Emmy-winner Damian Lewis plays a war hero/terrorist/CIA pawn on Showtime’s addictive drama “Homeland,” and it looks like Nick Brody’s double (or triple?)-crossing ways even trip up the actor who plays him.
Because Lewis MAY have revealed a huge “Homeland” twist during his guest appearance Wednesday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
DeGeneres, a huge “Homeland” fan, pumped Lewis for information about the show as we head into the final three episodes of Season 2, and he may have dropped a major bombshell about a plot point that hasn’t aired yet. The British actor was mentioning that he too watches the show excitedly each week, but he’s two episodes behind as the U.K. airing is behind the U.S. broadcasts, so that may have contributed to the possible slip-up. Of course, he could just be playing us (like his character does so amazingly on the show), after all, he did just win the Emmy for Best Actor this year.
So fair warning to fans of the show — SPOILER ALERT — there may or may not be a fatal reveal in the segment featured above.
Watch the clip above if you’re curious about what Damian Lewis said. And if that’s not tantalizing enough for you, reason #2 is to find out why Ellen is giving Damian her panties at the end of the clip.
“Homeland” airs Sundays at 10/9c on Showtime.
