Thomas Dekker Joins 'Backstrom' at Fox

Thomas Dekker is headed back to TV.

The 26-year-old former Secret Circle star has re-joined Backstrom, which hopped networks from CBS to Fox, TVGuide reports.

Thomas will play Gregory Valentine — the same role he held in the original project — a day, whip-smart former hustler-turned-entrepreneurial crook who acts as Backstrom’s connection to the underworld.

The show, based on the books by Swedish criminologist/novelist Leif G.W. Persson, centers on an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior.
