Southland Star Gets A Role On Dexter
More casting news for the new season of Dexter! Following the news that Julia Stiles is set to join the series, rumor has it, Southland star Shawn Hatosy has been cast to play a role in the fifth season of the Showtime series.
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello posted the news, stating that Hatosy has been booked for a multi-episode arc in Dexter. Ausiello speculated that Hatosy, who plays a cop in Southland would be playing the role of a “no-nonsense FBI agent,” but later updated his article on the word of a source close to the show that states that Hatosy is playing “a bad guy.”
That probably means the FBI thing is out but then again, in a series where the hero murders people regularly, is an FBI agent automatically assumed to be a good guy? Maybe. Maybe not. Most likely, when they say bad guy, they mean someone whose blood will end up on one of Dexter’s slides. If that’s the case, we may get to see Hatosy dressed in nothing but a table and some saran wrap.
And, for those of you concerned about how this role might conflict with Hatosy’s work on Southland, rest assured, he should be done with his Dexter work in time to start production on Southland’s ten-episode season.
