Spotlight On Michael C. Hall
Michael C. Hall may be fairly new to the movie scene, but he is one of the most talented actors in the business. Best known for his roles as David Fisher in Six Feet Under and Dexter Morgan in Dexter, Michael started out in theater and various Broadway shows. His true acting talent shines as he portrays two completely opposite characters in Six Feet Under and Dexter, both believable and award winning.

Michael discussed his portrayal of Dexter in a 2006 interview, "I think Dexter is a man who… a part of himself is very much frozen, or arrested in a place that is pre-memory, pre-conscious, pre-verbal. Something very traumatic happened to him, he doesn't know what that is. And I think on some level he wants to know. He denies his humanity, he describes himself as someone who is without feeling, and yet I think that he maybe suspects - in a way that maybe isn't even conscious yet when we first meet him - that he is in fact a human being ... Dexter's a unique killer in that his father saw his dark impulses, shined a light on them, and told Dexter that he saw them, he accepted them, that Dexter is good and that he is worthy of love. And I think that's what enables him to focus his energies in this unique way."
