Michael C. Hall Talks About the Series Finale, Spin-off and His Post-Dexter Career For THR

via THRMichael C. Hall recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about what he thought of Dexter's controversial ending and how he plans to move on from his Emmy-nominated role as a serial killer.

Dexter is a unique role that has the potential to really define an actor. How conscious are you of the "Dexter baggage" in deciding what roles to play?
There's no individual role that is going to undo the Dexter-ization of your image, but it's nice just to continue to move forward and start to mix it up. The biggest thing is not being bound by the schedule of having to return again and again to the same TV show.

How conscious of it am I? I was conscious of it when I looked at the Cold in July script and saw that my character killed someone in the first few pages. The context, though, in which that happens is so fundamentally different, both in terms of the character himself and the world he's living in. Frankly, it was therapeutic to do this on the heels of Dexter and to play someone who has a greater sense of human remorse. That's actually how I felt after Dexter ended. I realized there was a part of myself that I probably had short-circuited so I could play someone who was able to kill someone and go have a sandwich. One of the first spontaneous thoughts I had when it was all over was, "What have I done?"

On the heels of playing David Fisher [in Six Feet Under] and Dexter, what is like now to play a character with a finite arc, where you know how his story will end? Is there something freeing about it?
There something really fun about it. It's like having love affairs after a marriage. You're there and then it's over. It's very refreshing to put things down you know you won't pick up again.

When did you know how Dexter would end?
I knew broad-stroke-wise only when we were going into the final season. I had the sense of how Dexter might end at different junctures over the life of the show, but those started to fall away as we moved forward. Read the full interview, below!

Michael C. Hall Knows Everyone Hated the Dexter Finale: "Liked It? I Don’t Think I Even Watched It"

via Michael C. Hall knows you hated the ending of Dexter. He isn’t even sure he liked the ending himself.

“Liked it? I don’t think I even watched it,” he says of the finale, which aired last September. The once-gripping saga of the nerdy blood spatter analyst ended on a flabbergasting note, with the death of Dexter’s adoptive sister Debra; his self-exile from his kids, his job, and Miami; and his transition into a new career as…a lumberjack. Hall chooses his words carefully when discussing his feelings about that last episode. “I thought it was narratively satisfying—but it was not so savory.”

“I think the show had lost a certain amount of torque,” he says. “Just inherently because of how long we’d done it, because of the storytelling capital we’d spent, because our writers may have been gassed. Maybe some people wanted a more satisfying—maybe they wanted a happy ending for him, either a happy ending or a more definitive sense of closure. They wanted him to die or something, but I think the fact that he’s sort of exiled in a prison of his own making is, for my money, pretty fitting.” Read the whole article by skipping the jump.

Michael C. Hall: "Sometimes I Wish Dexter Had Died"

via IGN: It’s been about eight months since we saw Dexter Morgan meet his log-cabin fate. Showtime, however, has been reluctant to let go of their successful serial killer series. There’s been talk of not just a Dexter spin-off series, but a Dexter spin-off series featuring none other than…Dexter.

IGN had the chance to speak with the Dark Defender himself, Michael C. Hall, recently for his upcoming crime drama Cold in July. During the conversation, IGN touched on the proposed Dexter spin-off series, to which the actor responded that he had, “no immediate plans” to revisit the role. Hall joked that this one would be the show in which Dexter "goes around chopping down all of the bad trees."

Adding in a more serious vein that he'd "learned to never say never."

"It's very difficult for me to imagine someone coming up with something that is compelling enough for that to be worth doing," Hall continued. "I certainly have no interest right now in playing Dexter. You know, some time passes and somebody has some newly imagined landscape for him that I feel is worth exploring, I would perhaps consider it. Beyond that vague notion, I really can't say, and it's not something I have any immediate plans to do. He is still alive, but for right now, I'm leaving him in the cabin."

Michael C. Hall Talks Series Finale and Spin-off: "Dexter Got What He Deserved -- If Someone Comes Up With a Spin-off Idea, I'll Look at It"

via Zap2it: Michael C. Hall was on "Watch What Happens Live" Thursday May 15 with his current Broadway co-star Toni Collette. The fan questions were all about Dexter, which bowed out last fall in a controversial series finale. Hall says he thinks the finale was appropriate.

"I think that he got what he decided he deserved," says Hall. "He exiled himself, because it became clear to him that interaction with the world and the people he cared about did nothing but ultimately destroy the people he cared about. ... I think he got what he deserved, I feel good about it."

Host Andy Cohen then says that fans were mad about the ending and Hall agrees. "I think they wanted something else, something more definitive, or happier or more satisfying, or maybe they wanted him to die. I don't know. But he didn't even get that out," he says.

Then Hall quips, "Now he just cuts down the bad trees."

But later, another caller asks if he misses the show and then if he'd be open to a spinoff series.

"Yes, I loved doing the series. It felt like getting away with something, it felt like getting away with murder, literally," says Hall. "Getting a job as an actor feels that way generally, but more to the point with 'Dexter.'

"As far as a spinoff goes, it's hard for me to imagine what that would be. I couldn't come up with that idea. If someone does, I'll look at it. But it's tough to say. ... Maybe I could have cameo appearances on a show called 'Masuka.'"
