Showtime has revealed the slate of guest stars set to appear on the third season of Homeland. The season will pick up during the aftermath of the horrific terror attack that decimated the U.S. intelligence apparatus, and prompted a global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist – Nicholas Brody. While Saul is trying to keep the CIA from imploding around him as he assumes the role of acting director, Carrie gets swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for Brody’s whereabouts. F. Murray Abraham and Sarita Choudhury have already been bumped up to series regular status for the coming season.
Guests will include Joanna Merlin (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) as Grandma Lois, Jessica Brody’s mother; Nazanin Boniadi (How I Met Your Mother) as Fara, a capable analyst despite her young appearance; Amy Morton (Boss) as Carrie Mathison’s CIA appointed attorney Erin Kimball; Gary Wilmes (Louie) as Dr. Richardson, a psychiatrist helping Dana Brody cope with recent events; Sam Underwood (The Last Keepers) as Leo, a new friend of Dana’s with a troubled past; Tracy Letts (Prison Break) as Senator Andrew Lockhart, the powerful, authoritative and commanding Committee Chairman; Lawrence Clayton (Dreamgirls, The Big C) as Admiral Jim Pennington, the President’s National Security Advisor; and Pedro Pascal (Graceland) as Majority Counsel David Portillo, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
The third season of Homeland premieres Sunday, September 29th at 9:00 on Showtime.
