Edward James Olmos Cast In “Dexter’, Frak Yeah!

I miss Eddie James Olmos and his utter and unrepentanting ownage as motherfuckin’ Billy Adama, savior of the human race. Oh Battlestar, how I weep for you when no one is looking. Good news!, for my pathetic ass. Motherfucking Edward James Olmos is joining a pretty outrageous cast for the next season of Dexter.


The latest addition to the cast of Dexter‘s sixth season is a great one: Edward James Olmos has signed on to play “a brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies.” Colin Hanks and Mos Def are other recent additions to the core cast of the show, which begins shooting on May 25 and will premiere in the fall, likely in mid to late September. Being the definition of a good sport, Mr. Olmos tweeted right after the news broke: “It’s true… I’m coming for you Dexter….

Fuck yeah! Scratch that. Frak yeah! I had no idea that Colin Hanks and Mos Def were in it as well. This is shaping up to be just what I needed to rejuvenate my interest in Dexter after last season’s “LOL, character development? STFU!” moments where pretty much everything reverted back to how it was at the beginning of the season.

I’m intrigued.
