Actor/helmer to star in multi-episode arc
HOLLYWOOD — Actor/director Vondie Curtis Hall, who most recently helmed Mariah Carey in her debut feature “Glitter,” will join the cast of NBC drama “ER” in a multi-episode arc next season.
Hall will star as Roger, a graphic designer and husband to recurring player Lisa Nicole Carson’s character. “ER” producers have not yet determined how many episodes will feature Hall, whose character gets caught up in a fierce child custody battle.
It’s not the first appearance in the emergency room for Hall: He guest starred as another character in an early episode of “ER” during the show’s first season and was also a series regular on CBS hospital drama “Chicago Hope.”
Besides jumping behind the camera for “Glitter” — due in theaters next month — Hall wrote and directed the 1997 film “Gridlock’d.”
Hall, who’s repped by the Gersh Agency and Artists Management Group, most recently appeared in the film “Turn It Up” and telepics “Ali: An American Hero” and “Freedom Song.” Other credits include Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo and Juliet,” John Woo’s “Broken Arrow” and Spike Lee’s “Crooklyn.”
Hall also appeared in “Eve’s Bayou,” which was written and directed by his wife, Kasi Lemmons.
