Mandy Patinkin’s versatility as a performer is so impressive that he can go from playing CIA Division Chief Saul Berenson on the gritty Showtime drama, “Homeland,” to headlining Tarrytown Music Hall with his cabaret show, “Dress Casual,” without missing a beat.
Golden Globe-nominated for his performance on “Homeland,” Patinkin told Newsday Westchester last week that it’s incredible that two of the Emmy Award-winning series’ biggest fans are American presidents.
"I was with [President] Clinton and President Obama at a fundraiser, and they both just went on and on about it," said Patinkin. "I was pretty excited."
