The future of hit Showtime series ‘Dexter’ may be spoiled by a big fish.

The show’s number one killer, Michael C. Hall, has been offered a place on Broadway’s ‘Big Fish’ production as the male lead.

Producers for the adaptation of the Tim Burton film were hoping to cast actor Hugh Jackman for the lead, but due to his hectic film schedule he was unable to commit to the role. Producers Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks then turned to their next in line – Hall.

Hall isn’t unfamiliar with the stage. He has performed in productions of ‘Chicago’ and ‘Cabaret’ prior to his casting on the HBO series, ‘Six Feet Under.’

If he does take the role, ‘Dexter  may meet his end. You can’t have the show go on without it’s main character and namesake. The production of ‘Big Fish’ won’t be ready to go until next year but until then, fans of the serial killer will have to wait and see if mourning will be appropriate.
