Michael C. Hall May Leave Dexter For A Big Fish

Ooh, we're torn on this!

Rumor has it that Michael C. Hall is being given some serious consideration to take the lead role in the Broadway production of Big Fish. The show won't start until next year, but since he would be taking the lead role, we imagine taking the part would mean the end of Dexter after a possible seventh season.

Now, we know you all love your Dexter, and rightly so, but we've got to say, we'd love to see Michael go back to his roots. If you caught him in Cabaret or Chicago, you'd be agreeing with us. Plus, this show has got some serious talent behind it - Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks, who produced the Tim Burton-directed film, are producing. Susan Stroman is directing and Andrew Lippa has the music all set.

What's interesting to us is that originally, this part was carved out for Hugh Jackman. However, his movie schedule just couldn't allow it, so the producers moved to Michael.

Um, is everyone avoid the obvious? What about Ewan McGreggor? He can sing. He can dance. And he's the man who started it all! Why the hell not?

Like we said, toooorn!

    Considering the producers said Dexter will be around for at least 2 more seasons, I wouldn't worry.

    If he leaves this show you might as well drive a knife right through my solar plexus too :(

    NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.
    We TV people NEED Dexter (Micheal C. Hall). I don't see broadway shows!!!! I live in Texas for christs sake. 6 Feet Under…..BRILLIANT! Dexter…..BRILLIANT! I hate to see Dexter end but it has to sometime and I am sure the next TV project he'd be involved in would be just as brilliant as the 2 i mentioned. I am NOT a fan of musicals (although I would kill to see the Book of Morman) so I am biased in that way. The end of Dexter will just break my little black heart!

    As much as I love Dexter, I think it's time is reaching an end. I don't want it to be drug on forever. I think it's time for them to start thinking about how this whole thing is going to end.

    AH hell no!! If he leaves I will not forgive him. I swear I love that show and it wouldn't be right at all. I can't believe he'd even consider up and walking away!!!!

    A wise old actor once said: "DON'T LEAVE A HIT SHOW!" Also, please don't put a lot of other talented people out of work. Leave when the story is over. That's the right thing to do. There is always time for broadway. Or whatever else he wants to do. Can't imagine it being tough to get a job after Dexter.
