Genre icon Peter Weller (ROBOCOP, THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION) has just joined the ranks of the Miami Police Department for the upcoming fifth season of Showtime's cult hit Dexter. Weller will play a brooding boy in blue who's involved in an internal affairs investigation. From this description, Weller's character sounds like someone who is haunted by his past, which probably means he's the leading character to play Dexter's new best friend.

Weller will also be joined by series newcomers Julia Stiles, Jonny Lee Miller, Maria Doyle Kennedy, April Lee Hernandez and Shawn Hatosy in the new season, so look for a lot of new storylines and a lot of new blood in the new season. premiering on September 26.

Fun Fact: In 1984's THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION, Weller went up against the villainous John Lithgow, who recently played the Trinity Killer last season on Dexter. Could Lithgow have been singing Weller's praises on the set? Probably not, seeing how both actors are hard-pressed to even recall what BUCKAROO BANZAI was even about.

    Nice article, thanks. I've switched over to bartering recently for most of anything I can get without having to shell out cash. There are a couple sites out thereto use, to connect with people who are looking to barter trade/swap items or even services (carpentry work for auto work, etc). One of the sites I use is Baarter – http://baarter.com

    They also have a ' Free Stuff  ' section.
