Actor Patrick Dempsey Added to Cast of ‘Dexter’ Prequel ‘Original Sin’


Patrick Dempsey‘s turning in scrubs for a police uniform. The actor, best known for his role on “Grey’s Anatomy”, has joined the cast of “Dexter: Original Sin” as a series regular. He is set to portray Aaron Spencer, the Captain of the Miami Metro Homicide who has a decades-long relationship with Christian Slater’s Harry Morgan.


The “Dexter” prequel, which began production in Miami earlier this month, also stars Patrick Gibson as Dexter Morgan, Molly Brown as Debra Morgan, James Martinez as Angel Batista, Christina Milian as Maria LaGuerta, Alex Shimizu as Vince Masuka and Reno Wilson as Bobby Watt. (David Zayas, Lauren Vélez, and C. S. Lee starred as Batista, LaGuerta, and Masuka, respectively, in the original series, while Watt is a new character.)


Set in 1991, 15 years before the events of “Dexter,” the series follows Dexter as he “transitions from student to avenging serial killer,” per the official logline. “When his bloodthirsty urges can’t be ignored any longer, Dexter must learn to channel his inner darkness. With the guidance of his father, Harry (Slater), he adopts a Code designed to help him find and kill people who deserve to be eliminated from society without getting on law enforcements’ radar. This is a particular challenge for young Dexter as he begins a forensics internship at the Miami Metro Police Department.”
