LEE MILLER in DEXTER Season 5
Official Dexter homepage
Lee Miller's 'Dexter' role may rival that of Arthur Mitchell!
No one may ever be as worthy an opponent for
Dexter Morgan (Michael C Hall) as Arthur Mitchell, but tonight
on Showtime's hit serial killing drama, Dexter, we are introduced
to someone who may be a close second.
Enter special guest star Jonny Lee Miller as self-help speaker
and life coach, Jordan Chase (yes, the voice behind Boyd Fowler's
infamous "Take It!" tapes), who finds himself entangled
with the case when a truck carrying the barrels crashes, leaving
the women strewn about the street.
Take a look at Jordan Chase in the slideshow below; is that
how you always pictured him?
Though it appears like all of his tracks have been covered,
blaming his "stalker" Boyd for stealing his vehicle,
savvy fans know there must be much more than meets the eye!
But a man who can commit such heinous crimes, not even break
a sweat when facing down suspicion, and pretty much get away
with it all? Well, that's definitely someone right up there
with a sociopath like Arthur Mitchell!
Meanwhile Dexter and Lumen (Julia Stiles) are still partaking
in a little investigation of their own, and a couple of the
details she remembers from her time in Boyd's house may end
up being all the proof Dexter needs to seal Jordan's fate.
Unfortunately for him, he is racing the clock once again,
as Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) and the rest of homicide are also
officially investigating the murders.

....Goldwyn confirms that Boyd is just the first
of many villains in a scheme that Dexter will uncover this
season, and if they're all considered rats, there's one King
Rat who awaits Dexter's justice.
He explains: "Boyd gives us the first inkling of the
spectral thing of Jonny Lee Miller, listening to those tapes
in his disgusting roadkill truck. Jonny Lee Miller, our primary
villain, plays a motivational speaker."
As we've heard on the show, motivational speaker Jordan Chase's
(Miller) catchphrase is "Take it now," encouraging
his disciples to take action.
"That's where Jonny Lee Miller's role in things clarifies,
his impact on the lives of the people who were part of this
abduction of women [like Lumen]," says the EP. "Like
all motivational speakers, they weirdly make sense when you
listen to them because they're charismatic and they reduce
things to a core simplicity which makes it digestible. So
one of the fun things in the season is how Dexter engages
with him and that's what the audience loves, how he does the
dance with the person he's gonna ultimately take down."
Lee Miller Signs On To 'Dexter'
Dexter starts up again in September, but the
show is still bulking up its cast. Jonny Lee Miller, last
seen on TV in BBC miniseries Emma, will have a recurring role
in the new season as “a mysterious man who ends up tangled
in a storyline with Julia Stiles." Stiles previously
signed on to the show as “a mysterious young woman who
forms a unique relationship with Dexter.” So we don't
know much so far, other than that people will be mysterious.
Dexter, which is entering it’s fifth season on Showtime,
follows the life of Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a serial
killer who works for the Miami Police force as a forensics
expert. Along with Miller and Stiles, Southland’s Shawn
Hatosy and The Tudors' Maria Doyle Kennedy are joining the
show, as a “bad guy” and new nanny, respectively.
We can’t even begin to predict how Miller will fit
into the show, since his roles have ranged from sociopathic
drug addict Sick Boy in Trainspotting to a singing corporate
lawyer on Eli Stone. I hope they’ll find him a role
more interesting than “semi-annual FBI agent who shows
up to get suspicious of Dexter,” at the very least.
Lee Miller: Dexter's Newest Hire!
Jonny Lee Miller is joining the cast of Dexter
for season five!
The 37-year-old British actor will also be joining fellow
newcomer Julia Stiles.
According to Variety, “Miller will play a mysterious
man who ends up tangled in a storyline with Julia Stiles.”
This will be Jonny’s first return to American television
since his run as the main character on Eli Stone, which ended
back in 2009.
Dexter is set to return for an all new season this fall!
