Thursday Morning Man: Damian Lewis!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/__NQFR6dKO-g/SV6WHewi3EI/AAAAAAAABEA/j4Clx3EcMec/s400/damian_lewis_99.jpgFans of the old NBC series Life no doubt have missed seeing its handsome red-headed star, Damian Lewis, on the screen each week.

Well, I have some good news: Damian has just been cast as the male lead in the HBO pilot Homeland opposite Claire Danes.

The show centers on Marine Sergeant Scott Brody (Lewis), who returns home after spending eight years as a prisoner of war in Baghdad, and Carrie Anderson (Danes), a driven CIA officer who suspects he might be plotting an attack on America, according to Deadline Hollywood.

The 39-year-old British screen and stage actor (he can do a very credible American accent) also previously appeared in HBO’s Emmy-winning World War II mini-series Band of Brothers.
