Damian Lewis Signed Obama's 'Homeland' DVD Set With A Muslim Joke (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

President Barack Obama has made no secret that he's a fan of Showtime's "Homeland." Obama has been singing the Emmy-winning drama's praises since the first season and the cast and network have returned the love for the president.

While on "The Jonathan Ross Show," "Homeland" star Damian Lewis revealed that they sent Obama a signed DVD set, with each star adding a personal flavor to their signature.

"Claire Danes had written something really lovely and sweet saying, 'I was a fan of yours long before you were a fan of ours,'" Lewis said. Then he started racking his brain for what he should write. "I went, 'From one Muslim to another' in an indelible Sharpie. I couldn't take it back."

Lewis said he was writing emails for the next week, hoping the president understood his joke. Watch the clip below.
