Are the Heroes

WE FOUND ABU NAZIR!!! (or at least the guy who plays him on "Homeland") ... and last night, he made a very interesting comment about terrorists.

TMZ came face to face with Navid Negahban in Hollywood last night -- who seems to be a much nicer guy than the Osama Bin Laden-esque bad guy he plays on the hit Showtime series.

So, when we asked what it's like to play such a hated terrorist, we were a little shocked by his answer:

"Depends on how you look at it," Navid said ... adding, "Sometimes the terrorists in other countries are all the heroes."

He's probably right ... but it's a dicey thing to say in the US of A.
