Warning: May contain spoilers.
Winters was most recently seen in the romantic comedy P.S. I Love You where he costarred with Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler and Lisa Kudrow of Friends. On the small screen, he joined Rescue Me as Johnny Gavin, Tommy’s (Denis Leary) well-connected police officer of a younger brother who was shot to death during a stake-out at the end of the season 3. His other credits included 30 Rock, Sex and the City and Third Watch, just to name a few.
Winters, who is also known for his portrayal of the Machiavellian Ryan O’Reily on HBO’s Oz, is set to make his debut appearance on The Sarah Connor Chronicles on its pilot episode airing Sunday, January 13 at 8pm. The 43-year-old actor plays Charley Dixon, who is rumored to be Sarah Connor’s (Lena Headey) fiancé.
In the series premiere, Sarah Connor struggles to keep her son John Connor (Thomas Dekker) away from an enemy Terminator from the future. She uproots their lives, consequently abandoning her fiancé and taking her son to live in a small town in New Mexico where he meets Cameron (Summer Glau), who eventually becomes his protector.
Following the first part of the pilot, Winters will be appearing on the second part of the premiere of The Sarah Connor Chronicles entitled “Gnothi Seauton,” which is slated to air on Monday, January 14 at 9pm. In this installment, Sarah makes contact with an old friend to ask a favor, while John decides to pay a visit to Sarah’s ex and Cameron makes a new friend.
Besides the Terminator series, fans can also catch Dean Winters in the big screen when his film Sweet Flame hits the theaters later this year.
