Recently (August 2007), he played the fallen angel Azazel in ABC Family's 6 part mini-series Fallen. He is introduced to the mini-series in the second episode and appears in all subsequent installments until his character is returned to the chains that he was originally imprisoned in.


On December 30, 2007 Poets and Pornstars posted a blog and a bulletin from the band's myspace announcing the departure of Hal from the band. In a letter to the fans Hal wrote:

"Dearest and most beloved Sex Ninjas"

"What an unbelievably nut-busting ride we have had together these last 5 years."

"Some of you are old school badasses who sweated it through the Sunset Strip with me. You've seen a dozen manager changes, all sorts of ups and downs and two and a half different line-ups. You've seen opening slots at The Mint turn into residences at The Viper Room, become headlining slots at The Roxy turn into arenas, stadiums and national tours."

"Against all obstacles we have partied, brawled, sweated our way together into a national release and become a wayward and nefarious crime syndicate of hard-rocking wonder."

"I will always be proud of what Poets and its Sex Ninjas have done together. Few bands ever get half as far, and never with as much support."

"Alas, recently certain things in my personal life have made it harder and harder to keep the Poets train rolling. [In addition] as most of you know, I am also a filmmaker and an actor. This has never gotten in the way of Poets. It's often helped, with getting songs on soundtracks and other bits and bobs. And not least of all as a way of keeping enough cash on hand to feed my music habit. However, a few weeks ago [I was faced with the choice between] going out on the road for the next couple years and pursuing my other art forms. "

"Between this choice and the other complications hereto mentioned, it is with great sadness then that I have to announce [my departure from] Poets and Pornstars. "

"Dave, Sally, Randy and Domo will be looking for a new singer...and they do this with my FULL blessing. They are kick-ass people and I am honored to have rocked the country from coast to coast with them."

"Once again, you guys are the dog's proverbial bollocks and I can't thank you enough for all the love and support you've shown me, and us. We will always have the music, and we will always have the hot, sweaty nights of delirium and magic..."

Poets and Pornstars are now auditioning for a new lead singer.
