TVLine has learned that Dexter‘s dad will guest-star on the TNT legal drama as 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 a guy who expects to win every confrontation — including his day in court against F&B.

Remar will appear in the same episode as previously announced guest star Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy), yet in a different storyline. So don’t expect him to go asking what was up with Shane.

In addition to his Dexter role and a recent run on Grey’s Anatomy, Remar’s recent TV credits include voice work for Beware the Batman and The Legend of Korra, and appearances on Wilfred and the Hatfields & McCoys mini.

Franklin & Bash premieres its fourth season on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 10 pm, leading out of the series debut of Sean Bean’s Legends.

    The only thing better than James Remar on a show is knowing I’ll have satellite by then, so I can watch it!

    This show isn’t coming back until the end of August? Why the delay?

    • Kristen says:

      No delay. This is a summer series. Always has been.

      • Hmm says:

        That premiered its last few seasons more in the June/July time frame. This is late for the show. And as a “summer series” it would debut in June, aka the start of the summer, not August.

    Wasn’t he also Alex’s dad on Greys???

    This should be great! He is fantastic in all of his roles. Let’s not forget his role as Richard on Sex and the City. Even if his character was awful he was still fantastic playing that part.
