He’s convinced you he’s a gay man in “Six Feet Under,”
that his wife is his sister in “Dexter”
and now his greatest performance yet — portraying a perfectly healthy Hollywood star while battling cancer.

Michael C. Hall, best known as our favorite fictional serial killer, Dexter, said on Wednesday that he has been
battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma but the treatment is almost finished and the disease is
in remission.

The 38-year-old actor said in a media statement that he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s, a treatable cancer of the lymphatic system, but did not say when the diagnosis was made.

“I feel fortunate to have been diagnosed with an imminently treatable and curable condition, and I thank my doctors and nurses for their expertise and care,” Hall said.

His spokesman Craig Bankey said in the statement reported by People
magazine that Hall’s cancer is in remission and the actor will continue
treatment as planned.

Hall plans to go with his wife and “Dexter”
co-star Jennifer Carpenter, who plays his sister in the series, to the Golden Globe awards being held in Los Angeles on Sunday where he’s nominated for best dramatic actor and the show as best drama.
