LOS ANGELES, CA - May 12, 2011 - Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor Mos (formerly known as Mos Def) joins recently announced guest star Colin Hanks in the cast of the Emmy nominated SHOWTIME(R) drama series DEXTER(TM) for Season 6. Mos will appear in a multi-episode story arc in which he will play Brother Sam, a hardened ex-con who claims to have found religion, yet seems to continually find himself surrounded by violence. Production on DEXTER begins in June in Los Angeles and will premiere on SHOWTIME this fall.

Mos began his career in the music industry and is regarded as one of hip hop's most introspective and insightful artists.

Other feature film credits include 16 Blocks, The Italian Job, The Woodsman, and The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. His Broadway debut was in the Tony nominated, Pulitzer Prize winning, Topdog/Underdog and he won an Obie Award for the off-Broadway play, Fucking A. He most recently just completed a run of A Free Man of Color at Lincoln Center opposite Jeffrey Wright, and directed by George Wolfe.

One of the most acclaimed series on television, DEXTER(TM) stars Michael C.
