Homeland star Damian Lewis has been invited to the White House for dinner with President Barack Obama.
The British actor revealed last month the politician is a huge fan of the drama series, and now it has emerged Lewis and his wife are heading to Washington, D.C. next week to share a meal with Obama and First Lady Michelle.

Lewis tells U.K. chat show host Graham Norton, “It turns out it is his favorite show. But the big news is that he has invited me to the White House for dinner.

“I am going with Helen my wife to dinner next Wednesday. I am going to fly to Washington, have dinner and fly back. There will probably be a thousand of his closest friends but I don’t care. I am going.”
