Anthony Michael Hall
Anthony Michael Hall serves as Producer and stars as "Johnny Smith" in the USA Network original series The Dead Zone.
Having grown up in movies, Hall is loved for his starring roles in teen classics, such as "The Breakfast Club," "Sixteen Candles," "Weird Science" and "National Lampoon’s Vacation."
His characters have been varied over the years: living on the street in the critically acclaimed "Six Degrees of Separation;" brilliant Microsoft mogul Bill Gates in the five-time Emmy-nominated TNT original movie "The Pirates of Silicon Valley," with Noah Wyle playing rival Steve Jobs; an abusive bully in "Edward Scissorhands;" as well as a host of crazy characters during his two-year stint on "Saturday Night Live" where he was, and remains, the youngest cast member in the show's history.
Hall starred in HBO’s highly acclaimed Billy Crystal helmer "61*," in which he plays legendary lefty pitcher and Hall of Famer Whitey Ford opposite Barry Pepper and Thomas Jane. He was also seen in Universal/Jersey Films' "Caveman's Valentine" starring opposite Samuel L. Jackson and "Hysteria: The Def Lepard Story" for VH1. Hall also starred in the USA Network original movie "Hitched," directed by Wesley Strick ("The Saint" and "Cape Fear"). Most recently, Hall executive produced and starred in an independent feature film "Aftermath," with the late Chris Penn.
Hall is committed to aiding at-risk youth through his literacy program The Anthony Michael Hall Literacy Club, in association with Chapman University. The program provides tutoring and literacy sessions to youth at the nearby Orange High School and Cambridge Elementary.
Hall is currently developing film and television projects to produce, direct and star in under his production company banner AMH Entertainment.
