‘Homeland’ Season 2 Books a Visit From ‘LOST’ Star
Things have been awfully quiet from the home front of ‘Homeland,’ considering all the ‘Dexter‘ news and castings that have spattered about. ‘Homeland’s first season left us in a pretty precarious place with its leads Carrie and the treacherous Brody, but the direction season 2 will take remains somewhat unclear. As long as we’re in the dark, which former ‘LOST‘ islander is going to light the way?
According to Deadline, ‘Homeland’ season 2 has picked up former ‘LOST’ and ‘Rome’ star Zuleikha Robinson (I never want to spell this again) for a “major” season 2 arc. Robinson will play Roya Hammad, a Middle Eastern field journalist with a special relationship to Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban) who delivers an ultimatum to Brody (Damian Lewis). Can we say co-conspirator?
For those who were fans of Nazir’s appearances in the first season, Navi Negahban has been moved into a series regular position alongside Jamey Sheridan’s Vice President Walden. Season 2 of ‘Homeland’ will pickup some six months after the events of the previous season, highlighting Carrie’s recovery as well as the evolution of Brody’s position within the White House.
If anything, we certainly hope that Robinson’s character will meet a more dignified end than her last one.
