Showtime's Billions wants to be a battle between two heavy hitters in the business world. And while it is that, it's something even better: a prize fight between four fantastic actors.

Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, Maggie Siff and Malin Akerman all shine in the new drama, which premieres next Sunday and offers viewers another look into a high-powered world. But where House of Lies is a comedic take on consultancy, Billions is a tough exploration of Wall Street - particularly the intersection between three familiar subjects: money, power and politics.

U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) ...

Michael C. Hall
