TV: ‘Dexter’ Gains One More Regular for Fifth Season

April Lee Hernandez has landed what Entertainment Weekly calls the last new recurring role of “Dexter”‘s upcoming fifth season. The actress — best known for her supporting work in ’07′s Freedom Writers and as Nurse Inez on “ER” — will play a new cop (presumably) working in Miami Metro’s homicide department. Hernandez joins fellow season 5 newbies Julia Stiles (as Dex’s new pal), Maria Doyle Kennedy (as an Irish nanny), and Shawn Hatosy (as the latest villain), alongside star Michael C. Hall as a like-able Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer of criminals who he believes have escaped justice.
