Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jimmy Smits has joined the cast of Showtime's Dexter, and will be featured in 10 of Season 3's dozen episodes, premiering this fall.

Smits will play Miguel Prado, an "ambitious and charismatic assistant district attorney" who comes from one of Miami's most politically powerful and beloved sugar cane dynasties families. Our boy Dex will join forces with crime-buster Prado to track a murderer who affects both of their lives directly. - Matt Mitovich
