The Boyertown Area Times - - LOCAL NEWS - Spot­light PR Com­pany

Pottstown na­tive and Kutz­town Uni­ver­sity al­umn Kyle Klaus heads to the TAC Team for the Sea­son 6 premiere of the award-win­ning Show­time thriller, “Home­land,” air­ing on Sun­day, Jan. 15.

Home­land picks up in New York City sev­eral months af­ter Car­rie Mathi­son (Claire Danes) thwarted a ter­ror­ist at­tack in Ber­lin. Now liv­ing in Brook­lyn, Car­rie is work­ing at a foun­da­tion that pro­vides aid to Mus­lims liv­ing in the U.S. The sea­son will be­gin im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and con­tin­ues through­out the trans­fer of power on In­au­gu­ra­tion Day. Klaus steps into the sto­ry­line dur­ing the sea­son open­ing episode ti­tled ‘Fair Game,’ as part of a TAC Team called into ac­tion hunt­ing down hos­tiles.

Klaus was ex­cited at the op­por­tu­nity, adding, “I felt ex­tremely hon­ored to be work­ing on such a highly ac­claimed se­ries with this tal­ented cast and crew. The writ­ers and cre­ators have done an amaz­ing job with this show through­out the years.

“And, fi­nally all those years learn­ing the proper use of firearms from my father, grow­ing up in Penn­syl­va­nia, have paid off.”

This marks Klaus’s sec­ond ap­pear­ance on Show­time.

He re­cently emerged in an episode of the net­work’s pop­u­lar se­ries “Bil­lions.” In ad­di­tion, this ris­ing ac­tor ap­peared on the big screen in the ro­man­tic­com­edy in­die film, “My Bak­ery in Brook­lyn,” as part of the Marché du Film at the 2016 Cannes Film Fes­ti­val.

On the fes­ti­val cir­cuit, he re­ceived con­sid­er­able at­ten­tion for his lead­ing role in di­rec­tor Cody Blue Snider’s award-win­ning dra­matic short, “All That Re­mains,” about a World War II veteran suf­fer­ing from de­men­tia.
