Homeland Lands Oscar Winner for Season Two

In a move that may cause a collective geek out from movie buffs and fans of “That Guy” TV stars, Homeland has announced that they have tabbed F. Murray Abraham for a major role in its sophomore season.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Abraham will play Dar Adul, “a brilliant intelligence operative in his 60-70’s. He has worked all over the world for the Special Activities Division of the CIA.” Could he be the guy that finally gets control of Carrie Mathison? I sure hope not. As I’ve stated before in this space, I like my Carrie nice and crazy. We can only hope he serves some other purpose.

Homeland premieres September 30th at 10 PM on Showtime.
