Exclusive: 'Dexter' targets 'Mental' case Chris Vance

dexter-hall-vanceImage Credit: Steve Granitz/WireImage.com; Peter Iovino/ShowtimePrison Break‘s Chris Vance (Whistler!) has booked a multi-episode arc on the upcoming fifth season of Dexter, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The British thesp—who most recently headlined Fox’s short-lived shrink procedural Mental—will play Cole, a meticulous, physically fit, well-spoken personal aide to a famous businessman.

Vance, who is slated to appear in at least three episodes of Dexter, also recurred on the third season of Burn Notice as an antagonist to Jeffrey Donovan’s Michael.

Other Dexter season 5 guest stars include Julia Stiles, erstwhile RoboCop Peter Weller, and ex–Eli Stone attorney Jonny Lee Miller.

    Dexter’s new season keeps getting more and more interesting with this guest spots

  • Cafe Society

    Wow, Dexter is just racking up guest stars this season. I loved Whistler on Prison Break. Here’s to another bloody awesome season of Dexter!

  • Erin

    Yay – I loved him on the Aussie show All Saints and loved him on Prison Break.

  • Captain Average

    I remember asking Matt Nix if he cast Vance on Burn Notice because of his resemblance to Dougray Scott [his talent pretty much goes without saying...].

    He said no, but agreed that there’s a resemblance and a very similar ability to exude danger.

    That should be very effecive on Dexter.

  • Lu

    Awesome! I love Chris Vance and I wish he starred in a show… Whatever people say, I miss Mental. He’s terrific.

  • Captain Exlusive

    I can confirm exclusively that I am excited about the fifth season of Dexter.

      …damn! :D

  • tacocat

    No idea that RoboCop was a guest star.
    Physically fit? Sounds like Dex is going to have to show off some more of that college-learned Judo.

  • Sabine

    we have to discuss the term Star a little …
    He was a guest role in Prison Break …
    The real star was someone else

  • Scooptress

    Is there a newer hipper word for “meh”?

  • Marge Simpson

    Yay! I LOVE Chris Vance! Now, if they’d give him a STARRING role in a GOOD show, then I’d be really happy!

  • pedro

    Sabine- where does it say he was the star of Prison Break? Read the post and SHUT UP.

  • A

    He STARRED in ‘Mental Case,’ a good show, guest-starred on ‘Burn Notice,’ and we shall see about ‘Dexter’ when it airs…
    I like the actor. ‘Dexter’ is the perfectly creepy place for him to guest star.

  • Pepper

    Blimey – just let me see Jonny Lee Miller in ‘Dexter’ and you can forget the other actors.

    • CORIN

      I am with you on that one Pepper

  • FLGrl

    Jonny Lee Miller, I’ve missed you!
    I’m looking forward to Julia Stiles as well :)

  • Jeff
