‘Dexter’ Newcomer Jamie Chung Says The Revival Series Will Have ‘A Different Vibe’ From The Original

As the Dexter revival prepares for its fall premiere, more and more details are bleeding out about the highly anticipated return of Michael C. Hall as the serial killer with a moral code. When the limited series finally hits Showtime, it will feature an all-new cast as most of (if not all of) the characters from Dexter’s time in Miami have either been killed or think he’s dead. In fact, James Remar, who played Dexter’s father, went so far as to say that absolutely none of the original cast will return, apparently including Jennifer Carpenter, who fans believe will be back in the revival.

‘The Misfits’ Trailer: Renny Harlin Directs Pierce Crosnan, Nick Cannon, And Jamie Chung In A ‘Fast & Furious’-esque Heist Flick

Okay, so on paper there’s a lot the kid in me who grew up on action movies should love about The Misfits. It’s a heist film directed by Renny Harlin, known for Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, and more. Even the cast isn’t too bad with Pierce Brosnan, Jamie Chung, Tim Roth, Hermione Corfield, and Nick Cannon on board. However, the trailer doesn’t look great, and my hope is that it’s saving some of the best stuff for later.
