‘Homeland’ Season 3: New S2 Deleted Scene Features Saul As…Chewbacca?

We’re eagerly awaiting the ‘Homeland‘ season 3 premiere on September 29 to see what’s become of the CIA in the wake of Nicholas Brody’s apparent act of terror, but the latest bit of the footage from the series is just too weird to ignore. A new season 2 deleted scene has arisen featuring Saul (Mandy Patinkin)’s visit to David Estes’ home, but who knew “The Bear” was such a ‘Star Wars‘ geek?

Via The Wall Street Journal, the latest clip leftover from ‘Homeland’ season 2 sees Saul confronted by David’s young son with a lightsaber, only to admit that he doesn’t much care for the role assigned to him in the duel. Whyever would they have left it out, and saved it for the September 10 Blu-ray release, we wonder? Oh, right. The lawsuits. Well, we’ll always have ‘Princess Bride’ references to fall back on.

Meanwhile, ‘Homeland’ season 3 picks up during the aftermath of the terror attack that decimated the US intelligence apparatus and prompted a global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist, Nick Brody. As Carrie and Saul begin to pick up the pieces of their shattered professional and personal lives, they will be swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for Brody.

Along with the recent additions of ‘Iron Man‘ star Shaun Toub, Martin Donovan, Tracy Letts, Joanna Merlin, Nazanin Boniadi, Amy Morton, Lawrence Clayton, Sam Underwood, Gary Wilmes and ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 4 star Pedro Pascal, season 3 of ‘Homeland’ will see David Marciano (Virgil) and Diego Klattenhoff (Mike)stepping down as series regulars to take reduced roles, while Morena Baccarin will reprise her series regular role as Jessica Brody in spite of her husband’s absence.

Count down ‘Homeland’s return with the above clip and our Fall TV 2013 preview, and tell us what you want to see from season 3 in the comments!
