Omar Metwally

  1. Adam Rayner, Tyrant, TV, 2014-  .     First choice for the Middle East take of The Godfather from the Homeland writer-producer, Howard Gordon, wasn’t Mid East enough. With a name like a diary notation, Metwally was an Egyptian-American.  But this Omar was no Sharif. Then, UK actor Rayner was adjudged perfect, if a tad young, for a despot’s Americanised son, Bassam Al Fayeed – now known as Barry, like a certain Barack Obama before him.
