The Crown Adds Michael C. Hall as JFK

Michael C. Hall’s is returning to TV as another killer — a lady killer.

The Dexter star has joined Season 2 of Netflix’s Golden Globe-winning drama The Crown, where he’ll portray John F. Kennedy, Deadline reports. In addition, Quarry‘s Jodi Balfour has signed on to play Jackie Kennedy.

Hall’s JFK is described as a man who feels most comfortable in front of a crowd — but isn’t keen on his wife stealing any of the limelight. As revenge, he publicly flaunts his infidelities to ensure she doesn’t upstage his popularity.

The Crown is not Hall’s first TV credit since Dexter wrapped in 2013. He has lent his voice to several animated series, including Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles and Star vs. the Forces of Evil.

Does The Crown seem like the perfect post-Dexter gig for Michael C. Hall?

    I’m a fan of Michael C. Hall , and I enjoy the Crown alot but I find this casting Highly Questionable. However, this is the show that made John Lithgow somehow work as Winston Churchill so I will give Hall a chance as JFK, but it does feel like an awfully strange casting choice at first glance.

      Wait, seriously? John Lithgow was born to play Winston Churchill. That was like the biggest casting “duh” of last year.

      • Chris says:

        Right that made perfect sense to me too, hall will kill it just like he always does because he is extremely talened.

        John Lithgow was the standout of the entire series as Churchill. I have no doubt that Michael C. Hall will be just as great as JFK.

    Wait, does this mean both Dexter and The Trinity Killer will be on a TV series together again? I may have to watch that.
