Mandy Patinkin Kills Time On 'Homeland' Set By Mooning Actors

Days on TV sets can be very long, especially for the actors. How does Mandy Patinkin kill time on set of "Homeland"? By dropping trou and mooning fellow actors. According to Vulture, Patinkin admitted to mooning "Homeland's" Rupert Friend.

"I mooned Rupert once," Patinkin told Vulture. "It was a long day, and I needed something to just get through the next few hours, and there we were. There was some reason for me to just go like, 'Oh God, let me just moon you.'"

Friend hinted at Patinkin's antics in November 2012
. "And Mandy did something really quite inappropriate, which I’m not going to divulge," he told Vulture. "But put it this way, you wouldn’t expect it in a room full of consenting adults. While singing."

Yep, Patinkin sings on the "Homeland" set, often with Damian Lewis.

It seems mooning -- albeit accidental -- can help bring levity to some intense sets. Evan Peters flashed Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson on "American Horror Story: Asylum."

"He flashed us. I got a whole view of his nut sack," Paulson told The Huffington Post. "[T]here are worse things to look at than Evan Peters from behind, I gotta say. I mean, Jessica and I blew a couple takes, we were laughing so hard because we just looked at each other and thought, 'What the hell are we doing?!' We're looking at these bare asses of these people and I'm handing her canes from the closet."

The "Homeland" Season 2 finale airs Sun., Dec. 16 at 10 p.m. EST on Showtime.
