Here's How Ben Savage Came To Play a Young Mandy Patinkin on 'Homeland'

There was a familiar face on screen last week when the penultimate episode of Homeland aired – Ben Savage.

The -year-old actor, who is best known for his role as Cory Matthews on Boy Meets World, portrayed a young version of Mandy Patinkin‘s Saul Berenson – but it wasn’t the first time he played a young version of one of Mandy‘s characters.

Ben also portrayed a young Jason Gideon on CBS’s Criminal Minds, where Mandy starred for three seasons.

“[We] went through so many discussions about how we would portray the Young Saul,” co-creator/executive producer Alex Gansa shared with TVLine. “There was some talk of trying to make Mandy (who is 67 in real life) look like he was in his late 20s, but we did some tests and it just wasn’t believable.”

After trying out his real life sons, who are not actors, they turned to Ben.

Alex added that “when Ben came in to read, the resemblance is so strong it felt like the smart thing to do. He just bears such an uncanny resemblance to Mandy.”

Homeland‘s series finale airs tonight, April 26 at 9/8c on Showtime.

Claire Danes Unveils the 'Homeland' Final Season Trailer at Showtime's TCA Panel

Claire Danes sits on stage while participating in the Homeland panel during Showtime’s portion of the TCA Winter Press Tour on Monday (January 13) in Pasadena, Calif.

The Emmy-winning actress was joined on the panel by her co-star Mandy Patinkin. They unveiled the trailer for the show’s final season, which will premiere on February 9.

The final season of Homeland finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) recovering from months of brutal confinement in a Russian gulag. Her body is healing, but her memory remains fractured – which is a problem for Saul (Patinkin), now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner (Beau Bridges). The top priority of Warner’s young administration is an end to the “forever war” in Afghanistan, and Saul has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations. But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies – and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den – one last time.

'Homeland' Gets New Final Season Premiere Date

Fans will have to wait a little longer than expected for the eighth and final season of Homeland.

The Showtime series – starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin – won’t premiere until February 9, 2020, the network announced on Friday (August 2).

Season seven ran from February to April 2018.

Homeland is an ambitious series, especially in its final season,” Showtime entertainment president Gary Levine said on Friday at TCA (via THR). “[Showrunner] Alex [Gansa] wants to go out proudly, and he’s going to. That has involved production in multiple countries and at times in places that have some issues.”

“It just takes time,” Gary added. “There have been no missteps here; it’s been a relatively smooth process but a very ambitious production schedule that has taken more time than we thought it would. One of the things that we do at Showtime [is a strategy that] we’d rather have it good than fast.”

Production on Homeland‘s final 12 episodes of season eight is currently taking place in Morocco.
