Jeff Lindsay spoke on “Cityscape” about Dexter’s final book, “Dexter Is Dead”, and about his experience as the author of its murderous but oddly beloved main character. While Lindsay consulted for a while on the first season of Showtime’s spinoff (and snagged a brief role in the third), the “Dexter” TV show went its own way from the books before too long. The divergent plots didn’t bother Lindsay, who says he was luckier than other authors he knows whose work has made it to the screen. “The adaptation they did was very faithful in spirit, and very well done. So I got no complaints at all about Showtime.”
After seven best-selling books about Miami-based serial killer Dexter Morgan, Lindsay is back to say goodbye to his beloved anti-hero. In his latest in the series, “Dexter is Dead”, Jeff Lindsay gives Dexter an ending worthy of his iconic status. New Times spoke with Lindsay about his latest book in a recent interview. Read it after the jump.
Is Dexter really dead?
Michael C. Hall is stepping into David Bowie’s old shoes in an off-Broadway musical. The New York Theatre Workshop said Tuesday that Hall will star in the musical “Lazarus” this winter by Bowie and “Once” playwright Enda Walsh.
Michael C. Hall will star in the indie drama “Christine”, based on a true story about a suicidal reporter, according to The Wrap. Antonio Campos is directing the film which chronicles the final months of a depressed news broadcaster who infamously committed suicide on live television in the 1970s.
Timothy Simons and Rebecca Hall also joined. Tracy Letts, J. Smith-Cameron (“Rectify”), Maria Dizzia (“Orange Is the New Black”) and Jayson Warner Smith (“Rectify”) co-star in “Christine,” which Campos will direct off a script by Craig Shilowich.
