    Well this makes up for Hannah coming back. So excited.

  3. LaRay says:

    Brilliant!!! If he hunts down Dex i’m gonna have a tough time hatng him. Curtis “Lemonhead” Lemansky is one of my favorite TV characters of all time.
    For the record, I’m thrilled Hannah is back.

  4. JennyS says:

    You think he might be hunting Hannah McKay?

  5. Sara says:

    He looked very familiar but the ONLY thing on his IMDB I’ve seen was his one Mentalist episode. I’m no genius, so I guess he has one of those memorable faces

      Sons of Anarchy, The Shield, Burn Notice. Should be a great addition.

    • Mary S says:

      He was also on Saving Grace with Holly Hunter and Leon Rippey. Another great show that ended too soon! He was one of the detectives with whom she had an exciting affair…he looked a lot better then! I wonder what caused his looks to go, so quickly? It could be make-up to create a more sinister appearance, I suppose…

  8. AMAZING!!!!! This Season is going to be killer!!! Love son of anarchy and the shield can’t wait for this!!!

  9. dude says:

    he was great on Burn Notice as well

  10. Ben says:

    Kenny Johnson was also great opposite Holly Hunter on TNT’s Saving Grace.

  11. Julie says:

    Please don’t blow him up again! Love this news, love him.

    Dude is why does Kenny Johnson have a date rape face… Or a face like a dodgy uncle from the south that you wouldn’t leave you 5 year old kids with? Dexter rules the time it takes to observe he’s next kill and the way he executes it….. And how he makes deb bend for him and how deb does stove to save dexter coz of her romance towards him lol its kinda sick but then again their not blood siblings and it put a very nice twist in season 7
