Peter Weller to Play 100% Human Cop on ‘Dexter’

For a moment there was a part of my nerdy brain that wanted to a cross-over between RoboCop and the serial killer with the Dark Passenger, but it was fleeting. While it would be cool to see Peter Weller bring back his most famous cyborg crime-fighter, just having him as a member of the Dexter cast should be good enough. Throughout most of the upcoming season, Weller will play a “troubled Miami Metro police officer who gets caught up in an internal affairs investigation.” This investigation will no doubt have some effect on the world of Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), as Dexter is now going to be looking for danger around every corner after the way season four ended. No spoilers here, but you probably know what I’m talking about. Weller should be a welcome addition to this solid and ever-growing cast. [Deadline]
