Saw 3D and Boondock Saints star Sean Patrick Flanery, pictured above right, has been tapped for a major recurring role on the upcoming eighth season of Showtime’s hit serial killer drama “Dexter,” reports Deadline, while EW adds that veteran British actress Charlotte Rampling (The Avengers,” Stardust Memories, The Verdict, The Duchess) has also landed a key role.
Flanery will play Jacob Elroy, the ex-cop owner of a private investigation company in Miami. Rampling will play a neuro-psychiatrist who specializes in working with young psychopaths and profiling criminals in unorthodox ways. Her role has a significant impact on next season’s story.
Earlier this month, Showtime’s entertainment president David Nevins would not say whether “Dexter”‘s upcoming eighth season would be its last as had been widely expected before the veteran found creative rejuvenation and hit ratings highs in Season 7. “I think I will clarify before “Dexter” goes on the air for this next season (in June),” Nevins said. “There’s a clear end game in place.” It is unclear whether the Elroy character would be part of that end game.
