With the teaser landing last week, Showtime is beginning to cast up the forthcoming sixth season of “Dexter”.
Colin Hanks (son of Tom Hanks) has landed a role most actors would kill for as sources confirm to TVLine that the “Mad Men” alum is joining the cast of “Dexter” for a major Season 6 arc.
Like with most of the Showtime’s drama’s past guest stars (e.g. John Lithgow, Jimmy Smits), the specifics of Hanks’ role are being kept under insanely tight wraps.
If Hanks turns out to be an adversary of Dex’s, it’s unlikely he’ll fit the mold of past baddies such as Trinity and the Ice Truck Killer, given what Showtime president David Nevins recently told TVLine about the show’s coming season. “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.”
