**NEW!** The couple got married on New Year’s Eve. Read all about their elopement in Big Sur.
UPDATE: Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have appeared together in public enough times now that there’s no question they’re a couple. As of November 2008, we’ve seen them:
OK, Page Six reported this more than a week ago, so pardon me for being slow on the uptake (I’ve been so busy catching up with Showtime shows On Demand that I haven’t been reading the gossip pages regularly).
Apparently, Michael C. Hall and his Dexter co-star Jennifer Carpenter have quietly been dating for months now! Page Six makes much of the pairing, since the two play adoptive siblings on the show. I’m a tad creeped out by that, but not as much as I am by Carpenter’s incredible shrinking body. Her skinny physique reminds me of a 12-year-old boy — not so sexy.
As for Hall, it must be a testament to his acting skill that I have trouble imagining him as anything but a-sexual. He was such a mess of repression and homoerotic energy as David on Six Feet Under and so good at convincing me on Dexter that he has no feelings, I just can’t wrap my head around this “dating my coworker” development. It’s kinda pedestrian, no?
Anyway, here’s the happy couple on a breakfast date. The Celebrity Skinny has more pics here.
