Earlier this month, we first teased a new addition coming to “Dexter” for season 7 in the form of a tough blue-collar worker with a bit of a violent past … and now we know just who will be the face behind this recurring role.
According to reports, Matt Gerald (not to be confused with Matt Giraud of “American Idol” fame) has been booked to play the role. The actor bears a slight resemblance to another famed tough-guy in Jason Statham, and has appeared in such work already as “The Shield” and “Avatar.”
Gerald does join a guest cast that already has a number of names — including Ray Stevenson as an Eastern European gangster, Jason Gedrick as a nightclub owner, and Swedish actress Katie Winter as a dancer at this club that somehow gets involved in an investigation that takes place at the establishment.
Season 7 of “Dexter” (which could end up being the second-to-last season of the show) is set to premiere September 30. Just in case you haven’t checked out the bloody teaser trailer just yet, you can do so below.
