Dexter Scores Colin Hanks, New Promo

Colin Hanks has landed a recurring role on the sixth season of Showtime’s “Dexter” reports TV Line.

Hanks will play Travis, described as a “highly intelligent young expert on ancient artifacts who gets linked to a series of grisly murders in Miami.”

Julia Stiles, Johnny Lee Miller, Peter Weller and Maria Doyle Kennedy had recurring roles last year. This season there are three further recurring characters introduced – a young Latina grad student, the new lab intern and buddy of Masuka, and a no-BS African-American homicide detective.

Meanwhile, Showtime has released a new teaser promo for the season which essentially gives away the biggest spoilers of the show’s first four years (oddly there’s no mention of the events of the fifth).
