Guest Interview August 21, 2013
Mandy Patinkin

Actor Mandy Patinkin is in the red chair. Mandy was just 26 when he played the vengeance-seeking, sword-swinging Spaniard, Inigo Montoya, in 'The Princess Bride'. And just like his character he knew what it felt like to lose a father too soon; which meant the revenge theme had personal meaning for him. Throughout his career, Mandy's never been afraid to tackle complex characters, as he did in 'Chicago Hope' and in 'Criminal Minds'. In fact, Mandy's battled to maintain a career on his terms, which is why he's thrilled to be playing CIA chief Saul Berenson on 'Homeland': a show that bravely holds a mirror to our times.
