Tuesday, March 25, 2014

The beard is back, after a few months away from the face of Mandy Patinkin, who now prepares for a new season of "Homeland," the enormously successful Showtime program that's mesmerized millions for a long while now. The New Yorker called him "a subtle actor," which minimizes the case. Mandy is a brilliant actor, credible down to the last word, mysterious, moving, and honest, and, as well, a remarkable singer, a theatrical figure, melancholy, and vigorously hilarious in much of his music.
