With HBO putting Luck out of its misery earlier this year, that leaves one of the series’ stars to travel to another cable network for a high profile role. Showtime has announced that Jason Gedrick, who can also be seen in films like Iron Eagle, Promised Land and Backdraft, has landed a multi-episode arc in the forthcoming seventh season of Dexter. Though we don’t know the specifics of the story this season, Gedrick will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen’s club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case. This comes after Ray Stevenson has been cast in a role that will likely turn out to be some sort of adversary for Michael C. Hall as everyone’s favorite serial killer.
Hopefully this summer we’ll find out more about what Dexter will be encountering this season after the conclusion of the sixth season really shook things up between Dexter and his sister Deb, and will likely test the bonds of the brother and sister duo at the Miami Metro Police Department. Stay tuned for more updates on Dexter and our eager anticipation of the season premiere on September 30th at 9/8c. Check out the full press release after the jump.
