The second season of SHO's Billions has begun. The first season was very good and the second looks promising as well.
Here's the trailer for new season.
A The Tycoon Playbook grad just notified me of the movie about Ray Kroc and how he built the McDonald's Empire. Michael Keaton has the lead role and is supported by a quality cast of supporting actors and actresses.
It will be out in August this year.
Here's the trailer.
Showtime will have a 12 part series about a shady hedge fund billionaire. It stars Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti and looks like it will be worth checking out. The only problem is that it airs sometime in early 2016.
“Billions” is a bold, contemporary drama that melds the worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, “Billions” weaves a complex, intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey. Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star. The pilot was directed by acclaimed director Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Divergent), who also serves as an executive producer.
A Most Violent Year
When it feels scary to jump, that is exactly when you jump. Otherwise you end up staying in the same place your entire life ... and that I can't do.

If you're a fan of Leo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill like I am, you'll get a laugh out of this clip from SNL with the two actors.
I sure did.
