‘V’ Star Morena Baccarin Joins Showtime Drama Series ‘Homeland’ As Regular

EXCLUSIVE: Just two weeks after ABC canceled cult favorite V, the show’s standout Morena Baccarin has joined another drama series, Showtime’s Homeland. The upcoming thriller, from 24 executive producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa, centers on Marine Sergeant Scott Brody (Damian Lewis), who returns home eight years after going missing in Iraq, and Carrie Anderson (Claire Danes), a driven CIA officer who suspects he might be plotting an attack on America. Baccarin will play Jessica Brody, Scott’s smart, strong wife. She replaces Laura Fraser, who played the role in the pilot. The series, which also co-stars Mandy Patinkin, is slated to debut in the fall. Firefly and Stargate alumna Baccarin played The Visitors’ diabolical queen Anna on V, which ran for two seasons, and recently did a guest stint on CBS’ The Mentalist. She is with UTA and Seven Summits.

Homeland & Festival update


The Homeland Casting Facebook page posted information on the filming schedule:

We will be starting back on the Showtime series Homeland earlier than originally planned -now mid June. If you worked either of the 2 Welcome Home scenes during the pilot (at neighborhood or airport) you will be working our first week back for reshoots. Once pilot reshoots are completed we will begin filming season 1 and filming thru mid November

Thanks to Sami for the headsup!

Perhaps because of this “earlier than originally planned” filming, it seems Damian Lewis has indeed dropped out of the June 4th Hay Festival event: He is no longer listed on the event page.

News & new gallery address


  • We received an update from Michael

    concerning Damian’s upcoming projects and it looks like at the moment Damian is attached to film Driven but that they are “still waiting for dates to be confirmed for the filming of HOMELAND. Until all of this is finalised nothing is

    confirmed for any other work.” Homeland producers said earlier this year that Homeland would film from June to October. Given the possible filming dates for Homeland, Michael also says “It does not look like the Hay Festival will be in Damian’s diary either but to date this is TBC (To Be Confirmed).”
