Dennis Hall Dies Cinematographer Dennis Hall died Thurs., Oct. 20, while shooting the new USA Network series, 'Common Law.' He was 54.

Hall was in New Orleans with the crew filming when he suffered a heart attack in his hotel. His roommate, a camera operator, called the paramedics. They were unable to revive Hall.

"He could walk into a room that was deathly quiet or filled with negative energy and immediately liven everything up," cinematographer John C. Flinn III, who took Hall with him as his assistant on the 1980s TV shows 'Magnum, P.I.' and 'Jake and the Fatman,' told the Hollywood Reporter. "He was a great first assistant, a great cameraman and a great cinematographer. I'm so proud of him."

Hall served as director of photography on 'Burn Notice,' 'Franklin & Bash,' 'The Cleaner,' and was a camera operator in the early 1990s on shows including, 'Beverly Hills, 90210' and 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.'

'Common Law' stars Michael Ealy and Warren Kole as two LA cops in the homicide unit who don't get along, so their captain sends them to couples therapy. In July, USA ordered 11 episodes of the hourlong buddy cop show.

Hall is survived by his wife, Julie, and son Noah.
