Just when you thought the cast of Dexter couldn't get any better they go ahead and add Battlestar Galactica star James Edward Olmos to the cast. How freakin' cool is that!? It's revealed is that he will play a brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies. It would be incredible if this character turned out to be one of the villains this season. Olmos joins Colin Hanks and Mos Def who were also most recently cast in the the sixth season of the series.
David Nevins, Showtime's President, previously revealed there will be multiple villains in season 6. Here is what he had to say:
It is not [about] one big bad. There's one interesting story that will move through the season, and it will be cast very interestingly, but it's not exactly that one person.
Production on Dexter begins May 25th in Los Angeles and will premiere on Showtime this fall.
Dexter stars Michael C. Hall as a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. The show also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas, and James Remar.
