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!
