John Lithgow Signs on for Dexter

10846953_profile_mbox_backgroundTVGuide just announced that John Lithgow has signed on for the 2009-2010 season of Dexter.

The Emmy-winning actor will play Walter Simmons, aka the “Trinity Killer,” so named because he murders in threes. Simmons is a mild-mannered suburbanite who shows up in Miami, on the run from FBI Special Agent Frank Lundy. (Keith Carradine returns as Lundy after a season-long absence.) Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) becomes infatuated with the Trinity Killer’s methods, and his ability to evade capture for more than 30 years.

Lithgow will appear in all 12 episodes of Season 4, which premieres Sunday, Sept. 27.

Lithgow is probably best known for his role as Dr. Dick Solomon, on 3rd Rock from the Sun or as the voice of Lord Farquaad in Shrek.

One can only imagine what having Lithgow as a villian (object of fascination) on Dexter will mean. I can totally see him in the role (no offense Lithgow). There’s something about comedians playing dramatic bad guys that just makes it extra special.

Marvel announced recently that Chris Hemsworth has been cast to play the lead in their newest comic-book-blockbuster – Thor, which is currently set to release in the summer of 2011. Thor is one of the characters needed for The Avengers, which includes Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America (and later incarnations included Spider-Man).

Chris Hemsworth is most recently familiar  for his role as George Kirk, Captain Kirk’s father, in the new Star Trek movie. From the brief moments he was on screen I can see him taking this role and doing amazing things with it.

My [rating:3.5]

Quote of the Episode:

Lindsay: You’ve had $80,000 worth of cartography lessons. Get us a channel to the ocean.
Buster: Okay, okay, okay.
(Pauses)
Buster: Obviously this blue part here is the land.

Non-Spoilery Review:

Arrested Development is one of those shows you either extremely love or extremely hate. The style of the show seemed to be one that I’d truly hate, but after some convincing from my friend Emma, I watched and fell in love. A well written pilot is no small task for creators of a show, you have to include elements that set the tone and story line for an entire season of television before those episodes are even written. Some of my all-time favorite shows have fairly week pilots, so I’m always fascinated when I find a show that has a very well written one. Arrested Development is one of those shows. Spoilers below the jump.
