Listen to this episode of The Moment with guest David Costabile:
This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to David Costabile, the actor best known for his roles in Breaking Bad, The Wire, and Lincoln. David stars in Showtime’s latest series, Billions, as Mike “Wags” Wagner, the right hand man to Bobby “Axe” Axelrod. Today, Brian and David discuss the actor’s process and the importance of “assuming your own brilliance.” Plus, David talks about his fanboyish encounter with Bryan Cranston, a theater audition gone terribly wrong, and why he keeps creating rules for himself just to break them.
This episode of The Moment is brought to you by Showtime’s new series Billions. Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis star in this bold, original drama as two of New York’s most powerful titans locked in an epic battle of egos. And there is no line both men won’t cross to win. Billions—a new series, Sundays at 10 p.m.—only on Showtime.
