Brad Carter to Appear on HBO's TRUE DETECTIVE
Actor Brad Carter is known for his roles in "Dexter," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Justified," and other series over the past few years. Today, Carter has carved out a perfect niche for himself in film and television series portraying complicated characters on the edge. And that's exactly where he wants to be.
For example, one need look no further than HBO's new powerhouse mini-series "True Detective" starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, where Carter plays the recurring character Charlie Lange, a low-brow white supremacist and ex-husband of Dora Lange whose murder the series revolves around.
"True Detective" follows the lives of detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) as they lead the 17-year hunt for a bizarre serial killer. The show airs Sundays at 9 p.m. Carter, who was featured in the show's premiere on Jan. 12, is set to appear again in the Feb. 9 episode.
"Charlie Lange is kind of a lowlife with a troubled background who's on the edge." Carter Said. "We don't know whether to trust him or not, and that's exactly the kind of character I love to play."
With a slew of roles over the past 10 years, playing characters from the guy next door to cold-blooded killers, Carter has made his mark with his intensity and ability to own a role like few other actors in television and film today.
Carter gained attention for his role of Rankin in "Dexter" during the premier episode of the show's fifth season in 2010, where he played a biker who is killed by the show's star in the heat of the moment. He became the first victim who is killed by Dexter (Michael C. Hall) who went against his own code of only killing criminals who have escaped justice.
"People remember that character I played because he's the kind of guy you love to see get what's coming to him. I have to say I'm a little bit proud that I played the first character that was killed against Dexter's own code, I mean how cool of a club is that to be in?" Carter said.
