I was blown away when I heard Idris Elba interviewed, he was in The Wire as Stringer Bell. I would have bet my house he grew up in a ghetto and was using it for the role. He remarked that he hid the fact he was British in the audition and they had no clue.

Dominic West on The Wire is British too!

He and Damian Lewis studied together.

Britons are more used to the American accent than we are to the British accent. Just listen to basically any British rock music.

Who was the actress that played Bridget in Bridget Jones' Diary?

She did well with the accent.

Mr. West's interview starts at 9.58.

And yes his American accent is awesome.

Of course it's just TV, so you have to accept implausibilties in the name of dramatic license, even a VP calling the shots on a major terrorist assassination operation (have we even seen so much as a photo of POTUS, or know if he/she is male or female?) But having POTUS in absentia for the VP's memorial service? Crazy.

Interesting point about the whereabouts of the President.

I assume there would be a more public State memorial for the VP that the POTUS would attend.

I got the impression that the Homeland memorial was for the benefit of the CIA community which the VP had previously led.

Yeah, good point. Curious about POTUS, though - have we seen him/her at all these two seasons?

Interesting 1st episode for season 3. It felt more like a transition episode to fill in the gap from when the whole world heard Brody's video.

Hopefully it will be building up to something good such as finally finding out where Brody is!

Is the subplot of Dana sending "nude" selfies necessary? revolve.gif

The scene with Quinn reminded me of this:

And, Schwazer, the technical term is "sexting." teacha.gif
