Michael C. Hall To Play Transgender Rocker In Broadway's 'Hedwig And The Angry Inch'

September 9th, 2014 8:21am EDT
Michael C Hall
"Dexter" and "Six Feet Under" star Michael C. Hall is joining the cast of Broadway's "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." The actor will play the titular East German transgender rocker.

Hall will join the production on Oct. 16 and play the character through Jan. 4. He will be taking over for current topliner Andrew Rannells, according to Variety.

Neil Patrick Harris famously won a Tony for the role, and producers hope Hall's TV reputation will draw an audience during the profitable holiday season.

Hall has quite a bit of theater experience. He starred in last season's "The Realistic Joneses" as...

Review: Authentically Unique 'Cold In July' Keeps Mickle In Master Of Mood Territory

May 23rd, 2014 12:20pm EDT
Review: Authentically Unique 'Cold In July' Keeps Mickle In Mast
I admit it – I’m a huge Jim Mickle fan. Right from the filmmaker’s debut with the best of the 8 Films To Die For flick titled "Mulberry St.," there was obvious evidence of skilled craftsmanship. Following it up with the dark and visceral "Stake Land" and the five-star slow burn cannibal yarn "We Are What We Are" (firmly on my Top Ten list last year) showed that Mickle was not some hack – his genius was no fluke. So it’s fitting that his latest outing "Cold In July," based on the novel by "Bubba Ho-Tep" short story scribe Joe R. Lansdale, keeps in tone the director’s master of mood monike...

Michael C. Hall And Jennifer Carpenter Reunite?

Jennifer Carpenter , Michael C. Hall-TSB-007751.jpg
Dexter actor Michael C. Hall has sparked rumors of a reconciliation with his ex-wife Jennifer Carpenter after the co-stars were spotted walking arm-in-arm in California on Wednesday.

The couple's divorce was finalized in December, a year after Carpenter moved to end her two-year marriage, but now it appears the former lovers have reignited the spark in their relationship - they were snapped enjoying a romantic stroll along Venice Beach and cuddling on a bench.

The reunion won't come as too much of a surprise for fans - last year, Carpenter insisted there was no love lost between the coupl...

Michael C. Hall & Jennifer Carpenter
Dexter actor Michael C. Hall is a single man again after his divorce from co-star Jennifer Carpenter was finalized in Los Angeles last week.

The couple wed in 2008 but actress Carpenter filed for divorce from Hall last summer, citing irreconcilable differences.

And now the pair's marriage is officially over - Superior Court Judge John Sandoz made the duo's split official on Friday.

But although the two are no longer legally married, Carpenter insists she and her ex-husband will forever remain friends, especially since they continue to star in the same show.

After being visited by his dead brother last week, Dexter Morgan is a little messed up in this week's Dexter. Who could blame him? Plus, we take a step back to the fantastic fourth season...

If Brother Sam was the angel in Dexter's life, Brian (Christian Camargo) does a great job of being the devil on the other shoulder. "You don't turn the other cheek, you slice it," he reminds Dex, whose world is further rocked when Debra informs him that Arthur Mitchell's wife and daughter have been killed. She thinks it's the Trinity Killer striking again, but Dexter knows better. He suspects th...

'Dexter' Recap: 'Just Let Go' (6.06)

November 6th, 2011 10:00pm EST

This week's Dexter sees our hero make an important decision about his direction in life...while those around him continue to have no idea where they're headed.

Dex gets the news from Deb that Brother Sam has been shot, which forces him to abandon his stalking of Travis and makes him seriously angry. He quickly zeroes in on Leo Hernandez, a gang member who replaced the man Dex killed. He doesn't get a chance to exact justice, though, as Leo is shot and killed in a standoff with the cops.

All should be well, but Dexter finds himself not so convinced of Leo's guilt after all. The r...

If last week's Dexter was more of a standalone episode, this week's throws us right back into the season-long arc, inducing squirms and gasps in equal measure.

Dexter's decided to go to the baptism Brother Sam invited him to after all, even though the idea of religious faith goes right over his head. It's too bad that they don't have time to have a discussion, because it might've come in handy when Dex is called out to deal with the "wicked rodeo" we saw at the end of last week's episode. New guy Mike (Billy Brown) quickly points out to the Metro team that it has something to do w...

'Dexter' Recap: 'Smokey and the Bandit' (6.03)

Last week's Dexter gave us a good idea where season six is headed. This week, we see a little more - just enough to get me concerned about that direction - but you'll have to wait for the real surprises.

Dexter's got a bad feeling when a murdered prostitute reminds him of the modus operandi of a serial killer he once tracked. He's convinced that the now-elderly Walter Kenney (Ronny Cox) hasn't come to Miami just to retire. Getting close to Kenney is not a good time for Dex, who has to suffer through the man's horrible golf game and near-constant complaining. It's funny if only for th...

And now Hall has shown his support for the cancer community by showing up at UCLA's Drake Stadium to participate in the On Track for a Cure walk-a-thon to raise money in a bid to help researchers find a cure.

The actor later addressed the crowd and looked on as patients, family members and care givers gathered to hear speeches from ...

He might be a serial killer, but this week's Dexter left me wanting to hug Dexter Morgan - after all, he's just realized that he may be his son's worst enemy.

Harrison's getting older now, and Dexter is disturbed to find out that his son has picked up on some of his father's habits, making repeated references to "daddy's box" of blood slides. Having previously stated that he doesn't want to pass his Dark Passenger on to the tot, Dex makes a painful decision at episode's end: that he can no longer show his son his real nature, only the one that everyone else believes to be true.

Previewing 'Dexter' Season 6 With Jennifer Carpenter

Dexter Morgan has sliced his way into a bloody niche on TV. As it begins its sixth season tonight, Showtime's Dexter can boast both critical acclaim and an audience that's enraptured by the life of Miami's most loved serial killer. Dexter's biggest supporter - and also the largest threat to his lethal secret - is his sister, homicide detective Debra Morgan.

The show might be called Dexter, but Deb has been my favorite character on the series. She might have a smart mouth, but beyond that, she has an earnestness to bust the bad guys that I find admirable. She also displays a remarka...

TV On DVD: 'Dexter: Season Five'

This week, CBS Home Entertainment released season five of Showtime's hit series Dexter on DVD and Blu-Ray. Here's my look inside the DVD version.

The Show

After a spectacular fourth season (I don't know about you, but I have a really hard time watching John Lithgow in those 3rd Rock from the Sun reruns now), Dexter had a tough act to follow. While I don't dislike season five as much as some fans, I can see where their disappointment comes from - it's a worthwhile go, but the standard was set high and it didn't quite get there.

Dexter left off with Lumen in the clutches of Jordan Chase, and Jordan in everyone else's crosshairs. It didn't reach the shock and awe value of the season four finale, but it certainly was a good one.

Dexter is determined to save Lumen like he couldn't save Rita, and ends up as Jordan's second captive at the scene of his very first crime. Jonny Lee Miller is at his creepy, disturbing best here; I'm going to need to watch a lot of Eli Stone to get this one out of my head. When he calls Dexter "no different than the idiots who show up at my seminars," you just have to laugh at how l...
