Brazilian actress Morena Baccrin, who you may know better from V or Firefly, just signed on for a starring role in Showtime's new political drama, Homeland.
The conspiracy theory series comes from the producing team behind 24 and follows Iraq war hero, Sgt. Nick Brody (Damien Lewis), and the CIA officer (Claire Danes) convinced that his rescue was a stunt and part of a greater, sinister plot. Baccarin will enter the picture as Brody's "intrepid and complicated wife," Jessica. While the buzz for this show has been on the lower side, the cast is rounding out nicely and the scenes Showtime released from the pilot are certainly intriguing. Now, if only they can steer clear of all the military conspiracy cliches. Production on the new series begins this month and we can look for the premiere this fall.
