Apparently the creator of Dexter, James Manos Jr. will be directing a movie called Love, Scotch, and Death. Guess who he picked for the lead? Michael C. Hall of course! The movie will start shooting in November after the highly anticipated Season 6 of Dexter. I expect the movie to be a dark comedy. It is supposed to be based on James Manos Jr.’s own life, but the details aren’t totally clear, yet.
In other news, Michael was at the Newport Beach Film Festival a few days ago for East Fifth Bliss.
Finally, the Dexter: Season Five DVDs are now available for pre-order!
A great interview with Michael at FilmCritic.com.
Some choice quotes:
Q: Dexter is must-see television for so many people. What’s must-see TV for you?
A: I watch a lot of sports on TV. As far as series go, I often catch up with stuff. I just picked up all of the DVDs of Breaking Bad, which I haven’t seen yet. I’m looking forward to doing a marathon of that. Just recently, I made my way through The Wire well after the fact. That show is mind-blowing. The expansiveness of their storytelling is just unbelievable, and I think Omar is one of the greatest characters in the history of television.
Q: Is the upcoming Dexter season going to be your last?
A: I can’t say for sure, but probably not. [Laughs]
Read the original article for some spoilers about Peep World!
Michael C. Hall’s wife and co-star, Jennifer Carpenter, recently spoke to The Los Angeles Times as well and had a little mention about Michael in the article. Since they are such a quiet couple, I thought some fans might be interested in reading the article which can be found here. Here is the direct line relating to Michael.
Playing siblings when they are actually married does not pose a problem for the couple.
“Looking in Michael’s eyes when we’re doing a scene together is different when he’s relaxed. I’m relating to Dexter.” – Jennifer Carpenter
Hall said, “We really do respect the sacredness we have on screen. We keep that aspect separate and quiet.”
Michael was interviewed with the other producers and he had this to add about the actress:
“Jennifer has this astonishing ability to convey undeniable ferocity and heartbreaking vulnerability in the space of a second. I am amazed by her. She has a fierce guardianship over her characters’ truth.” – Michael C. Hall
Vancouver Sun has published a great article in which Michael discusses what the future holds for the status of the show, and his career after, “I’d like to play more normal, everyday characters under extraordinary circumstances, as opposed to characters who are uniquely extraordinary at something.” The article confirms that a sixth season is in order, but it is unknown at this time beyond that. Read on!
Everyone dies, Jonny Lee Miller’s self-help guru – and suspected serial kidnapper – Jordan Chase said in a recent episode of Dexter.
And every story has an end, even Dexter Morgan’s.
In person, Michael C. Hall, the veteran Broadway actor who has played moonlighting vigilante murderer Dexter Morgan for five seasons on the Emmy-nominated Dexter, is circumspect and soft-spoken – about his personal battle with cancer, about the dividing line between real life and playing a fictional character, and about his character’s future. However it ends for Dexter Morgan, Hall told Postmedia News it can’t end well.

Third Age has a brief article with Michael C. Hall, check it out below!
Dexter‘s leading man – Michael C. Hall has nearly 2 million viewers a week hooked as his titular serial killer slices and dices bad guys on Showtime’s thriller Dexter (Sundays, 9 p.m.). The Golden Globe winner, 39, who is married to costar Jennifer Carpenter, 30, opens up to Us.
Q: Dexter is gory. Ever get squeamish?
Nah! If that stuff were actually real, I’d be as squeamish as anybody. But as long as I know it’s fake, I’m totally fine.
Q: Is it odd that fans root for a killer?
I’m comfortable with people rooting for me because I make- pretend kill!
Q: How are you doing, healthwise?
I feel great. The Hodgkin’s lymphoma is in remission. My treatment ended months ago, and my energy is back.
Q: After being on Dexter and Six Feet Under, what do you want to do next?
I’d love to do something where I never encounter a dead body!
There’s little on-set PDA with Carpenter, says Hall: “We pride ourselves on being professional.”
Michael is on the cover of TV Guide magazine’s October 11-17 issue! He’s featured on two separate covers that are fabulous! This shoot is awesome and he looks great!

Tomorrow the Los Angeles Times Magazine will feature an indepth interview with Michael C. Hall in their new feature , QinLA. The North Carolina-by-way-of-New York transplant thinks LA’s cultural diversity is underrated, has big love for Lebowski, and still cherishes his Thomas Guide as he cruises Hollywood’s storied streets. Oh, and the former Six Feet Undertaker and current blood spatter expert/serial killer (on TV, of course) recalls running into O.J. Simpson at a bar on Sunset.
