“Homeland” fan favorite Rupert Friend cast in new streaming series

Former Homeland actor, Rupert Friend, found himself a new home.

The fan favorite actor who played Peter Quinn for six seasons on Homeland is set to co-star in CBS’ Access series Strange Angel.

The fantasy drama series created by Black Swan’s Mark Heyman is based on George Pendle’s book of the same name. The series tells the story of Jack Parsons “a brilliant and ambitious blue-collar worker of 1930s Los Angeles who started as a janitor at a chemical factory but had fantastical dreams that led him to birth the unknown discipline of American rocketry. Along the way, he fell into a mysterious world that included sex magick rituals at night, and he became a disciple of occultist Aleister Crowley. Parsons used Crowley’s teachings of self-actualization to support his unimaginable and unprecedented endeavor to the stars.”

Friend will play Ernest Donovan, Parson’s neighbor, “A lost soul and drifter, Donovan pulls Parsons out of his humdrum existence and into a strange new religion that encourages its followers to pursue their deepest and darkest desires as a means of bending the world to their will.”
