HOMELAND post - Damian Lewis in Ridley Scott's new short, Claire Danes bought a new house



The Emmy-winning Homeland star filmed 'Desire' during December 2012 in Chile's Atacama Desert. Speaking at the US launch of the F-Type sports car at Paramount Studios, in November Lewis said: "When Jaguar approached me about the F-Type Desire film, I was really intrigued. I then got to read the script and decided it was definitely a project I wanted to be a part of.

"It promises to be an adventure. Jaguar cars have played some iconic roles in film for many years, and I'm looking forward to being the first to drive the F-TYPE in film".

Lewis plays a man who delivers cars for a living. He runs into trouble in the middle of the desert after a chance encounter with a mysterious woman played by Shannyn Sossamon (A Knight's Tale, How to Make It in America).
Spanish-born actor Jordi Molla (Colombiana, Bad Boys II) will also appear as a villain.

Smith's previous credits include Doctor Who episodes such as The Eleventh Hour - introducing Matt Smith and Karen Gillan to the series - music videos for The Streets, episodes of Skins and Little Dorrit, Chemical Brothers concert movie Don't Think and a commercial for Nike featuring Wayne Rooney.

The film is soundtracked by Lana Del Rey's 'Burning Desire'. Del Rey is also a brand ambassador for Jaguar, and the track featured on the Paradise Edition of her recently re-released debut album Born to Die.

Claire Danes bought a new house 7 blocks away from her old one





BUYER: Claire Danes
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $6,876,000
SIZE: 3,166 square feet, 4-5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

On the very same day that Homeland actress Claire Danes sold her nearly 4000 square foot condo-loft in a re-purposed turn of the 19th century building in the heart of New York City's Soho 'hood for $5,850,650, she and her British actor hubby Hugh Dancy (Black Hawk Down, The Big C, Hannibal) shelled out $6,876,000 for a late 19th century four story Greek Revival-style townhouse eight or nine blocks north on a narrow, tree-shaded block in the south end of the fully gentrified West Village.

The townhouse seller was David Shaffer, an enormously respected and impressively accomplished psychiatrist who was married to and procreated with famously autocratic Vogue head honcho Anna Wintour in the 1980s and 1990s. Doctor Shaffer, much to his pocketbook's delight, no doubt, acquired the house, according to property records, in late 1999 for $1,700,000. It is Mister Shaffer who is responsible for all the books and artwork and interestingly placed rugs seen throughout the house in listing photos.

Mandy Patinkin reports for duty


Prospective jurors were astonished yesterday to see Saul Berenson of “Homeland” report for duty. Mandy Patinkin, who plays the cerebral CIA division chief and mentor to Claire Danes’ character, Carrie Mathison, on the Showtime series, showed up at the Centre Street courthouse. We’re told, “He was questioned as part of the group for a trial. But it was a little awkward because the lawyers asked him very personal questions, like where he lived, what he did for a living. He said he was an actor but didn’t say what show, but in the middle of the potential jurors being questioned, the judge said he was a ‘big fan.’ ” Patinkin didn’t get picked, which was probably a relief to every defendant coming up for trial.

‘Homeland’ season 3 direction hinted with David Marciano departure(RIP VIRGIL/CARRIE FRIENDSHIP!!! and lol@ this "article"..)



Homeland has revealed the news that David Marciano will be leaving the award winning series, and is slowly dropping hints at Homeland‘s season 3 direction. Where will Homeland season 3 be heading?

David Marciano who has been with Homeland since its pilot has been given his marching orders, after the popular character of Virgil will only be returning to Homeland on a guest-starring basis from now on according to a report with Deadline.com. Fans will not be seeing Marciano as often as they may hope, but it’s still unclear of what future role Marciano will play.

Marciano joins Diego Klattenhoff as the second regular to disappear off the roster aside from the characters who were killed off in season 2, with most notably David Harewood and Navid Negahban.

Deadline.com also commented on the direction of season 3 with rumours stating that Homeland season 3 could see Brody resurface in Venezuela after his last sighting seen crossing the border into Canada.(huh?? that would be insane, how would he get there??) However, this is purely speculation regarding the direction of Homeland season 3 but we can assume that the series will be taking a welcomed change.

Rupert Friend will reportedly step up to become one of the main Homeland characters as we reported as we can assume that he will be the man responsible for bringing Brody in. And with that, we can understand that Homeland is shrinking its cast to focus more on the characters that already exist, and to give room to introduce new characters to breathe new life into the show. This was definitely the case for 24 which was also fronted by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon. The Homeland executives may not be as ruthless as The Walking Dead, but Homeland does relish in the environment of not being afraid to spring a surprise on their fans.
