The Michael C. Hall divorce plans announced just ahead of the "Dexter" actor's Golden Globe nomination Tuesday finds him the lone nominee in his category without a long-term partner lined up to walk the red carpet.
"Boardwalk Empire" star Steve Buscemi has been married to Jo Andres since 1987. They have a son, Lucian, born in 1990.
Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad" met second wife Robin Dearden when she made an appearance on his 1984-87 show "Airwolf." Daughter Taylor was born in 1993.
Hugh Laurie has been married to Jo Green since 1989, with sons Charlie and Bill born in 1988 and '89 and a daughter, Rebecca, arriving in 1993.
And though his "Mad Men" character is gearing up for a second trip to the altar, Jon Hamm has never been married, though he and actress Jennifer Westfeldt have been together for more than a decade.
"I don't have the marriage chip," Hamm told Parade in July.
Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, his wife of two years, play brother and sister on the Showtime series. He was nominated Tuesday for best television actor in a drama, the category he won in 2010. Reps confirmed their plan to split, saying the two have been "separated for some time."
Hall rallied against cancer last year to take home his trophy; comparatively, divorce should be a breeze.
