On top of his work in TV Hall has starred in some feature films including Gamer (2009), with Gerard Butler, The Trouble with Bliss (2012) and Kill Your Darlings (2013).
He began performing on Broadway in 1999, where he was cast as Emcee in Cabaret, he then performed in Chicago as Billy Flynn which toured the US. Hall’s more recent theatre appearances include The Realistic Joneses at Lyceum Theatre in 2014 where Hall played John Jones. This performance won the Outstanding Ensemble Performance award at the Drama Desk Awards (2014). Furthermore he starred as the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch Hall in 2014 on Broadway until early 2015. In the same year he also played Thomas Newton in the sell-out Broadway production of Lazarus, where he had close interaction with David Bowie who co-created the production with Edna Walsh.
In October 2016 he will reprise his role in Lazarus when it transfers to a newly purpose built theatre in Kings Cross, London.
