Robocop is joining the Miami Metro police.
The 63-year-old actor, whose TV work includes 24 and film credits include Naked Lunch and Mighty Aphrodite, will play a troubled policeman caught in an internal affairs investigation for eight episodes in Season 5.
The serial-killer series landed seven Emmy nominations last week. Among them: outstanding drama, lead actor (Michael C. Hall) and guest actor (John Lithgow — who co-starred with Weller in the 1984 cult film The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai).
Season 5 of Dexter will debut Sunday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on Showtime.
