    Didn’t saw Life of Pi. Heard it’s a great movie and very emotional. Still don’t know when the new season of Homeland begins but I know it’s going to start in the Fall.

      October 5 is the earliest Homeland can premiere. October 12 if Showtime does not air Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan over Labor Day Weekend.

    Suraj is a good role model for the young Asians . Happy for him. I hope he’ll get better and bigger roles in the future.

    This is great news. Loved the film Life of Pi and Suraj Sharma was excellent in it. Can’t wait for Homeland Season 4.
