The Hollywood Reporter
Hot on the heels of the news that Colin Hanks has joined the cast of “Dexter” as a recurring character comes word that hip-hop artist turned actor Mos Def has also finalized a deal for a multi-episode arc during the sixth season of the series.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Def will play a hardened ex-con who claims to have found religion yet seems to continually find himself surrounded by violence. Michael C. Hall’s Dexter will reveal the truth of who he really is.
Production on the sixth season of the Showtime drama thriller begins in June with an eye toward a fall bow. Mos Def joins Colin Hanks — who will appear in all 12 episodes — as one of the upcoming season’s villains. Hanks will play Travis, Dexter’s main nemesis and a highly intelligent ancient artifacts expert who is linked to a series of grisly murders in Miami.
At this point it is unclear in how many episodes Def will appear. But he is one of multiple recurring characters who will populate the show after the dispatching of Season Five’s guest stars including Jonny Lee Miller, Julia Stiles, and Peter Weller.
