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.
