      Woof! That is all

    • Karen Belgrad

      I’d like a pictorial of Damian Lewis and Kevin McKidd…

      • myristica_fragrans

        *fanning self*

      • ItsDicey

        Kevin McKidd…oh yeah.

      • mshesterp

        Ah…hot redheads. Both so, so sexy. Nicely suggested.

    • lexilexi

      Cannot wait for season 3.

    • thecitysleeps

      Oooooh he’s a good ginger. Holy goddamn.

    • charlotte

      Existentialist Brody! Perhaps he found a TARDIS in that forest…

    • DTLAFamilies

      Steve McQueen

      • leahpapa

        Took the words right outta my keyboard.

        Strait up doppelgänger status in the shot with the shades.

      • formerlyAnon

        Reminiscent, but better, IMO.

      • ventureforth

        I swear I have thought he looked JUST LIKE Steve since he was on the short-lived “Life” and everybody I spoke to was like “oh, you’re just imagining things!”

        NOPE. My god that turtleneck shot is ;aksdj;asdag;

    • MilaXX

      Love the retro feel of the black and white photo. Homeland may be the only thing to help me get over the ending of Breaking Bad.

      • makeityourself

        Me too. I know this isn’t the appropriate forum but damn, BB is killing me every Sunday night.
        I’ve loved Damien Lewis since Band of Brothers so therefore he can never, ever do wrong by me.

        • MilaXX

          I know! I haven’t felt this wistful about a show ending since The Wire.

      • Alloy Jane

        *sigh* And we just cancelled our movie package because we never watch those channels. I wish you could just order certain shows on your tv and not have to pay for the whole channel. Do they do that yet? It’d be like ppv movies but you’re ordering a season of a show. Someone needs to do this if this is not yet a thing. Because I <3 Homeland and was SOOO SAD when season 2 ended.

        • MilaXX

          I watch over my siblings, but I think you can get season passes on Amazon and iTunes & maybe Netflix. You’d just have to catch up over the summer.

          • Alloy Jane

            I meant through cable service. My sister REFUSES to watch tv on the internet and we do not have a smart tv. Although now I’m thinking of asking my cousin if they have Showtime. I hope they do, but I am not looking forward to sitting in the same room with my uncle during one of Showtime’s awkward and gratuitous sex scenes.

            • MilaXX

              sorry, the only other option would be to run the picture through your tv using a hmdi cable

            • MaggieMae

              My husband bought a Apple TV box off eBay. We don’t watch a lot of TV, so it works well that we dropped cable, and only buy seasons of certain shows from either iTunes or Amazon. Either way, Apple TV can play the shows on the TV (it’s not a smart TV) or we can watch on the iPad or computer. We like.

    • imspinningaround

      Many years ago, I saw Damian Lewis in a bar and he gave me the up-down “yeah, I’d hit it” look. Still makes me blush to think about it.

      • imspinningaround

        BACK ATCHA, PAL!

      • formerlyAnon

        That, my friend, is an ember to metaphorically warm one’s hands on in old age.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Ummmmmm. Yeah, just,…yeah.

    • Glam Dixie

      Perhaps if I watched the show I would understand the appeal, but as is, I just don’t get it. More for the rest of you!

    • Aidan B


    • Danielle


    • Qitkat

      Who is *the dark lord of prime time*?

      Looking broodingly good, Damien.

    • Terri Terri

      If Toby Stephens (sigh) and Steve McQueen had a love- child.

      • myristica_fragrans

        toby stephens is the best thing maggie smith ever did. forget violet.

        • Terri Terri

          You got that right!! The best Mr. Rochester ever!!

    • Imasewsure

      Don’t watch the show and I know I should. These pictures do nothing for me. He looks like a hot shot attorney

    • Trickytrisha

      Love the black and white retro look.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Ooh! He looks like Steve McQueen in the black & white! Yum!

    • amanda lynn

      They look great. I LOVE the black and white one.

    • Louise Bryan

      *sigh* What is there to say?

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      I haven’t watched Homeland yet (I know, I know but some of us are HBO and time-hindered) but I love him so from Band of Brothers…still…after all these years. Both those photos are just…yum!

    • mechanical_orange

      When I first saw the thumbnail on the front page I seriously thought it was Ralph Fiennes

    • Jacquelyn

      That man is gorgeous and I really have nothing more to say.

      • formerlyAnon

        There is more?

    • sisterb67

      Hubba. HUBBA.

      That is all.

    • formerlyAnon

      Damian Lewis is so attractive.

      Why did they do that pose on the cover which makes it look as if they want to completely obscure what that suit actually looks like on him?

      Ahh, who cares. Damian Lewis is so attractive.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      He is so hot.

    • marlie

      DL has never set my panties on fire, but he does really look great in these photos, especially the one with the turtleneck and shades.

    • Kate Andrews

      Whoo-wee! Steve McQueen 2.0!

    • editrixie

      Man, the shit I had to go through to get a copy of that movie a number of years ago…but it was worth it, that movie is truly amazing and there’s the added bonus of brief full frontal Damian.
