HOLLYWOOD — HOLLYWOOD-- --Sometimes having a dirty mouth is all a lady needs.

Jennifer Carpenter, the young actress who contorted herself acrobatically in The Exorcism of Emily Rose, had never worked in television, but she really wanted to play the gung-ho cop sister of a serial killer who kills serial killers on Showtime's most-watched series, Dexter.

Dexter airs at 10 p.m. Sundays on Showtime.
