Damian Lewis has so expertly performed in military roles (Nick Brody on Homeland, Major Winters on Band of Brothers), GQ knew that there was one new hot item that he would be perfect to style in the November issue: the bomber jacket. After showing off four fly ways to sport the iconic piece of outerwear, the British actor chats with GQ about his latest roles, his
adeptness at playing classically coiled, laconic American men, and reveals his startlingly goofy side in his interview.
