Who is more dangerous? A rescued POW Marine who may be plotting a terrorist attack on U.S. soil as he makes an uneasy return to his home and family? Or an emotionally frayed CIA agent whose suspicions of the returning war hero prompt her to cross a line, thus endangering herself, friends and colleagues? That dilemma is a key driving force behind "Homeland," a new Showtime drama that feeds off of the distrust and paranoia of the 9/11 attacks and its aftermath, even a decade later.

Claire Danes covers the August issue of Vogue magazine and she's candidly sharing exactly what she thinks about being a Hollywood actress. "I always have the fear that I won't be able to do it, because I am convinced that it left me and I don't know how I managed it before," the "Homeland" star tells the fashion tome. "You just hold out for those rare moments when you feel a real fusion with this imagined person. It's really like surfing. You get that wave and think, All right, I can be in freezing-cold water at 5:00 a.m. in the hopes that I will get one. And maybe you get three of those a year.

Stephen Colbert has made a career out of conducting uncomfortable interviews, but on Thursday he brought new meaning to the term "cringe-worthy" when he sat down with former intelligence official Philip Mudd. Mudd, who has served as the deputy director of the CIA's counter-terrorist center and as a senior intelligence advisor at the FBI, stopped by the show to talk about his new book, "Takedown: Inside the Hunt for Al Qaeda. " Let's just say he's no Saul Berenson. The conversation began pleasantly enough, with Mudd discussing the changes to Al Qaeda over the past 12 years and emphasizing the importance of human informants in the fight against terrorism. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times But then Colbert made a joke about "Homeland," and, well, things got awkward very quickly.

Claire Danes made sure to thank her baby daddy Sunday night while accepting her Emmy for lead actress in a series. But when it comes to the actual child growing inside her, the “Homeland” actress isn't so sure her offspring will find her win all that exciting. “I think it's going to be some time before my child cares at all about this, if ever,” the 33-year-old actress, who plays a hyper-watchful CIA agent in the Showtime drama, told reporters backstage. Motioning to her baby bump, she added: “This person may not care, but I do.” Maybe POTUS does too?

The Emmys red carpet race doesn't officially kick off until Sunday afternoon, but the fashion show really started in L.A. over weekend, with a swirl of pre-awards-show parties and photo ops. The best looks of the weekend captured the fun, flirty 1950s vibe running through fashion right now. That meant dresses with short or tea-length full skirts and festive prints. (At fashion week, one of the most popular looks among editors and bloggers in the front row was a very Audrey Hepburn-looking white, button-down shirt tucked into a full, knee-length or below skirt.)

"Project Runway's" Heidi Klum is on the February cover of Marie Claire and inside she talks about her divorce from Seal ("It's not what I wanted...but it's not a real problem"), marrying again ("I don't think so") and younger lovers (“I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes. Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I'm turning 40 next year; I don't think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.” The magazine is out Jan. 15, and "Project Runway" returns for an 11th season on Jan. 24. [Marie Claire]
