    Default Michael C. Hall announces he has cancer

    Dexter Star Michael C. Hall: I Have Cancer
    Today 2:01 PM PST


    Randy Tepper/Showtime


    Dexter knows how to dispatch the bad guys. Let's hope he has the same success with this.

    Michael C. Hall has announced he's been diagnosed with a nonlethal form of cancer and is already on the mend.

    The 38-year-old Dexter star said he's suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma, but that the disease was caught at an early stage in a "treatable and curable condition." He's currently receiving treatment at an unidentified Los Angeles-area facility, Hall said, and the cancer is reportedly in complete remission.

    And he's definitely not letting it get in the way of a good time.

    Hall is expected to join his actress wife, Jennifer Carpenter, at this Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, where he's nominated for Best Actor for his titular role in Showtime's serial killer hit, as well as the Jan. 23 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

    The fifth season of Dexter is set to premiere in September.

    Oh no, poor Dexter! Glad it responded to treatment and is in remission. I love MCH.

    So maybe that's why the shaved head in the behind the scenes following this season's finale commentary with John Lithgow.

    Damn. Not Dexter. I've been a fan of Michael's since his days on Six Feet Under. Glad the cancer is in remission.

    I would say poor guy,but he is really a lucky guy! Caught early & curable. Good for him for announcing it -he could save a life.

    I like him, but the cynic in me thinks the timing for announcing is . . . interesting. The Golden Globes are Sunday and he's nominated.

    But aren't the ballots already in?

    I saw it more as a way to prevent awkward "why did you cut your hair " questions.

    Maybe so on both. I really do like him and wish him the best, the timing just felt a little strange.

    *sigh* I've turned into a cynical bitch where all celebs are involved, I guess.

    I relate to being a cynical bitch. But he apparently made the announcement on the day the ballots had to be in so voting was pretty much over. HFPA - 67th Awards Timetable

    LOVE Michael & hope all goes well for him.

    My first thought was WHY announce it now too...

    I wonder if there is something a bit more sinister going on. Perhaps The Enquirer had something on him---like an affair/drugs/bad stuff. Ted Casablanca (I know) has hinted at issues going on w/Michael, and he didn't make it seem like it was health related. BUT, who knows.

    I like him too. Be well Mike!

    I was so sad to hear this yesterday and truly hope that he is doing better. Maybe he announced it before it hit the tabloids.
