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

This is a super cool video where Lesli talks about the nuances and complexities of directing the first part of the finale in Budapest. Great for us film nerds!

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.

Here’s a portion of the FYC event from the other night. There are some truly wild stories in here about how Alex Gansa rewrote the Keane speech in the finale and Mandy’s most vivid takeaways from spy camp.

Mandy was pretty funny on James Corden. Could you post it for all to see? Thanks!!

Ashley when I told her that he was singing in Yiddish: “oh mandy”

I love his oh so subtle shade at James Corden (and Shawn Mendes) for fawning all over Shawn by telling Shawn that he needed to meet someone who’s never heard of him:

Los Angeles Times Entertainment:

Maybe it’s because it’s a Monday, maybe because I’m tired… but this interview… hoo boy. I’m a pretty cynical person, but Mandy’s earnestness and thoughts about Saul, his relationship with Carrie (and IRL with Claire)… I’m feeling all the feelings! Say what you will about Mandy, but he is a deeply feeling and passionate person and I think that made for a really great (and surprisingly funny!) interview. 

Since it’s been a hot topic around these parts, here’s what he said about season eight being potentially the last (the interviewer was the same for Claire’s interview and she clearly took her cues from Claire by saying it was the presumed/supposed/etc final season):

“I have been told in no uncertain times by the studio and the network that no decisions have been made. And to make that clear… I have also been told by other individuals that they think their time’s up. And it is a fact that Alex Gansa, the showrunner, and Claire and myself are contracted only through season eight. But I have no idea what the future holds.”

This gives further weight to my theory that Claire might have gotten a little wrist slap (“to make that clear”) for announcing that season eight was the last season on Howard Stern in April, before Fox/Showtime had a chance to say anything officially.
