Mos Def, an actor who began as a socially conscious rapper, apparently hasn’t strayed too far from his roots after encountering some success as an actor. Of the over 100 hunger striking prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, over 40 are being force fed. To demonstrate exactly what this entails, Mos Def went through it on camera.

It’s about as disturbing as one would assume a force feeding would be.

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.

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)

Danny Trejo And Mos Def: Now On Your Cable Television http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/danny-trejo-and-mos-def-now-on-your-cable-television/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/danny-trejo-and-mos-def-now-on-your-cable-television/#comments Wed, 11 May 2011 22:38:11 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211640 Trejo joins "Sons of Anarchy," Def joins "Dexter," and I join The Intrigued Club.

Two interesting actors are joining two interesting TV shows. Interesting? My verdict: “yes.”

Fans of gritty badassitude, which I hope you are, will also likely be fans of this team-up: Danny Trejo and “Sons of Anarchy.” The Machete star joins FX’s motorcycle drama as Romero “Romeo” Parada, a charmingly kickass Mexican military man who will pal around with the SAMCRO crew. He also recently guested on ABC’s”Modern Family,” but I didn’t see the episode. I assume him and Grandpa Al Bundy came to blows. (TVLine)

Meanwhile, Mos Def will do Showtime‘s “Dexter,” and by that I mean he’ll star on the actual show, not do his own sweded version. The actor / rapper will play a newly religious ex-con in multiple episodes. However, violence still seems to follow him wherever he goes, despite claims of being reformed. He joins previously announced Colin Hanks as one of the new season’s villains. (Hollywood Reporter)
