There's less than two weeks until the 2013 Emmys, and ET is breaking down your contenders. On now to the Lead Actor in a Drama category.

Sgt. Brody has been a name-making role for British actor Damian Lewis. He, along with Claire Danes and the rest of the Homeland production team, were the far and away favorites of last year's award season, taking home six Emmy's, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama for Lewis.

Through it all, the stakes only got higher for Lewis and Danes' characters in the show's second season, which they hope will be just as revered by the voting committee.

Perhaps a good sign for Lewis is the strong anticipation by audiences for the upcoming third season of the Showtime program. If Homeland is once again the show everyone is talking about, then Lewis just might boast one more statuette.
