A new casting report for season 3 of Homeland revealed that some interesting characters will appear in upcoming episodes.

The report, published on Monday by SpoilerTV, features casting for the season's eighth episode. The casting directors are looking for actors to fill several roles, including a Persian man named Kourosh Sherazi; a young lawyer named Annabel, who will either be German or Slavic; a caregiver named Roxanne; a male mercenary; an Asian  female doctor and a female doctor's office technician.

One interesting potential element of the new season was also revealed Tuesday. In the official trailer for season 3 of Homeland, there is a glimpse at Carrie's (Claire Danes) notebook, featuring an array of notes related to Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban).

A quote from the notebook is visible on a freeze-frame from the trailer, which a fan captured. The quote reads, "You killed my son - prepare to die!"

Fans wondered whether the quote was a reference to the popular 1987 film The Princess Bride, which features Homeland cast member Mandy Patinkin's character saying the line, "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!"

When The Daily Beast asked the shows producers if the scribbling was intentional, executive producer Alex Gansa replied, "Of course it is!"

Gansa added that the show's producers did not expect to use the quote so prominently, initially.

"But the fact is that it looks so great, the physical representation of her mania, right there on the page. So there it is, right in front of your eyes."

It is unknown if the show will make any reference to the Princess Bride quote in season 3, but Gansa's comments seem to reflect that Carrie will continue to be obsessed with Brody and his case, to the point that she's making references to old movies to help piece together his ties to Al Queda.

Season 3 of Homeland will premiere Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
