Damian Lewis, is that you?!

The 47-year-old Billions actor was snapped on the set of his new film, Run This Town, in which he portrays the late Rob Ford, the controversial former mayor of Toronto, Canada. Lewis looked completely unrecognizable on the Toronto set thanks to incredible makeup as well as a bodysuit to add extra weight to the British actor's frame, amazingly transforming him into the disgraced politician.

On Tuesday, Lewis tweeted that he was "buried in prosthetics."

Run This Town will also star Ben Platt and Nina Dobrev. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film follows a reporter (Platt) who attempts to expose a scandal involving a politician who doesn't play by the rules. The politician's aides, played by Dobrev and actress Mena Massoud, try their best to handle him and keep the story suppressed.

Ford was the mayor of Toronto from 2010 to 2014, and died in March 2016 after a battle with cancer. He made headlines in 2013 when a video surfaced that appeared to show him using crack cocaine, though he refused to step down even after more videos surfaced showing him intoxicated in public.
