Chris Pratt Is In 'Advanced Talks' to Portray Young Dexter Morgan In the Dexter Prequel Series

Chris Pratt as young Dexter? It is very, very likely.



'Guardians of the Galaxy', 'Jurassic World' and 'The Super Mario Bros. Movie' star Chris Pratt is eyed by Paramount/Showtime to become the new Dexter Morgan. According to THR, the 43 year-old actor who's one of Hollywood's biggest stars for the last decade, is currently in 'advanced talks and negotiations' to play 23 year-old Dexter in the prequel about America's favorite serial killer, that was officially ordered to series back on February 6th.

As it was already been revealed by Showtime a couple of months ago, "the prequel series will dramatize young Dexter Morgan at the outset of his transition into the avenging serial killer he would become. Set in the Miami that was a hotbed of real serial killers of his time, the show will begin as Dexter graduates college to join Miami Metro, where he meets younger versions of many of the characters we came to know in the original Dexter. And, of course, the show will also focus on Dexter’s family, including a very-much-alive Harry and a very formidable, teenage Deb."

It is no secret that Chris Pratt was always a huge Dexter fan, and if there will be an agreement between him and the network, "it will definitely be the most exciting moment of his career so far", his agent Helene Beesly told The Hollywood Reporter. When asked about Pratt and the significant age gap between him and the role of young Dexter, Beesly suggested that "age is not always an issue when it comes to roles".

Happy April Fools Day! 😁
