Julia Stiles: DEXTER'S New Girl?

Julia Stiles is reportedly in final talks to play a role in Dexter‘s upcoming fifth season.

According to EW‘s Michael Ausiello, sources exclusively told him that Julia will play a top-secret role but most likely won’t play a major villain like John Lithgow‘s character last season.

Most recently, it was also announced that Julie Benz will be returning to Dexter. Julie played Dexter’s love interest, Rita, in the series who was murdered in the show. It’s unclear how she’ll be brought back to life in the first episode of the season.

    The Trinity Killer didn’t kill Rita. It was the next door neighbor. Hide and watch!

    I’m still not over Rita’s death. Sigh.
    If Julia’s gonna play a twisted character, I bet Dexter will be drawn to her. Otherwise, I don’t think Rita will ever be replaced in Dexter’s “heart.”

  • Piper

    if she signed on i will have to watch Dexter. love her!

  • Gee

    She’ll probably be in Dexter’s mind like his father is. It’s kind of hard to bring someone back to life after what Trinity did to her.

  • Halli

    Dexter’s an incredible show. This better not be the last season.

  • OT

    Julia Stiles + Leo DiCaprio = ♥
    Can you see what a serious good couple they would be! ♥

  • Duh


    Did you not watch when the actors said Trinity killed her? haha.

  • Duh

    Julia will ruin it.

  • me

    Ugh-just when I thought we were rid of Rita! Great, now she can bit ch at him constantly from the grave.

  • Àlan

    Oh, I like her. Another reason to watch dexter.

  • Megan

    Dude. Did it occur to you that some people have not seen that season?? Thanks a lot.

  • Lindsay Vajay

    She is pretty

  • Christopher

    If you aren’t caught up on the series, why would you read articles about future episodes/seasons? Idiots.

  • Haggie

    Julia Stiles = Dexter jumps the shark…

    Sad to see one of my favorite shows focusing on budget instead of talent. She doesn’t even come close to having the acting skill to join this cast.

    ARE YOU SERIOUS???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    I can’t believe how shocked I was that the character of Rita was
    written out of the show. I buy and watch whole seasons. So I’m
    quite involved emotionally as I am immersed in a season. To
    have it end that way, with (since I don’t pay for extras like Showtime)
    many months to see something unfold that will handle the grief
    imposed as a shock upon an audience of my nature is cruel.

    If it is drama that isn’t aiming at the viewers emotions and
    engagement then it isn’t worth one’s time.

    I liked Rita’s character. Her soft-spoken gentle and mostly
    trusting ways. She was a good mother. Now the older children
    have lost both their parents. It’s a rather cruel plot.

    I don’t think someone as unemotional, and non-sexual as Julia
    Stiles (consider her role Bourne Series) can ever fill the gaping hole left by the loss of Rita’s character. I hope she isn’t slated to have
    any relationship with Dexter’s character. I hope she is not a long
    term character.
    Eventually Rita must be replaced. And that person must win our
    hearts and be a realistic and loving presence in the lives of
    Rita’s older children, as well as fit in well with Dexter’s character.

    If that new woman doesn’t reach a cadence, a resting place as
    Dexter’s mate and mother to the children, then I see no respite
    from the bloody nature of Dexter’s character, and the show.
    Rita provided balance. There must be a new balance by
    the end of the next season, or I’m done with the show.

  • Yvette

    @Avriana: How can you expect ‘balance’ by the end of season 5 when season 5 starts five minutes after Dexter finds Rita’s body? Further more, why would you assume that Julia Stiles character will be a love interest for Dexter. Michael Hall, Julia Stiles, and the show’s Producer have all said her character–someone named Lumen–won’t be a romantic interest. It’s much too soon for any of that.
