Michael C. Hall Will Put on Heels For Title Character of 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' on Broadway


Cool news Dexperts! Michael C. Hall will take over as the transgender title character in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Oct. 16, producers of the Tony Award-winning musical revival announced Monday.

The likable, edgy Hall, with his Broadway-tested pipes, will play the part through Jan. 4 at the Belasco Theatre.

Hall assumes the glitter-bedazzled baton from Andrew Rannells (formerly of “The Book of Mormon” and “Girls”), whose final bow is Oct. 12. Rannells replaced Neil Patrick Harris on Aug. 17 after the “How I Met You Mother” star’s Tony-winning turn.

Hall has stage experience on and off Broadway.

Last season he played a suburban husband in the elliptical drama “The Realistic Joneses” on Broadway. In 1999, he took over as the Emcee in “Cabaret.” He made his Broadway debut in 1996 as an understudy in “Skylight.”

Jennifer Carpenter to Star In USA Network's Middle Eastern Drama Pilot 'Stanistan'


Great news! Jennifer Carpenter returns to cable TV! She has been tapped to star in USA’s pilot Stanistan.

The drama follows the staff at the American compound in the Middle Eastern country of Stanistan, where State Department workers, covert CIA officers and journalists strike a delicate balance of danger and levity. Carpenter will play Public Affairs Officer Marcie Post, the daughter of a well-respected diplomat who becomes the newly appointed spin-master for all U.S. government activity in Stanistan.

Following her turn as foul-mouthed cop Debra Morgan on Dexter, Carpenter was slated to star in ABC’s drama pilot Sea of Fire, which failed to garner a pickup this past pilot season.

Stanistan was written by Andy Parker, who will serve as supervising producer, while Richard Scarth, Mary Louise Vitelli, and Maureen Ryan will co-executive-produce. Steve Scheffer will also executive-produce.

Jennifer Carpenter Joins 'The Evil Within' Voice Cast [Video]


It's been almost a year since the finale of Dexter, and Jennifer Carpenter has joined another project, this time for a video game. via EW: Resident Evil‘s creator, Shinji Mikami, is looking to strike fear into the hearts of players everywhere once again with his new game, The Evil Within. The title’s publisher, Bethesda Softworks, confirmed today that Mikami will have help from a voice cast full of actors who are no strangers to the genre.

Bethesda revealed that Watchmen and Freddy Krueger himself Jackie Earle Haley, as well as Dexter‘s Jennifer Carpenter, will voice some of the game’s main roles.

The Evil Within follows Detective Sebastian Castellanos, who Bethesda announced will be voiced by Hell on Wheels‘ Anson Mount. Castellanos and his partner Juli Kidman are thrown into a terrifying world of monsters and other horrors after they investigate a mass murder.

Haley stars as the antagonist, Ruvik, while Carpenter plays Castellanos’ partner Kidman in what marks a video game voice-over debut for both actors. While Kidman will likely not be as foul-mouthed as Carpenter’s previous detective character on Dexter, she’s certainly suited to the role—as is Haley, known for his turns as Rorschach and Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot. The Evil Within launches on Oct. 14 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.

Michael C. Hall Returns to TV to Star In Stanley Kubrick's 'God Fearing Man' Miniseries

Michael C. Hall is returning to the small screen. Nearly a year after the Emmy nominee wrapped Showtime's Dexter after an eight-season run, Hall is set to star in Stanley Kubrick's unproduced drama God Fearing Man, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

God Fearing Man tells the true story of Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson, who went on to become one of the best safecrackers and most successful American bank robbers in the early 20th century. Hall will star as Wilson and executive produce the drama, which was first put into development as a potential series at independent studio Entertainment One in August 2012. The project will be produced as a miniseries, with eOne shopping it to networks.

EOne is producing the drama in association with Philco Films' Steve Lanning (The Secret Garden, The World of Eddie Weary) and Philip Hobbs, who worked with Kubrick for more than 15 years on projects including Full Metal Jacket. Michael Rosenberg and Adam Blumberg will oversee on behalf of the studio. Bill Kelman will executive produce, with eOne handling worldwide rights to the series in all media.

"Kubrick's God Fearing Man presents a larger-than-life story with a complicated protagonist who undergoes a radical transformation. We knew we had to secure a leading man with the immense talent and charisma needed to carry the project, and we were dedicated to putting in the diligent time and effort to find the perfect fit,” said Rosenberg, eOne Television’s exec vp U.S. scripted television. “We cannot be more pleased to have Michael on board, who has time and again demonstrated an uncanny ability to portray captivating characters who must grapple with fundamental internal struggles.”

Hall earned five lead actor in a drama series Emmy nominations for his portrayal of Dexter Morgan, the serial killer with a code on Showtime's Dexter — which he also exec produced — as well as one nomination for his co-starring turn on HBO's Six Feet Under. Since Dexter wrapped last year, Hall has remained busy with indie film Cold in July and Broadway's The Realistic Joneses. He's also attached to adapt Matthew Specktor's American Dream Machine for Showtime with former Dexter showrunner Scott Buck attached.
Meanwhile, Showtime remains mum on a potential Dexter spinoff, which network president David Nevins said would have to involve Hall.

Hall is repped by UTA, Authentic Talent and Peikoff Mahan.
