Interview with ‘Homeland’ producer

Missed this audio interview with Homeland producer Howard Gordon posted a few days ago at CLT Blog. Here’s the bit about Damian:

CLT Blog: Damian Lewis is playing the lead character that has come back and recovered, is that correct?

Gordon: Exactly.

CLT Blog: It’s kind of interesting because his character in Life he was in

prison for 12 years and kind of had to come back and readjust. There’s a little

similarity. How did Damian Lewis come to be a part of this show?

Gordon: I’d always admired him tremendously and when you think about a returning

American hero you don’t think about British actors at first blush but Damian is

someone who does this impeccable American accent and has kind of oddly enough an

American face, too. What really sold it for us was believe it or not, neither Life or

Band of Brothers, but this amazing movie he did called Keane.
