Edward James Olmos is set to join the cast of “Dexter”. Olmos is the first Latino addition to the upcoming and much awaited season of Showtime’s serial killer drama.
Oscar nominee (first Latino to receive the honor), Golden Globe and Emmy winner Edward James Olmos will play a “brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies,” through the sixth season of Dexter.
No further details have been given, but the addition of rapper Mos (formerly Mos Def) as a “hardened ex-con who claims to have found religion yet seems to continually find himself surrounded by violence,” and the upcoming season’s tagline “All hell breaks loose,” certainly suggest the sixth season might deal with the usual issues of morality, now through a religious perspective.
Could Edward James Olmos be the next Trinity Killer? The next Lundy?
Details will surely surface as the show wraps up production this summer; we can’t wait to know who is going to play “Jamie” described as “an outgoing and fun Latina in her mid-20s, this Florida native relocates to Miami for grad school” and just what twisted happenings await blood splatter analyst Dexter Morgan this sixth season airing in September.
