The popular Showtime series is now casting New York and area locals that would like to work as background extras in season 5. The show’s extras casting directors with GWC of NY will be needing  paid extras of all ethnicities for some upcoming scenes.  Please see the details below.

As production ramps up, there will most likely be quite a few more extras calls coming out for “Billions” in the NYC area.


Paul Giamatti stars in the Showtime series, “Billions“ – Where wealth, influence and corruption collide.  “Billions” is set in New York where it films. In the show, Paul Giamatti plays a U.S. attorney who is trying to bring down his nemesis, a hedge fund manager played by Damien Lewis.


Paul Giamatti and Damien Lewis  star – 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.
