'Franklin & Bash' Casts 'Dexter' Alum James Remar as Guest Star


'Franklin & Bash' Casts 'Dexter' Alum James Remar to Guest Star


James Remar may no longer be whispering ghostly words of fatherly advice in Dexter Morgan's ear, but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of him on the small screen...not by a long shot.

In fact, the actor has just landed a guest-starring gig on the TNT legal drama 'Franklin & Bash' for the upcoming season, playing the role of Cliff Menders — a hard-nosed and intimidating strip joint owner who’d rather fire a pole dancer than pay her an extra nickel out of his own pocket. He’s the type of guy who expects to win every confrontation he's in — even in a brutal courtroom battle.

In other words, F&B are going to have their work cut out for them.

As fate would have it, Remar will appear in the same exact episode as previously announced guest star Kevin McKidd ('Grey’s Anatomy'). However, it will be in a completely different storyline, so (sadly) don’t expect their paths to really cross.

Aside from his famous role on 'Dexter,' Remar just recently filled another fatherly role playing Alex Karev's dad during a brief, yet heartbreaking stint on 'Grey's Anatomy.' His other TV credits include voice work for 'Beware the Batman' and 'The Legend of Korra' as well as appearances on 'Wilfred' and the 'Hatfields & McCoys' miniseries.

'Franklin & Bash' will kick off its fourth season on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 10/9c on TNT, leading out of the series debut of Sean Bean’s 'Legends.'
