Dexter Season 9: Network Teased Major Cast Details
Recently the news came off that Clancy Brown will join Dexter Season 9 as Kurt Caldwell. He is the unofficial mayor of Iron Lake, a small remote town. Apart from Dexter, Kurt will be the main villain who will challenge Dexter time-to-time. Further, Kurt is a person who follows his father’s footsteps. Initially, he used to drive rigs. But, now he owns a local truck stop and many trucks too.
Talking about his appearance, Kurt is a people’s man. He loves his people, and everyone in the town trusts him. But, if you ever cross Kurt and hurt his people, then nobody can save you from his anger. So, it’s better to stay at a safe distance when dealing with Kurt Caldwell.
John Cusack Was The First Choice As Kurt
Earlier rumored that John Cusack had been selected as Kurt Caldwell. But, it did’nt happen. As Brown has stunned people ample times with his rough and action-packed villainous attitude. Brown has played Captain Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption and SpongeBob Square Pants’ Mr. Krabs. Even he stepped into several dangerous roles before. So, we can expect that Brown will turn out as a good pair with Dexter. As it seems that our serial killer would soon turn into Kurt’s wrong side.
