Actor Santiago Cabrera is joining the upcoming season of Showtime’s Dexter.

The Chilean actor played a prophetic painter on Heroes and was Sir Lancelot in BBC’s Merlin. On the upcoming seventh season of the Showtime hit, Cabrera will appear in a couple episodes as Ethan Price, a charming investigative writer of true crime books about famous murder cases. We don’t know yet which case Price is investigating, but considering all the Miami mayhem we’ve seen so far on this show, there’s certainly plenty of sensational deaths to choose from.

Showtime previously lined up Yvonne Strahovski and Ray Stevensen for new Dexter roles this season. And by now you’ve seen the sneak preview video from Comic-Con showing the first two minutes of season seven, right? That’s here. Dexter returns Sept. 30.
