TCA: 'Dexter,' quite a follow-up gig
Michael C. Hall was nominated for an Emmy Thursday for his nuanced portrayal of "Dexter" the serial killer who is hard not to like.
On Friday, during a press tour panel at the Beverly Hilton, Hall, who made a name for himself playing a gay man on "Six Feet Under" for six seasons, was asked how his family reacted to news that his next TV gig would be playing a serial killer.
"As long as you're not kissing a black man!" Hall said. The room erupted in laughter.
Hall continued: "But if I hadn't kissed a black man, I wouldn't be a serial killer. They were somehow weirdly comfortable with it."
