‘Billions’ Season 5 Casting Calls & Auditions | Showtime Casting Calls

Showtime‘s ‘Billions‘ season 5 is now hiring actors to work on scenes filming in New York City.

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming across New York City. Producers are looking for background extras, stand-ins and photo doubles to play Wall Street executive types, upper class types, and New York pedestrians among other featured roles.

About Billions:

Wealth, influence, and corruption collide in this drama set in New York. Shrewd U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades is embroiled in a high-stakes game of predator vs. prey with Bobby Axelrod, an ambitious hedge-fund king. To date, Rhoades has never lost an insider trading case — he’s 81-0 — but when criminal evidence turns up against Axelrod, he proceeds cautiously in building the case against Axelrod, who employs Rhoades’ wife, psychiatrist Wendy, as a performance coach for his company. Wendy, who has been in her position longer than Chuck has been in his, refuses to give up her career for her husband’s legal crusade against Axelrod. Both men use their intelligence, power, and influence to outmaneuver the other in this battle over billions. The high-profile cast is led by Emmy winners Paul Giamatti (“John Adams”) and Damian Lewis (“Homeland”) as Chuck Rhoades and Bobby Axelrod, respectively.

When will ‘Billions’ come back?
  • Showtime will be bringing Billions back this spring 2020. The financial drama will be back for Season 5 on Sunday, May 3 at 9/8c, the network revealed Monday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour
