Biography

Brad Hall appeared as a regular on "Saturday Night Live" from 1982-84, but instead of the feature film career that other former cast members attempted, Hall became a leading producer and writer of sitcoms, working on "Brooklyn Bridge" and his own "The Single Guy" as well as co-writing the screenplay for "Bye, Bye Love" with Gary David Goldberg. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA, Hall went to Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, famed for its theatre programming, and while in Chicago was one of the founding members of the Practical Theatre Company. Hall also appeared in the Goodman Theatre's productions of "Candide" and "Our Town" while based in Chicago. He moved on to New York where he appeared in David Mamet's "Prairie du Chien" at Lincoln Center before joining "Saturday Night Live." After "SNL" he moved to Hollywood, where he guest starred in episodes of "9 to 5" and "Mad Avenue." He also worked in small roles in feature films such as "Troll" (1986), and "Worth Winning" (1989) before his first substantial feature film role as Marty Callahan, Nancy Allen's endearing love interest in "Limit Up" (1989). But while awaiting acting roles, Hall's work writing revues for the Practical Theatre Company began to pay off. He was hired to "doctor" several feature films, punching up the comedy lines, and wrote an episode of "Frasier." He was hired as writer and story editor on the thoughtful Robert Urich comedy "American Dreamer" (NBC, 1990-91), which was executive produced by Goldberg and directed by Sam Weisman. Meshing with the duo, Hall collaborated with Goldberg on the pilot of "Brooklyn Bridge" (CBS, 1991-93), then went on to write numerous episodes, be supervising producer of the series, and also directed an episode. He collaborated with Goldberg on the script for "Bye, Bye Love," a 1995 feature film about divorced men and their angst directed by Weisman and in which Hall had a small role. He then returned to TV as executive producer of "The Single Guy," the NBC series starring Jonathan Silverman which premiered in the autumn of 1995. Hall is married to Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, his former cast mate on "Saturday Night Live" better known for her work on "Seinfeld."
