Somewhere out there lies an entire alternate universe of weird TV, where John Cusack played Walter White of 'Breaking Bad,' and 'The Walking Dead' remained NBC's most popular series. Did you know that Ben Affleck nearly directed the pilot episode of 'Homeland, an incredibly strange twist of fate in light of his recent success with 'Argo' and increasing reputation as a director? What caused the Hollywood star to pass on directing such a beloved Emmy-darling property?
Amidst some pretty incredible episodes of 'Boardwalk Empire,' 'The Walking Dead' and even 'Dexter' last night, one Sunday night show really got people talking last night: 'Homeland'! Only five episodes into its sophomore season and already the premise has been turned completely on its head, with no once certain how the new dynamic will play out. But what do the latest clips from next week's "A Gettysburg Address" reveal?
The terrorist is out of the bag (or rather in the bag) now! Only four episodes into its second season, Showtime's Emmy darling and third-season-renewed 'Homeland' has already rocked the status quo a number of times, but none more so than this coming Sunday's nail-biter "Q&A." Congressman Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) has some difficult questions to answer, but will Carrie be the one to break him? And what do the new clips reveal about what's being told to the outside world?
Well, there's a shocker. After Showtime's critical darling terrorism drama 'Homeland' swept this year's Emmys with wins for Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and the series itself as Outstanding Drama, was there any doubt that Carrie Matheson would continue to piece together terrorist plots in a third season? But given the explosive turns that the series has taken lately, will the cast of the third season stay the same? Where could Carrie and Brody go next?
No, it's not a TV adaptation of 'The Mummy,' but don't think they haven't tried. Hollywood star Brendan Fraser is gearing up for his first foray into regular TV, as TNT and 'Homeland' executive producer Howard Gordon have tapped the one-time 'George of the Jungle' star for 'Legends' of a different kind. But where was the pilot originally supposed to end up, and what will Fraser's first regular television role entail?
Only three episodes into its sophomore season, and already Emmy-darling terrorism drama 'Homeland' has been dropping bombs left and right. The cat seems to be out of the bag with regard to one of Carrie Matheson's targets, but bringing them in will be another matter altogether. This Sunday's all-new episode "New Car Smell" will see Carrie and Saul putting together a team to go after the target, but what new complications might pop up along the way?
Well, that was quite a reveal last night, wasn't it? Where most TV series tend to drag out its mysteries and character secrets over several seasons (we're looking at you, 'Dexter'), 'Homeland's latest episode "Beirut is Back" jumped the gun rather drastically, revealing one of its biggest secrets in only the second episode of the season! But with ten more episodes to go this year, how to the latest clips from "State of Independence" show both Carrie and Brody on the edge?
