Julia Stiles in talks for <i>Dexter</i> We reported just yesterday that Julie Benz was returning to a hit Showtime series and today it seems a new actress is joining the series as well. Ausiello Files is reporting that Julia Stiles is in final talks for a role in Dexter.

It was said that the role was "top-secret," although new showrunner Chip Johannessen revealed she will not play a major villain in the show, like John Lithgow played last season.

"We're not going to have a single Big Bad this season," revealed Johannessen. "We don't want to try and top John Lithgow, so we're going to change up the forces that Dexter's going to be dealing with."

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further Dexter news including news on who Julia Stiles might be playing in the upcoming fifth season.
