numanoffice: some surprises for you are waiting 😈

Probably not. I’m the only one who’d really be interested in that sort of thing, and a) none of the dates are really compatible with me and b) even if they were, they’re mostly sold out.

Sara and I are going to see Claire Danes’s husband onstage this week, though! 

Mandy Patinkin Has Found a ‘New Life Partner in Music’:

Has playing a C.I.A. agent on “Homeland” impacted your worldview?Absolutely. Saul will never die for me, even if he dies on the show — and I don’t know if he will yet. Because he’s taught me how to listen. However you label me — and I’ve been labeled in many different ways — he is calm, and he’s given me this platform to be an information conduit for those who have no voice.

If Saul dies, I will eat my shoe.

Director/EP Lesli Linka Glatter on working with the main cast of “Homeland”:

hellyeahomeland:

New(ish) video. Lesli talks about her experiences working with Claire, Mandy, and Rupert. 

Lesli did a full interview (like, 90-minute interview) with the TV Academy, talking about different career highlights (including Homeland), which you can watch on YouTube here. The breakdown of the interview is here

ETA: I watched the Homeland-related partsof this, which is about the first hour (!), and I have to say it was actually super interesting. The interview asks a lot of really good questions and I find Lesli to be much more engaging and insightful when not giving 30-second sound bytes. She talks at length about the process of directing a Homeland episode; the core producing team on the ground each season; key moments in “Q&A,” “The Star,” “The Tradition of Hospitality,” “America First,” and “Paean to the People”; her working relationships with the actors on the show and the writers; and a lot more. Also!! I re-remembered that the season 3 finale leaked a day before it aired and that is something I definitely would not have otherwise remembered ever again in my life. Ain’t life interesting!

mandypatinkin More fun at @tiff_net!

Thanks for the heads up! I like all of those people, particularly Bernadette Peters and, obviously, Mandy. I dragged Sara to “Hello, Dolly!” this summer, actually, because I. Love. Bernadette. Peters.

So, even though I am not a movie person really, I will take this into consideration. 

‘Homeland’s’ Mandy Patinkin Goes for Emmy Gold:

Per Mandy in this article, they won’t be going to Spy Camp for about 2 more weeks. The writers room has already been open for a few weeks though. 

“Saul Berenson is a moral, ethical man, and I love playing someone right now who is the kind of person I would like to be.” –Mandy Patinkin

Gosh, I really do love Mandy Patinkin. His moment to win an Emmy may have passed but I’ll root for him anyway.
