Director/EP Lesli Linka Glatter on working wit…

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

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!

Someone (Sara? Ashley? An Anon?) mentioned a few months ago about watching movies with HL cast during the hiatus. I would like to recommend “Impromptu” from 1991. This is one of my favorite all-time movies starring the great Australian actress Judy Davis as authoress George Sand who falls in love with Chopin, played by Hugh Grant before he was HG. Emma Thompson is her usual superbness, as is Julian Sands & Bernadette Peters. Mandy Patinkin is Alfred de Musset. Fab comedic period piece. 👍🏽👍🏽

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

‘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…

“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…

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

It occurred to me while reading this that maybe he’s getting back into recording albums in preparation for the show ending next year. There was no S8 denial or can-kicking here. The piece was quite matter-of-fact about the end, though of course Mandy didn’t come out and say it.

Once again I thought that I do like Mandy a lot more than Saul. Interesting article about an interesting human.

Homeland at Hayden Center: Espionage in Popular Culture

Homeland at Hayden Center: Espionage in Popular Culture:

Can’t get the video to embed directly here (it’s unlisted, maybe that’s why… damn spooks), but here’s the full video of the panel Lesli, Claire, Mandy, and Howard did with former CIA director General Michael Hayden. It’s quite long but also quite interesting. It’s a DC/academic/intelligence crowd, which drives a lot of the discussion and questions. Also it’s Mandy Patinkin at his Mandy Patinkin-est.
