Not long before beginning to film its 6th season, Homeland added two familiar faces to its already-impressive cast. Patrick Sabongui and Hill Harper with both have recurring roles in Showtime’s spy thriller series.

Sabongui will play a law professor at CUNY. EW reports that he will be an, “ardent advocate for the Muslim-American community”. You can also catch Sabongui in a regular role on The Flash as well as the all new Power Rangers movie.

Harper will be stepping in as the chief of staff for Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel)—the current president-elect. Harper has starred in Limitless, and has had roles on Covert Affairs and CSI: NY.

The sixth season of Homeland is expected to premiere in January. Season five ended with plenty suspense, including Carrie moving back to America. Season six events will be taking place between Election Day and Keane’s inauguration.
