Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s son walks on to Northwestern basketball team

Wednesday September 30th, 2015

The son of actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, star of shows such as Veep and Seinfeld, has walked on to the basketball team at Northwestern. 

Charlie Hall is a 6'5", 205-pound freshman who averaged over 15 points per game in his senior year of high school. You can tell the kid is a walk-on, because his description on the team website says nothing about him:

Personal: Born Charles Thompson Hall ... Son of Brad Hall and Julia Louis-Dreyfus ... Parents are both actors and Northwestern alums ... Mother is a seven-time Emmy Award winner who has starred in television shows such as Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine and Veep ... Attended same high school as former NBA players Baron Davis and Austin Croshere and actors Jack Black, Jonah Hill, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel. 

Poor kid will always have to live the shadow of his mom, who has made out with the dude who played Walter White, Jerry Seinfeld, the dude who "took it out," Keith Hernandez and of course, Puddy. One of these days the world will know Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Charlie Hall’s mom, we imagine he whispers to himself every night.
