Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes attended the final season premiere event for Showtime’s “Homeland” at MoMa in NYC on February 4th. Check out the amazing pictures at our gallery:
Hugh Dancy is lawyering up.
The Hannibal vet is joining The Good Fight‘s upcoming fourth season in a major recurring role. The casting news was announced Sunday by series creators Robert and Michelle King at CBS All Access’ portion of the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour.
Dancy — who is coming off of a three-season run on Hulu’s The Path — will play Caleb, a former military officer who now works as an associate at the huge multi-national law firm that has acquired Reddick Boseman & Lockhart. However, his wit and decency threaten to make him a better fit with Diane and Co. than the overlords.
Dancy will next be seen acting opposite his real-life wife Claire Danes in a multi-episode arc on Showtime’s Homeland.
As we exclusively revealed last month, Season 4 of the Good Wife spinoff — which is slated to premiere in late winter/early spring — marks the return of franchise vet Zach Grenier in the role of David Lee. Michael J. Fox is also set to reprise his Good Wife role of Louis Canning on a guest star basis.
King recently revealed to TVLine that Season 4 will focus less on President Trump and more on the hell 45 hath wrought, legally speaking. “We’re going to comment more on what the current political situation is doing to the law, and some of that has to do with Trump directly but a lot of it has to do with the collateral damage of the dropping of present-day values and guidelines,” the EP previewed. “There’s a tendency that people have now of thinking subpoenas can be ignored, and we wanted to look at how it played out because so much of courtroom drama requires people following the rules. But what kind of courtroom drama do you have if [suddenly the rules don’t matter]?”

Homeland is going out with a bang with its eighth and final season… but viewers will just have to be patient.
Even though the spy thriller from Showtime and Channel 4 has been off-screens since mid-2018, its return has been delayed all the way until Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 9pm ET in the US at least.
At the TCA press tour on Friday (August 2), Showtime president Gary Levine blamed the delay on the hugely “ambitious” storyline for the season, rather than any trouble on set (via TVLine).
“[Showrunner Alex Gansa] wants to go out proudly, and that has involved production in multiple countries at times and in places that have some issues. It just takes time,” Levine explained.
“There have been no missteps. It’s been a relatively smooth process. But it’s a very ambitious production schedule and it has taken more time than we [anticipated].”
The first plot synopsis certainly seems to back up his explanation, as season eight will send Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) to Afghanistan to negotiate with the Taliban while not yet fully healed from her confinement in Russia.
Here’s the synopsis: “The final season of Homeland finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) recovering from months of brutal confinement in a Russian gulag. Her body is healing, but her memory remains fractured – which is a problem for Saul (Mandy Patinkin), now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges).
“The top priority of Warner’s young administration is an end to the ‘forever war’ in Afghanistan, and Saul has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations.
“But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies – and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den – one last time.”
The final season will also feature Claire Danes’s real-life husband Hugh Dancy joining the show as shrewd Washington consultant John Zabe, as well as True Blood‘s Sam Trammell as Vice President Benjamin Hayes.
OMG! Hugh was at the MasterChef Morroco, and he was speaking in french (almost passed out lol). We think it was recorded in february 2019. You can watch full episode by clicking play:

In this exclusive new clip from the Mindy Kaling movie, a group of men do their best to kiss the ring of a shrewd late-night host played by Thompson.
In the upcoming comedy Late Night, Emma Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, a shrewd late-night TV host who strikes fear in the hearts of all of her employees. She does as she pleases—until an exec pulls her aside and warns her that her show is coming to an end. Salvation arrives in the form of a new writer, Molly (played by Mindy Kaling, who also wrote Late Night), who infuses the show with a fresh sense of relevancy and self-awareness.
But in an exclusive new clip from the film, we see how things are going for Katherine before Molly arrives. In the clip, the late-night host is sitting down for an awkward meeting with her all-white, all-male writing staff. It quickly becomes clear that Katherine, who’s worked with some members of this writing staff for years, has no idea who any of them are—no matter how hard they try to position themselves on her good side. Take Tom (Veep alum Reid Scott), her monologue writer, who tries desperately to impress Katherine by noting that he’s “actually the youngest monologue writer in the history of the show.” Katherine’s blunt response? “Don’t care.”
Her solution to all of these men trying to kiss the ring is to . . . knock them down one more peg by calling them by numbers instead of their actual names. She literally goes around the room, forbidding them from calling each other their real names instead of their numbers whilst in her presence.
The writing staff on the show within the film is full of familiar faces even aside from Kaling, including John Early, Denis O’Hare, Hugh Dancy, and Paul Walter Hauser. Though Dancy’s character, Charlie, doesn’t get much play in this exclusive clip, it’s been revealed in the film’s charming full trailer that he is Molly’s love interest.
Late Night, directed by Nisha Ganatra, debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, where critics gave it warm reviews. Thompson in particular earned raves, with Vanity Fair’s own Richard Lawson touting Katherine Newbury as one of the actor’s best roles in years. Afterward, Amazon quickly snapped up the comedy for a hefty sum, a strong vote of confidence for its future box-office potential. Late Night hits theaters on June 7.
