“Homeland” brings Fumusa back into the Showtime fold, as he starred on “Nurse Jackie” for all seven seasons, playing Kevin Peyton. His other TV credits include guest spots on “Elementary,” “Blue Bloods” and recently “BrainDead” on CBS, and his film credits include Will Smith’s “Focus” and Michael Bay’s “13 Hours.” He is repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment.
