NEW DELHI: Actor Suraj Sharma, who made an impact worldwide with ‘The Life of Pi’, has joined season four of the hit show series ‘Homeland’ which will be aired on Star World Premiere, along with its broadcast in America.
Apart from Sharma, the fourth season of the drama series has two new cast members - Laila Robins (Bored To Death, In Treatment) and Golden Globe® nominee Corey Stoll (House of Cards).
Corey Stoll will play the CIA chief of station in Pakistan and Laila Robins as the American Ambassador to Pakistan.
''I miss Danesy! I miss her! They'll be starting up again now,” said the British actor, Damian Lewis and revealed how much he misses his Homeland co-star Claire Danes. The cast of the hit Emmy award winning show is currently in Cape Town.
He also revealed that he almost did not join the show as Nicholas Brody. "I was very reluctant to do to another TV show. In fact, this was sent to me by my American agent. He just said, 'Just read this one,'" Lewis recalls. His agent told him: "Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa are involved, they ran '24' for the last five or six seasons. Claire Danes is doing it, Mandy Patinkin is on board. This is the one that everyone's talking about. Just read it.
"I very nearly did not do it, for personal reasons," Lewis admited. "But there were just too many compelling reasons to do it, so I did and I'm extremely happy."
