It’s being rumoured that John Cusack is in the running to play the main villain in the upcoming Dexter revival. This rumour comes from The Illuminerdi, and their track record is pretty good with these sorts of exclusives.
It was revealed that Showtime had ordered a revival Dexter limited-series, and Michael C. Hall would be returning to play the lead in the show (Dexter Morgan). It’s been a while since we last saw Dexter, and the show’s finale wasn’t very well received by fans and critics alike.
It seems like all those involved in making the show want a second chance at getting the show right, and hopefully, they’ll do that with this upcoming revival Dexter series. It’s now being rumoured that they’ve already got their villain lined up in John Cusack, and I say, bring it on!
John Cusack could be playing the villain in the Dexter Revival series
The Illuminerdi’s article says that Cusack is the top choice for the role, who’s described as being called “Kurt”. Here’s the character description:
Kurt was born in a Northeast American town, where our story seems to take place, and eventually became a trucker. After trucking for many years, he came to own the local truck stop in town, and established himself as a beloved leader in the community. This handsome, commanding man, a true man of the people, “pulled himself up by the bootstraps and realized the American dream”. His son, Matthew has created many “messes” over the years, messes that are cleaned up by Kurt with wealth he has amassed throughout his lifetime.
Sounds like John Cusack would be perfect for that role, and I love the idea of him playing a villain in the series. The best Dexter villains have always been the ones you least expect playing that sort of role.
