More Dexter Season 5 casting news
Just when we thought there'd been more than enough new people cast in the next Season of Dexter!
[SPOILER ALERT - If you don't want to know ANYTHING about season 5 casting, don't read on!]
It's just been announced by Showtime that the star of Robocop, Peter Weller, has been cast in the forthcoming season. He's set to play a troubled Miami Metro police officer who gets caught up in an internal affairs investigation. Apparently he's to appear in 8 of the season's 12 episodes so a pretty major role then.
What concerns me is the number of new people cast in quite major roles, does this mean they'll be trimming Showtime's wage bill by writing off one or two old characters (please LaGuerta just go now!)? Hopefully none of our favourite minor characters like Masuka will be in jeopardy of being axed. That said, it would make for some drama and we do like our Dexter drama, don't we?
