Showtime’s “Dexter” appears to be picking up steam in it’s casting department with shooting for season 6 starting tomorrow. Veteran actor Billy Brown who just came off of FX’s critically acclaimed “Lights Out” will star as Detective Mike Cutler who has transfered for reasons unknown to Miami Metro. It seems as though Mike Cutler might be evoking Sgt. Doakes; Dexters former nemesis on the squad. Casting description is Cutler is that he is a no nonsense kind of guy, and we have also heard talk that someone new on the force may not like Dexter from the start. Let’s hope that it’s no just a rehash of Doakes. Doakes 2.0 isn’t new territory.
Regardless, the new cast which started just Colin Hanks and Mos Def appears to be filling out now and just in time too. I have to admit that with just Hanks and Def, I thought the new cast seemed kind of small time. Since season 3 Dexter has managed to get at least one higher profile actor for the show(S3-Jimmy Smits, S4-John Lithgow, S5-Julia Stiles) but now with the addition of Edward James Olmos in a previously post, I think we could be seeing a great season’s cast really come together.
