This behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming season of Colin Hanks as a creepy religion professor and his creepier disciple. It’s not clear what their plans are but we can see that it involves big knives and the name of God. That’s a bad combo. Also, joining this season is Mos (formerly Mos Def) as Brother Sam. At first he’ Dexter‘s target before a common interest reveals itself. Miami Metro is bringing in a moody new detective played by Billy Brown. He’s a no-nonsense Chicago native who sees working homicide as a business and doesn’t have time for department hijinks or detectives dressing like members of Smashmouth. Boy, he picked the wrong town.

And then there’s Aimee Garcia, who plays Batista’s hot sister and new nanny to Harrison. More importantly, she can be seen in a scene with Deb saying, “I came in here to give you a kiss goodnight. Not to look at pictures of dead bodies.” A) Fire that nanny. B) Is Deb in a same-sex relationship this season? Or perhaps a polyamorous couple?? I can so see Quinn being into that.

The new season of Dexter premieres October 2nd on Showtime.

So far the looks we’ve had at The trailer was pretty awesome and who doesn’t love Edward James Olmos?

Today we have a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming season in advance of the October 2nd premiere. Looks like business as usual at Miami Metro – a dead body ends up on the beach and that somehow lead Dexter to a coalition of killers. But this time they’re murdering in the name of God, not in the name of “Hey, this will feel cool.”

The cast and crew are promising this will be the biggest and weirdest season yet, with the previously established rules poked right in the eye. Does that mean that the Batista and LaGuerta storyline will suddenly make sense and be interesting? I’m not ready for that.

During its presentation at Comic-Con today, Showtime busted out a brand spankin’ new trailer for Dexter. Could season 6 wash away the bad taste left by the last season? Judging by the above footage, it’s damn well possible.

Colin Hanks, and Mos Def making their way to the serial killer dramedy. Now it turns out that there is going to be a lady after all: Brea Grant, best known for her roles in Halloween II and “Heroes.” The announcement came from Grant’s website, like so:

“no spoilers but i’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing me in a white lab coat.”

Ooooh, a white lab coat! I wonder if this means she’ll be playing a sexy owner of a white lab coat store. I guess I’ll have to wait until the new season of “Dexter” premieres on Showtime in the fall. (BreaGrant.com)

Dexter Morgan will meet his most pockmarked rival yet in the form of Edward James Olmos. The veteran actor will take time from his busy schedule of clinging tenaciously to the “Battleship Galactica” franchise for a major season-long arc on the upcoming sixth season of Showtime’s”Dexter.”

On the drama he will play a charming professor of religious studies who doesn’t realize he’s actually an android tasked with the unenviable job of keeping a tight leash on Crockett and Tubbs. I’m sorry. I’ve mixed up my Olmos history again. He’ll only play a charming professor of religious studies it turns out. This fits nicely with the recent news that Mos Def has joined the cast to play an ex-con who has found religion. Seems like he’s found it with the help of Edward James Olmos. Also, it sounds like they’re killing people. Keep it up, guys and Jesus will definitely revoke your homeboyship. (Deadline)

Edward James Olmos Planning ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Graphic Novel http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/edward-james-olmos-planning-battlestar-galactica-graphic-novel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/edward-james-olmos-planning-battlestar-galactica-graphic-novel/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Battlestar Galactica" fans should be happy about this. Edward James Olmos isn’t ready to let William Adama go. The creators of the TV series are sticking with prequels but he’s got a plan to see Commander Adama again. “If they don’t, I am,” Olmos said in a conference call today. “I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don't know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will.” More after the jump...

"Battlestar Galactica" fans should be happy about this. Edward James Olmos isn’t ready to let William Adama go. The creators of the TV series are sticking with prequels but he’s got a plan to see Commander Adama again.

“If they don’t I am,” Olmos said in a conference call today. “I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don’t know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will.”

More after the jump…

Olmos spoke with the press for Hispanic Heritage Month, where his film Selena is one of the films Warner Brothers is offering on Movies on Demand. Conversation tuned to “BSG” and he elaborated on his plans to continue the story where the series left off.

“I think people would really flip out to know what Lee Adama is doing on the planet, what the chief is doing on the planet and what is the colonel doing on the planet and how is the planet treating us and how are we treating the planet? How are we getting along, the human development that we were inside of the human development that we see today. That’s pretty heavy.”

Olmos is currently looking for artists to help him, so get on that! “That’s what I’m going for right now,” he said.

The series finale of “Battlestar” left Adama on a new planet building a cabin. It turns out Olmos has more ideas based on that too. “I want to know what he’s doing right now, don’t you? I kind of was left with him sitting about to build his cabin, so God almighty I’d like to know what’s happening to him right now. In many moments throughout the day, I’ll think, ‘I wonder what he’s doing? What the heck is he up to? What the heck are those people up to?’ Here they were 200,000 years ago on this earth. They came from the experience that they came from. All I can tell you is: aren’t you guys curious as to what happened to them?”

Yes, we are, Eddie. Yes, we are.

‘Breaking Bad’ Hopes Webisodes Will Hold You Over Until 2011 http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/breaking-bad-hopes-webisodes-will-hold-you-over-until-2011/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/breaking-bad-hopes-webisodes-will-hold-you-over-until-2011/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 July of 2011 is a long way off; almost a year by some estimates. Unfortunately, that's how long we'll have to wait for new episodes of "Breaking Bad." But to help keep fans from resorting to meth use, the show's producers are developing a series of three-to-four minute webisodes to run on the AMC website. According to the show's star, Bryan Cranston, these websiodes will be more than just fluff. "I for one am eager to make these little interstitials important. I don’t want them to be simply filler or recap, but something that actually moves the storyline forward. If we’re going to do it, it ought to be a real part of the larger show.” This sounds like a welcome change from the "Battlestar Galactica" websiodes, which consisted mainly of deleted scenes and 15 minutes of Edward James Olmos letting loose on the can. (Deadline)
