‘Heroes’ Star Brea Grant Joins Season Six of ‘Dexter’


“Heroes” star Brea Grant announced today on her website that she has landed a recurring role on season six of Showtime’s Emmy-winning serial killer series “Dexter.” She joins Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, and Mos Def as the show’s new faces.

Grant teased:

I’ll be recurring on Dexter this season! no spoilers but i’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing me in a white lab coat.

Hmm. Earlier this month a casting call was leaked that listed one of the season’s new characters as being a lab assistant for Masuka. The role asked for male actor, but is there a chance they went female? That could be fun.

Grant starred as Laurie Strode’s (Scout Taylor-Compton) best friend Mya in Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2. She’s best known, however, for her role as speed-freak thief Daphne Millbrook on NBC’s “Heroes.”

Production on “Dexter” began this week in Los Angeles.



Twentieth Century Fox is finally busting out January Jones’ big guns to promote director Mathew Vaughn’s X-Men origins prequel X-Men: First Class. The studio has wisely released images of Jones dolled up in her Emma Frost lingerie for our viewing pleasure.

While not as trashy—and unbelievably hot—as the stuff Emma Frost wears in the Marvel comics, the outfit is sexy enough to make up for damage they did to Mystique’s sex appeal. Here’s hoping she gets a lot of screen time … Oh, who am I kidding? I just need two minutes.

X-Men: First Class hits theaters on June 3.
