According to an exclusive report from Hollywood Reporter, Wu Tang’s RZA isn’t the only one that’s set for a new appearance on television. Mos Def has been tapped to appear in multiple episodes of the upcoming sixth season of the Showtime series Dexter, the site reported this week.

Mos Def’s character — his name was not revealed — will make appearances across multiple episodes, but the exact number isn’t clear at this point.

The sixth season of Dexter is set to begin production sometime in the spring of 2011.
