely notice him once Mark Rylance arrives on screen. More of him in a minute. Actually, that’s unfair, as Lewis does a splendid job portraying a difficult role – but it’s clear he raises his game and drills down a bit deeper into »

It may not be as steamy as The Tudors, but heads will still roll. In the PBS Masterpiece six-hour miniseries Wolf Hall, Damian Lewis (Homeland) assumes the royal garb of infamous 16th-century English monarch Henry VIII for the television adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s acclaimed historical novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. Set during Henry’s reign in the years from 1529-35, the story is told from the perspective of his chief adviser, Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance), who finds a political adversary in eventual queen Anne Boleyn (Claire Foy). “Henry really bestrides it as a presence,” Lewis says of Wolf … Continue reading →

Brody's back! Ok, not really! Damian Lewis is returning to Showtime, but not as everyone's favorite solider-turned-traitor-turned Claire Danes' leading man and baby daddy on Homeland.
