Homeland star Damian Lewis is delighted rapper Jay Z boosted his street cred by name-checking him in a new song.

The 99 Problems hitmaker mentions Lewis in F.U.T.W., a track from his recent album Magna Carta... Holy Grail, in which he raps, "Feel like a stranger in my own land/ Got me feeling like Brody in Homeland".

Lewis, who plays prisoner of war-turned-Congressman Nicholas Brody in the hit drama series, loves the honour, telling Esquire magazine, "It's one of the coolest things that's ever happened to me. My natural habitat is quite a long way from, you know, a gangster rapper. So the fact I've somehow straddled popular culture to find myself name-checked (is great)."
