Homeland postmortem: Show boss breaks down the "magic trick" of Season 3

OK, so that wasn't really the question in Season 2; it only felt that way because Brody (Damian Lewis) seemed like he was living on borrowed time ever since he opted not to blow himself up via suicide vest in the first season-ender. But going into Sunday's Season 3 finale — which picked up moments after Brody, working at the behest of the CIA, killed General Akbari inside the Iranian leader's secure compound — Brody's odds of surviving his latest "suicide mission" seemed quite long... read more

Postmortem: Homeland Boss Weighs In on Saul's Shocking Decision

Mandy Patinkin, Homeland

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the season premiere of Homeland. Read at your own risk.]

"A win would be nice. Another f--- up could be fatal."

Those are Saul Berenson's words to his CIA colleague Dar Adal around the midpoint of Homeland's Season 3 premiere — and they are almost an understatement.

Homeland boss on "quieter" Season 3: Carrie's questioning herself at every turn

Picking up nearly two months after a car bomb nearly wiped out the entire CIA, Saul (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie (Claire Danes) and the rest of what's left of the agency are being scrutinized by a Senate Intelligence Committee led by Sen. Lockhart (Tracy Letts).

Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon Doesn't Know How Creepy He Can Be

Michael Shannon

Even as a high school thespian, Michael Shannon conveyed gravitas. "I would always play the old guy; I guess I had a good old-guy voice," he says. Over the telephone, his gravelly timbre does make him seem older than his baby-faced 36 years.

As Nelson Van Alden on HBO's Boardwalk Empire -- a gritty confection of organized crime in 1920s Atlantic City created by The Sopranos' Terence Winter and executive-produced by Martin Scorsese -- that deep voice serves Shannon well. He plays a federal agent tasked with enforcing Prohibition, the so-called "good guy" whose personal faith and unrelenting drive for justice... read more
