Have you had trouble watching Dexter this season without thinking, “Man, the guy who plays Quinn looks just like Gossip Girl‘s Bart Bass, only younger”? Apparently, you’re not the only one. Sources confirm to me exclusively that GG has stolen away Desmond Harrington — aka Deb’s latest sparring partner — to play Bart’s baby bro, Jack, for a multi-episode arc.
As I teased in last week’s Ask Ausiello, the handsome devil shows up in Gotham in early ’09 to see the Bass clan through a crisis. And before you go freaking out insisting that I should’ve slapped a spoiler alert on this column — “If Harrington’s working on GG,” you might suspect, “Quinn must be getting written off Dexter!” — let me remind you that the Showtime hit is done shooting for this season. So it doesn’t mean anything.
Well, not necessarily. Hmmm….
So what do you think? Is the Rescue Me alum trading up or down by switching teams? Which of Girl‘s girls do you think will catch the older-but-not-as-old-as-Bart-older man’s eye? And if you had to choose between a role on Dexter and a role on GG, which show would you go with? So many questions… If only there were someplace you could go to supply answers. Oh, I know. Why don’t you just post some below? Wow, convenient! (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)
