Damian Lewis is one of England’s finest (and gingerest) actors. Though he started off in smaller, side-character roles, then wowed us all in the spy drama Homeland and has since tickled us, thrilled us, and wowed us. Now he is alluring us in the brand new thriller – Our Kind of Traitor.
Directed by Susanna White and written by Hossein Amini (guys, he wrote Drive,) Our Kind of Traitor revolves around an ordinary British couple who befriend a flamboyant Russian on holiday but unfortunately discover that he’s a criminal. Welp. When he asks for help, the pair are thrown into the dangerous world of espionage!
The latest clip sees Damian Lewis as the government agent Hector who is outside the Emirates (hashtag product placement,) planning some sort of spy romp. There’s also Mark Gatiss and we love him in everything he does. Ever. Mark Gatiss is the best!
With so much talent, could Our Kind of Traitor actually be good?
Our Kind of Traitor is out May 13th
