Add acting to David Solomon’s off-Wall Street repertoire.
The Goldman Sachs CEO filmed a guest appearance for the latest season of “Billions” — the Showtime series chronicling fictional hedge fund outlaw Bobby Axelrod that’s drawn a cult viewership in the real industry. Solomon was roped into the gig at the end of last year and shot his cameo, playing himself, in early March.
It’s another way the 58-year-old is striking an unusually public persona atop the historically staid investment bank. Predecessors for generations have tried to separate themselves from Wall Street’s flashier impulses. Solomon, in contrast, is famous for his side-gigs as DJ D-Sol, finding himself at a ritzy Super Bowl party in February on a lineup alongside the Black Eyed Peas, Marshmello, and the rapper DaBaby.
“Billions” is known for its Wall Street cameos, including the likes of Omeed Malik, Marc Lasry and Mark Cuban. The next season premieres in May. Showtime wouldn’t confirm or deny Solomon’s part. And in showbiz, there’s always a chance he might not make the final cut.
