The Seventh Season of “Dexter” starts airing on September 30th at 9pm ET/PT, and we’re starting to get a glimpse of the shape it might take. Now that his sister, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), knows he’s a killer – and is in love with him – Season Seven was already promising to deviate from the formula a bit.
We already know that Ray Stevenson booked a multiepisode arc playing Isaac, the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate. Now Deadline is reporting, “Jason Gedrick is joining Season 7 of Dexter in a multi-episode arc. He will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen’s club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case in the Showtime drama. Production on Season 7 begins in May in Los Angeles.”
Jason Gedrick was most recently seen in HBO’s “Luck”, so it’s not like he hasn’t been working. But to me, he’ll always be Doug Masters – the scrappy underage fighter pilot ho straps a cassette deck to his thigh while flying jets, hanging out with Chappy Sinclair and rescuing his dad from evil despots. Tragically – his character was killed in the opening moments of Iron Eagle 2.
Anyway, “Dexter”. As good as it’s ever been, right?
