THE TREMENDOUSLY interesting “Homeland” on Showtime is one of the must see shows on TV. This story is for publicity purposes, but I’ll bite. The show is worthy of all attention it can garner.
“I went to shoot a project in Toronto last year and I still had a full beard and my hair was a little bit longer, and I was scruffy – I mean, I was afraid of getting on a plane with myself,” joked Negahban, who had to go through a customs line in New York’s LaGuardia Airport. “I was going through the line and the agent locked eyes with me and I thought ‘Oh, here we go again.’”
“Where are you coming from?”
“Where are you going?”
“What do you do for a living?”
“I was so tired and I said, ‘Well, lately I’ve been playing a most-wanted terrorist on TV’ – and the minute the word ‘terrorist’ came out of my mouth, even the other people standing in line began looking,” Negahban said.
It was only then, he said, that the Customs and Border Protection officer realized who he really was.
