Michael C. Hall

Who didn't love Michael C. Hall as David Fisher in HBO classic Six Feet Under?

But whilst we may have loved - even sometimes identified with - the closeted, sometimes self-hating, sometimes courageous, often uptight funeral director with a sleazy streak, he wasn't often sexy.

But Michael C. Hall is making up for that in his new role as the title character of Showtime's Dexter. This could be a worry as he plays Dexter Morgan, a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a vigilante serial killer. The show is different, stylish, disturbing. Still sexy though.

Although straight, Hall has impeccable gay credientials. In 1999 he was cast as Emcee in Sam Mendes' Broadway revival of Cabaret. When Mendes directed American Beauty, scripted by Alan Ball, he suggested Hall for the David Fisher role.
