“Homeland” actress Claire Danes spent her evenings in Israel bar hopping in Tel Aviv after shooting the pilot to Showtime’s “Homeland” according to the Forward.  Danes told Conan O’Brien what a “party town” Tel Aviv is, remarking:

“it’s very stressful there…it’s rather fraught, and people are rather tense and they need to blow off some steam – and they do, they do!”

“Homeland” actually takes place in Iraq, but Israel acted as the preferred shooting local for the pilot. 

Hum, fun nights in Iraq versus Tel Aviv…tough choice!
