That headline might be a little too sensationalist (JUST A LITTLE), but "Homeland's" Damian Lewis, who plays Nick Brody, did actually once sign a "Homeland" box set with the inscription, "From one Muslim to another" for President Obama.
Here's the backstory:
In an interview yesterday with Britain's Jonathan Ross, Lewis tells of the time he was asked to go to a White House dinner with the president, who counts "Homeland" as his favorite show on TV. To Lewis's surprise, he didn't just get a quick handshake with Barry O.—he was actually seated at a table directly across from the president (and British prime minister David Cameron). Obama proceeds to tell him how he sneaks away from Michelle to watch the show in the Oval Office. Which must mean... Yes... I just had an incredible image of Obama sitting at the Resolute Desk, pretending to do work, while instead watching that scene from Season One when Brody beat off on his wife.
Anyway. Obama asks Lewis if he could sign a box set of the show, to which Lewis complies with a joke poked at Obama's birther conspiracy theorists: "From one Muslim to another," he writes in Sharpie. It was only after he sent off the box to the president that it hit him, "Hey, he might not actually find this as ironically funny as I do."
The story starts at the 6-minute mark (PSY is also there for some reason). But if you're a "Homeland" die-hard, the entire interview, which is made about 3,000 times better by Lewis's British accent, is worth a watch.
