'Homeland' Star Makes Muslim Joke To Obama But Is It a Joke?

I tried watching a few episodes of the TV series "Homeland" but just never got into it. However I recently learned that President Barack Obama is quite a fan of Showtime's terrorism thriller.

But that may change after this:

NewsBusters, 13 Nov 2012, 'Homeland' Star Makes Muslim Joke To Obama

After what Damian Lewis inscribed on Barack Obama's DVD box set of Showtime's hit series Homeland, the President might no longer be such a fan of the show.

On the British program The Jonathan Ross Show Saturday, the Emmy-winner said he wrote a Muslim joke to Obama on the gift (see video below).

Lewis told Ross that the program "became an even bigger hit when the President said it's his favorite show."

As a result, he was invited to the White House for dinner getting seated at the same table as Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron.

At the end of the evening, Teamsters for Obama asked him to sign a box set of Homeland DVDs to give to the President.

"[Co-star] Claire Danes had written something really lovely and sweet saying, 'I was a fan of yours long before you were a fan of ours,'" Lewis said. "I thought, 'That's really stylish.'"

So he needed to "think of something really great, something classy" himself, and finally settled on, "'From one Muslim to another,' in an indelible Sharpie. I couldn't take it back."


The fact that Obama is a fan of the show is understandable - what's not to like: Damian Lewis plays Nicholas Brody, a respected member of Congress who is secretly a Muslim and now threatens the United States.
