Noah Emmerich On 'The Americans' And Stan Beeman's Quiet War

A good portion of the taut first season of "The Americans" revolved around a simple question: What's going on in the mind of Stan Beeman (played by Noah Emmerich)?

The FBI agent has been drawn deeply into the dangerous machinations of the Cold War, which is at its height in 1981, the year the show is set. Over the course of the season, the quietly tenacious Beeman has become ensnared in the plots of several Soviet spies, including a pair of undercover agents who, unbeknownst to him, are his neighbors on an unassuming suburban street. In Wednesday's season finale, American and Russian agents set a series of high-stakes events in motion, and the dogged Beeman is at the heart of every scheme.
