'Dexter's' kin: Killing OK, kissing not so much

Michael C. Hall's asked how the folks back back home -- that would maybe be North Carolina, which is where IMDB.com says he grew up -- responded when they first heard about his role as serial killer Dexter Morgan in Showtime's "Dexter."

'Dexter's' kin: Killing OK, kissing not so much

Michael C. Hall's asked how the folks back back home -- that would maybe be North Carolina, which is where IMDB.com says he grew up -- responded when they first heard about his role as serial killer Dexter Morgan in Showtime's "Dexter."

"As long as you're not kissing a black man!" Hall drawled mockingly, in a reference to his "Six Feet Under" character David Fisher, a gay man in a relationship with a black police officer (played by Philadelphia's Mathew St. Patrick).

"I think my family was more comfortable with my simulating murder and vivisection than they were with a healthy relationship with a black man," he said, adding that they seemed "weirdly comfortable" with "Dexter."
