Cabrera — who played drug-addled artist Issac Mendez on NBC’s sci-fi series — will guest-star as Ethan Price, the author of a true crime book series about famous murders. And where better for the writer to conduct a few case studies than Miami, home of the Bay Harbor Butcher, the Ice Truck Killer, the Trinity Killer and many, many more homicidal deviants?
Cabrera’s recent TV credits include a stint as Sir Lancelot on BBC’s Merlin, Covert Affairs (where he “cooked up” a li’l chemistry with Agent Annie Walker) and the pilot for Fox’s ill-fated Alcatraz.
