Michael C. Hall was on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” this Monday to talk about his latest Broadway play – “Hedwig And The Angry Inch”. The former “Dexter” star revealed how Neil Patrick and Andrew Rannells helped him prepare for the role of Hedwig. Watch the video below.
Via lonny.com: If “match the powder room to its celebrity owner” were a game (and it should be), we’d easily pair Michael C. Hall with his guest bath: a crisp, enigmatic retreat with black subway tile and an anatomical light fixture grasping a bulb in its palm. More about Michael C. Hall’s Spanish-style renovation and photos below.
“I can’t deny the resonance of disembodied hands,” jokes Hall, best known for his roles as a sympathetic killer in Dexter and a mortician in Six Feet Under. It was this “pocket of rock and roll in the midst of a grand and austere main floor,” in Hall’s words, that helped sell him on his 1920s Spanish-style abode in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, as well as on the mastermind behind its aesthetic— Kishani Perera, L.A.- based interior designer and owner of home decor store Rummage.
“That little space has tons of personality,” Perera says of the room. “When the developer who originally hired me was selling the house, he told me some people thought it was too weird. But I knew the right person would love it—and he did.” Loved it so much, in fact, that Hall hired Perera when he moved into the two-level, 4,000-square-foot residence.
In terms of decor, Hall was hardly starting from scratch; his impressive collection of statement pieces ranged from a stunning silver-and-gold herringbone-patterned console he discovered at the Rose Bowl flea market to a Vivian Maier print. “He has the most amazing objects ever—the coolest tchotchkes of any client,” Perera says. The mission, then, was to incorporate his existing possessions with new ones in a cohesive way that honored his self-proclaimed “sense of symmetry and earthiness.”
Architect Bobby Rees’s remodel resulted in a 20-foot-high entryway with sight lines reaching all the way to the top of the second floor. “I thought, ‘We have to do something cool and dramatic here,’” says Perera, who hung an Arteriors chandelier composed of vintage glass bottles to draw attention to the altitude without blocking the light.
In the living room, Perera paired a leather chair from the 1800s with a piano stool in a corner to “create a moment away from the rest of the seating.” The tête-à-tête arrangement also makes the room more inviting. “It seems very formulaic when you just have a sofa and chairs,” she says. “I like to have multiple seating areas—so you have a lot of things to look at.”
The barn door separating the living and dining areas is a must-have of the moment. But the monumental rustic touch doesn’t work just anywhere: “You can’t force it,” says Perera, who recommends a wide and tall opening (in this case, about nine feet high by eight feet wide), as well as a room that works when either open or closed. For Hall’s home, she installed a reproduction made from alder wood with custom fabricated iron brackets and a track.
“I like to incorporate things that don’t belong,” says Perera. She and Hall moved one of his prized pieces, a citrus-hued midcentury bench from West Hollywood design boutique Orange, into his otherwise sleek, grayed-out kitchen to make the space pop. Perera also recommends a table lamp on a kitchen counter: “I put drip-glaze lamps everywhere because they warm up a space so quickly and work in modern or traditional decor,” she says.

Michael C. Hall is returning to the small screen! Nearly a year after the Emmy nominee wrapped Showtime’s Dexter after an eight-season run, Hall is set to star in Stanley Kubrick’s unproduced miniseries drama “God Fearing Man”, according to THR.
God Fearing Man tells the true story of Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson, who went on to become one of the best safecrackers and most successful American bank robbers in the early 20th century.
Michael C. Hall will star as Wilson and executive produce the drama, which was first put into development as a potential series at independent studio Entertainment One in August 2012. The project will be produced as a miniseries, with eOne shopping it to networks.
“Kubrick’s God Fearing Man presents a larger-than-life story with a complicated protagonist who undergoes a radical transformation. We knew we had to secure a leading man with the immense talent and charisma needed to carry the project, and we were dedicated to putting in the diligent time and effort to find the perfect fit,” said Rosenberg, eOne Television’s exec vp U.S. scripted television. “We cannot be more pleased to have Michael on board, who has time and again demonstrated an uncanny ability to portray captivating characters who must grapple with fundamental internal struggles.”
