Dexter’s Michael C. Hall Heading To Broadway [Rumor]
Next month Michael C. Hall will be back in contract negotiations with Showtime over his hit serial killer series Dexter and in the meantime rumors are circulating that Hall is already in negotiations to star in the Big Fish musical which will open in the Spring of 2012.
Hall actually appeared on stage before his breakout role in Six Feet Under and continuing career in Dexter. Michael’s stage credits include off-Broadway productions of Cymbeline and Macbeth.
According to BroadwayWorld.com:
“Susan Stroan will direct the stage adaptation of the Tim Burton film, which will feature music by Andrew Lippa. Hugh Jackman was originally rumored to star in the production, but ‘his movie schedule got in the way and the producers turned to Hall.”
The move comes after Michael battled cancer in 2010, a disease even his own agents didn’t know he had at first, after being given a clean bill of health Hall returned to his hit series.
It’s still unclear at this time if the Broadway production is a sign that Dexter will soon be coming to an end or if Hall simply plans to work on his craft during the off-season of Dexter production.
Do you want to see Michael C. Hall take on the lead role in Big Fish? I personally close my eyes and picture him as Dexter, perhaps other fans of the show will have better suspension of disbelief.
