Gedrick, who played a degenerate gambler on HBO's Luck, will play the manager of a Miami-area strip club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case on the Michael C. Hall-Jennifer Carpenter drama.

Gedrick joins Rome's Ray Stevenson, who will play the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate, in Dexter's seventh season.

The Showtime drama, following a shocking sixth-season finale in which Deb (Carpenter) discovered Dexter's (Hall) "dark passenger" as she prepared to profess her love for her adopted brother, was renewed last year for two additional seasons, potentially setting the stage for the series' end. Production on Season 7 begins this month in Los Angeles.
