Dexter's Michael C. Hall will be the next star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, producers announced today. Hall's reign as Hedwig begins October 16 and runs through January 4; Andrew Rannells, who took over for Neil Patrick Harris at the end of August, will have his final performance October 12. (Tony winner Lena Hall continues in her role as Yitzhak.) Hall hasn't been seen singing and dancing much recently, but this isn't his first Broadway musical: He played the emcee in Cabaret in 1999 and Billy Flynn in Chicago a few years later. No one is lined up after Hall just yet, so ... someone! Call Joseph Gordon-Levitt at once!
