Brandon Micheal Hall has quickly established himself as a highly sought-after young actor. In 2017, Hall was named one of Variety’s “Top Ten Television Stars to Watch” for his breakout performance in the “The Mayor.” Starring in the title role of the show from executive producers Jeremy Bronson and Daveed Diggs, he also earned “one to watch” raves from Entertainment Weekly, The Los Angeles Times, People and IndieWire. In addition to GOD FRIENDED ME, he stars in the critically acclaimed series “Search Party,” which will return for a third season in 2020.
While still a student at Juilliard, Hall landed the lead on the CBS pilot “LFE,” opposite Melissa Leo. Since graduating, he has guest starred on the Comedy Central series “Broad City,” Netflix’s “The Characters,” opposite Paul Downs, and A&E’s “Unforgettable.” On stage, he starred in the world premiere production of “Transfers,” directed by Jackson Gay. Next, he will guest-star in the Starz! crime drama “Power,” in the series’ sixth and final season. Hall guest-stars alongside Cedric the Entertainer as a father/son duo.
On the feature film side, Hall recently starred in Automatik’s darkly funny horror film “Monster Party” and the independent film “Lez Bomb,” opposite Bruce Dern.
Hall trained at the Juilliard Drama Division, the British American Drama Academy and the South Carolina Governor School of the Arts and Humanities. In April he received the 2019 President’s Alumni Award from the Governor’s School. This honor is bestowed on an accomplished graduate who has shown a commitment to the arts and artistic achievement, while embodying the school’s key values.
Hall’s birthday is Feb. 3. Follow him on Twitter @hall_m_brandon and on Instagram @brandonmichealhall.
