Stevenson has starred in TV's "Rome" and in movies like "Thor" and "Punisher: War Zone," will also star in the "Thor" sequel and this summer's "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." He also stars in Billy Bob Thorton's latest directorial effort, the drama "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

"Dexter," which was renewed for a seventh and eighth season by Showtime in November, will begin its seventh season on Sept. 30. It will pick up with Dexter being caught in the act of murder by his sister-through-adoption, Deb — who also happens to be in love with him.
