UPDATE - 5/17@8:41PM: Here's the 2112 Overture scene from Billions:

----- snip -----

Rush's 2112 Overture is played during one scene of tonight's episode of the Showtime drama Billions (Season 4, Episode 9 - American Champion). At about the 25:30 mark in the show, Bryan (Toby Leonard Moore) is at a cycling exercise class where Rush's 2112 Overture is played for about 40 seconds (thanks Andy F). Billions Showrunner Brian Koppelman is a huge Rush fan, and this is not the first time the show has included a Rush reference. During a scene earlier in Season 4 (Episode 2 - Arousal Template) Taylor punches in a 4-digit access code into a keypad to open a door, and the code is - of course - 2-1-1-2 as seen in this tweet. Also, last year in episode 9 of season 3, Axe and Taylor spend a portion of one scene debating which is Rush's best album as seen in this post.
