Timothy Davis stood on the deck and looked out over New York City. As he gazed down at a little bodega and basketball court, he noticed the scene seemed familiar. He played on that basketball court as a struggling artist many years ago. Back then he only knew he wanted to be an actor in New York City. Now, as he stood on the balcony during a break from filming "Billions," Davis revelled in the fact his dream had come true.
