Over his remarkable career on the small screen, Beau Bridges
has garnered 16 Emmy Award nominations, including three wins. This year, with his recurring role on “Homeland
,” Bridges is well-positioned to add a 17th nomination to his awards resume, this time in Best Guest Drama Actor.
Bridges, portraying Vice President Ralph Warner, appeared in four episodes of the Showtime series this season: “Andante”; “Clarity”; “All In
”; and the season finale, “Paean to the People.” Warner, who is on unsteady terms with his boss, the increasingly unpopular President Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel
), finds himself lobbied by Senator Sam Paley (Dylan Baker
), an opponent of Keane’s, to help invoke the 25th Amendment to remove her from office. Warner indeed relieves a flabbergasted Keane of her duties but their antipathy, and Warner’s alliance with Paley, prove short-lived.
