Michael C. Hall treated for cancer

'Dexter' star's Hodgkin's lymphoma is in remission

"Dexter" star Michael C. Hall said he was diagnosed with cancer and is on the road to the successful completion of treatment.

Hall said Wednesday that he was fortunate to be diagnosed with a "treatable and curable condition," Hodgkin's lymphoma, and thanked his doctors and nurses for their expertise. The name of the Los Angeles area health facility where he has undergone treatment was not released.

Craig Bankey, a spokesman for the actor, said the disease is in complete remission and Hall's treatment will continue as planned.

Hall plans to attend Sunday's Golden Globe Awards with his wife, actress Jennifer Carpenter, and the upcoming Screen Actors Guild ceremony. He's a nominee at both awards shows for his role as a serial killer in Showtime's "Dexter."

Bankey said Hall will return to production on the drama's fifth season this year.
