TCA: 'Dexter,' quite a follow-up gig

July 18, 2008 |  5:42 pm


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."
