VIDEO: Michael C. Hall Sings Live With His Stage Band 'Tits of Clay'

It is called talent, and Michael C. Hall has plenty of it. Yesterday he performed a song with his 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' band 'Tits of Clay' at The Hills NYC, and he nailed it! Hit the play button below and enjoy!

Michael C. Hall Talks Hedwig, Exorcising Dexter, and Spin-off / a 'Recontextualized Dexter'

via thedailybeast: Michael C. Hall’s Hedwig is a self-proclaimed “girlyboy” growing up in East Berlin who falls in love with Luther Robinson, a U.S. soldier stationed abroad. Since their union must consist of a man and a woman, Hedwig is forced to undergo a sex change operation in order to be married—but it’s botched, leaving her with a one-inch scar between her legs. Eventually, she ends up fronting a glam rock band called “The Angry Inch,” named after her malformed vagina. And Hall, stepping into the glittery shoes once occupied by Tony-winner Neil Patrick Harris, is an absolute riot in the role, jumping off cars, air-kicking, and lap-dancing, all while belting out a roster of addictive rock tunes and sporting a plethora of designer wigs, hot pants, platform heels, and heaps of makeup.

The outrĂ© character is sure to throw even the most ardent fans of the Golden Globe winner for a loop. After all, Hall is best known for his masterful portraits of quiet storms, e.g. David Fisher of Six Feet Under or the title character in Dexter—characters whose eerily calm veneers belie inner turmoil. But believe it or not, Hall grew up with a penchant for far sunnier material, first singing in a series of choirs and then performing in high school musical productions of The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, and Fiddler on the Roof.

Hall’s on a strict diet for the 7-performance-a-week show—one that not only requires him to cut out carbs, but also demands 40 minutes in the makeup chair each night.

So, while picking at a pair of grilled shrimp appetizers, we discuss everything from grinding on buttoned-up Broadway patrons to Dexter’s finale—and possible future.

You’ve starred in two Broadway plays back-to-back with The Realistic Joneses and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Was this an inch you’d wanted to scratch while on Dexter?
Yeah. I had told my representatives that I was interested in doing a play again and getting back onstage, but I was interested in doing a new play by a young, preferably even American playwright. The Realistic Joneses fit the bill. And then this emerged. I do think that, with Dexter ending and Six Feet Under, that’s 13 years of playing two characters with small breaks here and there. It really predominated my experience of being an actor, and both characters were fraught with a certain tension, sense of conflict, and interior turmoil. There was a desire to perform an exorcism. Realistic Joneses got it started, and I think Hedwig has really cracked the nut; it’s completely recalibrated my instrument, and has been therapeutic. I’ll probably descend into a deep, dark depression when it’s over, but it’s great for now.

C.S. Lee Lands Recurring Role on HBO's 'True Detective' Season 2


Great news via THR: Dexter alum C.S. Lee, who played Dexter's smart-ass lab rat partner in crime Masuka, is the latest addition to the season two cast of HBO's hit drama series True Detective.

The eight-episode sophomore season, now in production in California, centers on three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

Lee will recur as Richard Geldof, a state attorney general with grand political ambitions. Described as smooth and polished, the character is well-spoken and intelligent, with an unmoored moral compass.

Colin Farrell stars as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn is set as Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.
