The son of two NU alumni, Hall has made Chris Collins' squad

Among the esteemed alumni of Northwestern University is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won seven Emmy Awards and is best known for her role in Seinfeld, on Saturday Night Live, and her current HBO series Veep. Her husband, Brad Hall, also a former Wildcat, was an SNL member in the 1980s as well.

The talent, apparently, doesn't end there, as the couple's son, Charlie Hall, has joined the basketball team as a walk-on. Hall, who hails from Los Angeles, is a 6-foot-5, 205-pound forward who attended the same high school (Crossroads School) as former NBAers Baron Davis and Austin Croshere. He was an all-league selection and two-time All-CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) selection. He also played on Earl Watson Elite on the AAU circuit.

Even if Hall doesn't help the on-court product, he will certainly help boost the off-court atmosphere. His highlight tape, (filmed by his dad) is above.

Louis-Dreyfus, 54, studied theater at Northwestern before dropping out after receiving a professional acting job offer.
