Jordana Spiro is the latest guest star to join season six of Showtime’s award-winning serial killer drama “Dexter.” The pretty 34-year-old will play a religious cult member under the spell of its homicidal leader (Edward James Olmos).
The synopsis for the show’s new season reads:
Dexter Morgan spent Season Five atoning for the death of his wife, Rita. He committed to being a part of her children’s lives and entered into a deep, passionate relationship with Lumen, unlike anything he’d ever had before.
But Dexter’s need to kill overpowers his desire for human connection. And now that one person knows the truth about him, and a few others are close, how much longer will America’s favorite serial killer be able to keep his dark side a secret?
Additional guest stars include Colin Hanks (Lucky), MC-turned-actor Mos Def, Mariana Klaveno (”True Blood”) Molly Parker (”The Firm”), Josh Cooke (Quarantine 2: Terminal), Billy Brown (Cloverfield), Brea Grant (”Heroes”) and Latin stunner Aimee Garcia (”Trauma”).
Spiro’s genre creds include an episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and a starring role in the From Dusk Till Dawn home-video sequel From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman’s Daughter. She will next be seen opposite Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman in director Joel Schumacher’s home-invasion thriller Trespass.
Burlesque model-and-performer Dita Von Teese is set to star opposite Paz de la Huerta (”Boardwalk Empire”) and Katrina Bowden (”30 Rock”) in Lionsgate’s exciting new psycho-sexual slasher Nurse 3-D. The shapely 38-year-old will play a nightclub performer who most likely wears old lady lingerie like the kind you found in your mom’s dresser drawer (btw, she knows).
The film centers on a beautiful, but bat-shit crazy, nurse named Abby Russell (Huerta) who seduces and murders men she deems as being wicked. Things get complicated for Abby, however, when a young nurse (Bowden) grows suspicious about of her behavior.
Nurse 3-D is directed by Douglas Aarniokoski (The Day) and costars Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), Boris Kodjoe (Resident Evil: Afterlife) and Adam Herschman (Bucky Larson). The film shoots this month in Toronto.
(UPDATE: DITA IS NOT IN THE MOVIE. BREAK THE NEWS GENTLY TO YOUR PENIS)
Josh Brolin has scored the lead in Spike Lee’s American remake of South Korean director Park Chan-wook’s revenge thriller Oldboy. Written by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend), the Mandate Pictures and Vertigo Entertainment production will roll camera next March.
Oldboy tells the tale of a man (Brolin) who is abducted and held captive in a crappy hotel room for 15 years for no apparent reason. When he is finally released, he sets out to find and take vengeance on the people who ruined his life.
Oldboy is one of those films that people keep telling me I have to see, but that I keep pushing down my Netflix queue in favor of English-speaking movies—even those starring Nic Cage. Needless-to-say, I’m thrilled this is happening.
Brolin just wrapped Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3. His previous genre creds include Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, Guillermo Del Toro’s Mimic, Paul Verhoeven’s Hollow Man, and last year’s unfortunate misstep Jonah Hex.
