Sean Patrick Flanery to Play Private Investigator on Dexter

at . Comments

Dexter has filled its two major Season 8 roles.

A very short while after news hit that Charlotte Rampling has been cast as a criminal profiler/neuro-psychiatrist, we can confirm that Sean Patrick Flanery will recur this summer on the Showtime hit as a private investigator named Jacob Elroy.

The actor (Breaking In, The Young and the Restless) will play a former cop who many believe will help track the killer of La Guerta.

Showtime has not yet committed to Dexter Season 8 being the final chapter of this story, but it has announced that the series will return in summer, as opposed to its regular fall time slot.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.


I HEART SPF!! He's been off our screens for far too long! Great actor and sexy as hell! Hope he becomes Dex's best buddy and confidante and lasts the final season/s lol


Good casting! He'll probably end up on Dex's table though.

Dexter Quotes

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.

[narrated, in reference to Doakes] My devil danced with his demon and the fiddler's tune is far from over.
