Cable gigs are so stylish these days, another movie star name is flocking to television: Julia Stiles.

Stiles has signed up for a guest starring role on Showtime’s serial killer drama ‘Dexter‘ for 10 of the 12 episodes on the upcoming season.

No stranger to thrillers (she costarred in ‘The Bourne Identity‘ franchise), Stiles will play “a mysterious young woman who forms a unique relationship with Dexter (Michael C. Hall) in the wake of the death of his wife,” according to the release.

As previously reported, Julie Benz will be back as the dearly and gruesomely departed Rita when Season 5 premieres in September — for one episode — in a plot line still under wraps.

Michael C. Hall better watch out … Stiles knows how to handle natural ‘Bourne’ killers.
