Homeland - Season 3 - Interview with Jared Ward

Last week, I had an opportunity to do a short interview with Jared Ward, a recurring actor in the upcoming episodes of "Homeland."

He will play the role of Yousef Turani, a friend from Brody's past.

As you know, season 3 set in the aftermath of a terrorist attack at the CIA's building. Carrie is blamed for the CIA's failing and he's pulled in a psychic clinic by Saul, who's having trouble with his marriage. Nicholas Brody is far away from USA, in Venezuela, where he can be safe (however, it's more like a prison than a heavenly place), while his family struggle to start a new life. With Abu Nazir dead in the previous season, Carrie and Sal must lure a senior Iranian Intelligence officer into a CIA asset.

Here's what he shared with us.

The plot lines on Homeland are concealed until the episode, so I imagine nobody knows much about your character either. Are you allowed to tell us anything?
Indeed they are. Even in the audition process there were verbal and written NDAs. I feel like Quinn might have a good shot on me so I'd better stick to my promise. 

Do you enjoy that there's some secrecy behind the role?
I really do. I appreciate that they want to keep it a secret. Homeland is easily one of my favorite shows. Prior to getting the chance to work on it, I loved that I didn't know what or how they would get out of what preceded. I would talk.. Ok sometimes yell at my TV haha. Very gripping and never predictable. Love it. 

Does your character get in on the 'action' stuff? Any physical scenes in there for you?
Yes. there are some interesting situations ahead.  The masterminds behind the show have created such an intense storyline to the finale. My tv wasn't around this time so I started yelling at my script. I might have a problem here. 

How do you like playing the character? Is it satisfying?
Absolutely. I'm straight up honored to play the character. My brother has been in the military for 17 years now. From the research I did to having conversations with my bro there's always this feeling I had: these guys never seem to brag and never do it for themselves. Heroes. 

Did you work with Claire Danes or Mandy Patinkin?
Yes I got to work with both. It's funny, sometimes I get this new kid in high school feeling every time I hit my first day on a show. And with Damian, Claire and Mandy being the cool Seniors, they instantly made it seem like we'd been ditching classes for years.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
