  2. K B Tan

    His accent control and versatility is amazing

  3. Casey Chin

    I know him as Dick Winters from Band of Brothers

  4. HueTubeR

    What happened to his voice? Back when he was interviewing for Band of Bros, he sounded more raspy. Now he sounds like a clown.

  5. electric boogaloo

    Pulls whiskey bottle: What are you going to do when we get to Europe?

  6. iLoveTheseRemoras

    So a glass of booze is now a cocktail...? 🤔

  7. Skadewdle

  17. Tara Severa-Miller

    He will always be Bobby Axelrod, to me.

  18. twyfordlion

    why is he speaking like an American, he is British or is he just pissed up ............... as we Brits would say.

  19. Alice's Rabbit

    Hahaha! I've been out of town all week, and now I'm finally home sipping a dirty martini and catching up on the missed Colberts. Perfect start. Cheers!

  20. Jon Dunmore

    Damian looks like he's already blasted from the get-go. Remember him from DREAMCATCHER.

  21. Tyleride16

    We solute the rank, not the man.

  22. Wired Weird

    6:00 For a second I thought Damian was re-enacting a scene from "Inherit the Wind"

  23. Shan Hussain

    The eyes Damian... You eyes. A bit of a giveaway

  24. Daniel Verberne

    What ... what is wrong with his accent?

  25. T Mox

    I thought he was British

  26. Raoul Fleckman

    Why did the band play "PsychoKiller"?? anybody?

  27. Carlos Santana

    Major Winters..

  28. Chris R

    Did Damian get a head start on that bourbon..? Or has he just 'gone native'? He hardly sounds like the old Etonian of yore.

  29. Povl Besser

    Uhm, excuse me, Stephen. I know Damian Lewis from Band of Brothers and nothing else matters.

  30. Ravi Hooda

    He killed it as Winters and axelrod. I love him

  31. Sam Miller

    Ummmmm.... why’s he using an American accent?

  32. bellajuventina

    He’ll always be Brody for me.

  33. El Chungo

    I legit thought he’d farted

  34. Kinga Kristóf

    That glass clink dance mid-video was smoother than the bourbon.

  35. Weirduncle Bob V

    Never heard of Damian or Billions but YNWA, anyway, lad! :D

  36. Isabel Climent Aroz

    When Stephen introduced him I thoght, ok, some random guy I don't know. And then Major Winters comes out!

  37. Jojo Dizon

    Isnt he the original Steve Mcqueen from The Great Escape?

  38. Marquise

    *Loved him in band of brothers*

  39. sdfkjgh

    2:27 "If the doublet fits..."

  41. D Harrison

    This show sucks... Should be canceled!!!!

  42. Ron Jon

    Damian’s accent improved ever since My Brothers Band

  43. jesscateyeSQUAD

    He kind of looks like a 40 year version of the main kid from malcolm in the middle😁that was the most awkward toast they did of their shot glasses

  44. Sandrine Marie

    Favorite actor in homeland

  45. Kevin Conrad

    I live with an actor, the fart noises is correct.

  48. bob burroughs

    Couldn't Damian get a jacket his size? And he's pissed.

  49. Cy *

    Cocaine's a hell of a drug

  50. The1AndOnlyGoldenboy

  55. Ellen Spear

    Okay, what's with the American accent, Damian Lewis? Please be yourself.

  56. Legacy Robot

    Bobby Axelrod, Brody this guy is simply a screen legend!

  57. Jerry Bot

    From the youtube thumbnail at fist I thought it was the dude from Malcom In The Middle, but then it turned out to be the guy from Band of Brothers.

  58. Rentendo 64

    7:54 the respect for Broadway was immaculate just here lol

  59. Sean Inness

  64. Steph Bottorff

    This makes me want to re watch Band of Brothers. Its been awhile.

  65. Tramaine Terrance

    Hello, Humans. There is a place that doesn't have sand or water. A place that allows you to manipulate the very fabric of reality. Nothing can prepare you for the unknown. The water and sand throughout the universe will create life. That life will end, in order to create more sand and water. Sometimes in life.... TERRANCE OUT

  66. dugfriendly

    Third season of “Life”!!

  67. RKMurphy

    Ever since winters had that one drink with nixon he couldnt handle himself. For real though he sounds (and looks) pretty sloshed during this. Wont be surprised if there some stupid controversy about it soon.

  68. J P

    The three shows he said I would know him from..... haven't heard of any of them. Why not just say Band of Brothers?

  69. Richard Edwards

    What's with the wanky American accent?

  70. Eric Cartman

    #24 on trending

  71. Wyatt King

    Who the hell cares that his accent has changed over the years? That ginger is a damn national treasure!

  72. schizomania

    Why does he look like a coke addicted Frankie Muniz

    1. Ash bash 8717

      😂😂😂😂 I just spit water across the room. Lmao. That was good.

  73. joolsca

    His accent is so Americanized for this audience...when he's at home he's still British

  74. Philip Mansour

    Dude this guy could play the next Grinch!

  75. Apple Lynch

    Love him in billions Bobby Alxrode

  76. Apple Lynch

    Love him in billions Bobby Alxrode

  77. B V

  78. Michael Johnson


  79. A SH2018

    Is it only me or he's looking a bit like Steve McQueen

  80. Simon Worrall

    What's with the american accent??

  81. Claire Poole

    Why is posh Etonian actor speaking in American accent

  82. Yang Ji

    Billions is a great show. I need to get back to season 3 soon to catch up.

    Narrowing the Problem: In my opinion, the problems society is facing and will continue to face are these: A lack of historical understandings, not in the common history of battles, but the specialized histories. Society has a drug issue and that is a major problem. Not only do we have drug issues, but we tend to take post-bender and addiction flights into society and the workplace. The other issue is that the professional media, in general, seems to have taken an information warfare stance and is not interested in entertainment for its own sake. The problem with the historical understandings is that they are rooted in secrecy and world diplomacy and are controversial. These are all problem dealing with people's brains and the brain is the most important part of the body and questionably the soul. I'm personally surviving off a degree in Graphic Design and half of one in Metals Machining, including a decade of amateur math and ringmaking; some Occults are required. We had an animation class next door and welding. I just did hobby degrees related to my ethnicity. The only changes were going through are in computers, biology, and physics and in science versus religion. That's all these issues are, in my opinion. I don't see what the big deal is. There's an electronic abacus. Order a book on war strategies or something. Those sexual and racial issues are due to their drug habits, or something. They minored in simple suggestion and persuasion secrets related to esoteric and specialized history, but these are worldwide broadcasts. It's just "Inky Fool" and Trivium related garbage. They have to show integrity. I just think its a little heavy for normal working people. Thanks. I know drinking is about the citrus and distilling is related to metals! Avoid the vodka, right?

  84. Jeremy

    Dude is tanked, wow

  85. Corey Dunlap

    I didn’t realize the lead singer of queens of the stone age was so cool

  86. C J

    Looking at the number of thumbs up, this interview was really underrated - this was funny 😁

  87. Francophone Scandinavian

    Ah, Soames Forsyte, you haven't changed a bit 💙. But your accent sure has 😉.

  88. Austin Williams

    That dance with the drinks when they tried to clink glasses was hilarious

  89. Magnetar 117

    Stephen broke the drinking rule with the bar ice cubes. It's 2 cube per glass not 3 come on Stephen you should know better.

  90. Metalhead777

    Sergeant, Captain or Major, he will always be Winters!

  91. vijay narasiman

    the crowd kind of sucks

  92. mav

    sounds drunk in american accent

  93. Elektro_pionir

    Hello Colbert people! THE. BAND. OF. F***. BROTHERS!

  94. Raven Fields

    Having done living history and professional show fighter for 20 yrs I can sympathise with the wound . My most weird was a freak accident resulting in stitches on the back of my throat

  95. B-dog McFlannigans

    he’s doing an American accident the whole time?

  96. WarBoyz 95

    Major Winters sir!! (Salute)

  97. punknaught

    You broke Damien Lewis America...good job, he goes from accent to no accent to part of an accent to full british, to none and back again all in a span of 2 mins. But that could be the drinks before and during.

  98. Mohamed Alfalo

    @6:06 No wonder the movie had underwear budget. 🤣

  99. Jim Maughan

    Hope he doesn't get in a sword fight after the show. He sucks when he's pissed.
