10 Sports Stars That Could Be 'Dexter' Stunt Doubles

'Dexter' is not a show for the weak at heart. It's a show based on the life of Dexter Morgan, who works for the Miami Police Department as a forensic blood analyst. But, he also doubles as a serial killer. How does that work? Dexter believes in taking the law into his own hands and he only kills other people that have killed or people that deserve it. Yes, it's a fairly bizarre concept. But after just a few episodes, you'll be hooked as long as you can deal with a little pretend violence.

The entire show is obviously based around Dexter, but it's all the supporting characters that make the show really work. There's a whole other cast of talented actors and actresses to keep you entertained episode after episode. Because the show is based people that work for Miami PD, you'll easy be able to find characters to love and hate, as most of them have strong personalities.

'Dexter' is now a show of the past, as the last episode aired in fall of 2013. In total their were eight seasons and most of them are more than solid. There are a couple of seasons that aren't as good as others, but that's the case with every show. The ending of the show was controversial, but don't worry, you won't find any spoilers here.

In this slideshow we'll re-cast the show's main characters with star athletes. Most of these are look-a-likes and some share the same characteristics. Overall, most of them could pass as stunt doubles. As for the acting? I'm sure most of these athletes would fail miserably if they had to fill in for one of the main characters. Enjoy:

These two somewhat look a like and we all know that Brady gets that crazy look in his eyes at times.

You have to find a hottie to play the part of the gorgeous Hannah McKay. Anna Kournikova is the perfect fit.

One Batista for another here. Dave is no longer fighting or wrestling, and he's actually been in a few films as of late.

Debra Morgan - Hope Solo

These two look an awful lot alike.

Harry Morgan - Jerry Sloan

These two look similar and Jerry Sloan could easily give Dexter a pep talk.

Jamie Batista - AJ Lee

Perfect match here with these two. AJ Lee is actually a pretty good actress and could probably do just fine in the role of Jamie Batista.

Vince Masuka - Shane Victorino

Who doesn't love Masuka? Victorino's bald head makes him a solid match.

Joey Quinn - Jay Cutler

Quinn isn't the most popular guy in the show and Culter isn't the most popular QB in the NFL.

Maria Laguerta - Serena Williams

Serena could play the authoritative Maria Laguerta.

Rita Morgan - Victoria Azarenka

Azarenka is a good match for Dexter's wife looks-wise. But could she be as annoying as Rita?
