During his college years, he met Jay Fenichel with whom he would later make musical productions. Upon graduation, Fenichel moved to Los Angeles and Hall moved to Venezuela to play basketball. After a year, he lost interest and relocated to LA. Together, they put together two night club acts/musicals. One was a semi-autobiographical two-man musical, In Five, and the other was a two-man show called The Worst Of Friends, both of which played in night clubs throughout the LA area. They also had a promotional business where they did promotional acts in department stores for new products throughtout the LA area. While working on the set of the series 227(1985), he met his co-star, Alaina Reed Hall who he married both on the set, and in real life, and they had two children. He was most famous for being the most unrecognised recognised actor when he played the Predator opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger and as the lovable Bigfoot Harry in Harry and the Hendersons (1987). He continued the role of Harry on the TV series of the same name . Sadly he passed away from complications due to the AIDS virus contracted through a blood transfusion a few months before production on Predator 2 had begun.
