Mandy Pantinkin stars in "Homeland" on Showtime as a veteran CIA Division Chief who is Carrie's (Claire Danes) boss and mentor.

In his 1980 Broadway debut, Mandy Pantinkin won a Tony Award for his role as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Evita" and was nominated in 1984 for his starring role as George in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, "Sunday in the Park with George." In 1991 he returned to Broadway in the Tony Award-winning musical "The Secret Garden" and in 1997 played a sold–out engagement of his one-man show, "Mandy Patinkin in Concert," with all profits benefiting five charitable organizations. Mandy's other solo concerts, "Dress Casual," "Celebrating Sondheim" and "Mamaloshen," have been presented both on Broadway and Off. He recently celebrated the 20th Anniversary of performing his solo concerts with a two-week run of all of his concerts in rep at New York's Public Theater, the very space he began his concert career twenty years ago. Mandy continued the celebration with a critically acclaimed two-week run of "Mandy Patinkin in Concert" in London's West End at the Duke of York's Theatre. January 2010 marks Mandy's stage debut at Yale Rep in the world premiere of "Compulsion," written by Rinne Gross and directed by Oskar Eustis. Other stage credits include playing Prospero in "The Tempest" with Classic Stage Company, "The Wild Party" (2000 Tony nomination), "Falsettos," "The Winter's Tale," "The Knife," "Leave It to Beaver Is Dead," "Rebel Women," "Hamlet," "Trelawney of the 'Wells'," "The Shadow Box," "The Split," "Savages," and "Henry IV, Part I."

Feature film credits include "Everybody's Hero," "The Choking Man," "Piñero," "The Adventures of Elmo In Grouchland," "Lulu on the Bridge,""Men with Guns," "The Princess Bride," "Yentl" (1984 Golden Globe nomination), "The Music of Chance," "Daniel," "Ragtime," "Impromptu," "The Doctor," "Alien Nation," "Dick Tracy," "The House on Carroll Street," "True Colors," "Maxie," and "Squanto: Indian Warrior." He won a 1995 Emmy Award (as well as a Golden Globe nomination) for his critically acclaimed performance in the CBS series, "Chicago Hope," and recently starred in the CBS series "Criminal Minds" as FBI profiler Jason Gideon and in the Showtime Original Series "Dead Like Me" as the reaper Rube Sofer. His other television appearances include the role of Kenneth Duberstein in the Showtime film "Strange Justice," playing Quasimodo opposite Richard Harris in the TNT film presentation of "The Hunchback" and a film version of Arthur Miller's "Broken Glass" for BBC/WGBH-Boston, and episodes of "The Larry Sanders Show" (1996 Emmy nomination), "Law & Order," "Boston Public," "Touched by an Angel" and "The Simpsons."

In 1989, Mandy began his concert career at Joseph Papp's Public Theater. This coincided with the release of his first solo album entitled "Mandy Patinkin." Since then he has toured extensively, appearing to sold–out audiences across the United States, Canada, London and Australia, performing songs from writers including Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Randy Newman, Adam Guettel and Harry Chapin, among others. In 1990 he released his second solo album entitled "Mandy Patinkin In Concert: Dress Casual" on CBS Records. His 1994 recording, "Experiment," on the Nonesuch label, features songs from nine decades of popular music from Irving Berlin to Alan Menken. Also recorded on the Nonesuch label are "Oscar & Steve" and "Leonard Bernstein's New York." In 1998 he debuted his most personal project, "Mamaloshen," a collection of traditional, classic and contemporary songs sung entirely in Yiddish. The recording of "Mamaloshen" won the "Deutschen Schallplattenpreis" (Germany's equivalent of the Grammy Award). In 2001, Nonesuch Records released "Kidults," a collection of beloved songs, designed — as the title suggests — for the kid in every adult. And, in 2002, Nonesuch Records released the live recording of "Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim," a figurative journey through Sondheim's music and lyrics. In October 2007, Mandy debuted his newest concert with dear friend Patti LuPone and they begin touring their show "An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin" throughout the US, Australia and New Zealand.

Mandy resides in New York City with his wife, actress and writer Kathryn Grody, and their two sons.
