This is really exciting casting: A Rome fan favorite and big screen action star is going to face off with everybody’s favorite serial killer.

Ray Stevenson has joined the highly anticipated upcoming seventh season of Showtime’s Dexter. The tough-guy actor who’s appeared in movies like Thor, The Three Musketeers and Punisher: War Zone will have a recurring role next season playing the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate. Stevenson will also appear in the upcoming Thor sequel and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Dexter fans were left with a stunning cliffhanger last season that set into motion the show’s end game. [Spoiler alert for those who haven’t seen it yet] Dexter Morgan was discovered by his sister Debra in the middle of finishing off his latest victim — right after Debra realized she has some rather non-sisterly feelings for him. The seventh season is expected to be the second-to-final round of the acclaimed hit, though that could still change. Dexter returns Sunday, Sept. 30. What do you think of Titus Pullo going to Miami?
