Julie Benz, the immensely likable actress who plays Rita on the immensely likable Dexter, is taking yet another trip into the macabre. She's just signed on to star in Saw V. There have been four of these snuff films already and they continue to be oddly successful. How much more abuse can we take? How much more can she take? Between this, the bloody Dexter, and the bodies-exploding Rambo, Benz is crafting quite a grim resume. I should invite her to go see Funny Games with me so we can have Michael Haneke tell us what's wrong with us. [Empire]
