The 62-year-old actor will star as Kurt Caldwell, the “unofficial” mayor of Iron Lake, and also the main villain of the revived series.
Showtime adds to the character description, that Caldwell “realized the American dream by going from driving big rigs, just like his father did, to now owning several trucks and the local truck stop. Powerful, generous, loved by everyone — he’s a true man of the people. If he’s got your back, consider yourself blessed. But should you cross Kurt, or hurt anyone that he cares for, God help you.”
The revival is set for 10 episodes premiering in the fall, which will see Michael C. Hall returning in the title role.
The original Dexter series ran for eight seasons and many fans of the show, and cast, were not happy with how it ended.
Clancy is best known ass Kurgan in Highlander, Captain Byron Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption, and the voice of Mr. Krabs on SpongeBob SquarePants.
