Michael C.-Hall

Bio

In his role as one of television's most fascinating characters, Michael C. Hall is having a killer career. Michael  (the 'C' is for Carlisle) was born on February 1, 1971, in Raleigh, North Carolina. he attended the MFA program at New York University and got his start on the stage, starring in a number of off-Broadway plays (mostly Shakespeare) and got his big break on Broadway as the emcee in the revival of Cabaret, directed by Sam Mendes. Mendes recommended Michael to his friend, American Beauty screenwriter Alan Ball, when he was looking to cast his new HBO series Six Feet Under, and in 2001 he won the role of the troubled, homosexual funeral home director 'David Fisher.' His work on the show brought him critical acclaim and earned him an Emmy nomination for best Supporting Actor and winning two Screen Actors Guild awards for Best Ensemble Cast in 2003 and 2004. He returned to Broadway in 2003 for the musical Chicago and his sole film role was in Mel Gibson's Payback in 2003. After Six Feet Under wrapped in 2005, Michael again took on a challenging and complicated character in 2006 as serial killer and police blood splatter expert 'Dexter Morgan' on the Showtime series Dexter. He chose wisely as he has been nominated for two consecutive Golden Globe awards for the role. Michael's career got a surprise boost when the first season of Dexter aired on CBS during the writers' strike of 2007. While audiences eagerly await the third season of his hit show, Michael is making his second big screen appearance in the film Game with Gerard Butler. With back-to-back successes, Michael has made a great start to what fans hope will be a long career.

    Michael C. Hall was in "Paycheck" with Ben Affeck, not "Payback" with Mel Gibson. Close....
