Earlier this week we heard Michael C. Hall himself comment on the forthcoming 7th season of Dexter and today we learn some exciting casting news about the show. Actor Ray Stevenson has been added to the season 7 cast of the show. According to reports, Stevenson will play a bad guy in the upcoming season … er, or at least one of the bad guys … but will he be THE main bad guy? Click below to learn more about his reported involvement on Dexter.
This is really exciting casting: A Rome fan favorite and big screen action star is going to face off with everybody’s favorite serial killer. Ray Stevenson has joined the highly anticipated upcoming seventh season of Showtime’s Dexter. The tough-guy actor who’s appeared in movies like Thor, The Three Musketeers and Punisher: War Zone will have a recurring role next season playing the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate. Stevenson will also appear in the upcoming Thor sequel and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Dexter fans were left with a stunning cliffhanger last season that set into motion the show’s end game. Dexter Morgan was discovered by his sister Debra in the middle of finishing off his latest victim — right after Debra realized she has some rather non-sisterly feelings for him. The seventh season is expected to be the second-to-final round of the acclaimed hit, though that could still change. Dexter returns Sunday, Sept. 30.
I am really excited for the new season of Dexter, primarily because of how complicated life will be for our dear Dexter. Not only does he have to contend with the reality that his sister Deb now knows he’s a killer but he will soon have to deal with her newfound romantic feelings for him. Yeah, it’s complicated. Add to that the usual mix of intrigue fostered by the fact that Dexter is a serial killer and he has bad guys to serial kill. I don’t know Ray Stevenson’s work but I trust the folks at Dexter … they know what they’re doing. This is gonna be a good season, at least … I hope it will be. I can’t wait to find out who else will be joining the cast next season.
