Michael C. Hall is returning to television, but this time as a much milder criminal than his usual serial killer in disguise on Showtime’s “Dexter.”

Hall, an Emmy nominee who has had a killer’s role for 13 years, will star in and help produce Stanley Kubrick’s new drama, “God Fearing Man.” The plot, based on real life events, will feature Hall as Canadian minister Herbert Wilson, “a complicated protagonist,” who becomes one of the most successful bank robbers of the 21st century.

It’s almost been a year since “Dexter’s” last of eight seasons, but the new miniseries has been a potential project in Entertainment One’s studio since August 2012, reports said. The studio’s executive vice president Michael Rosenberg, and said the studio had been looking for the right person to cast.

“We knew we had to secure a leading man with the immense talent and charisma needed to carry the project, and we were dedicated to putting in the diligent time and effort to find the perfect fit,” Rosenberg said.
