Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Son Is A Walk-On For Northwestern Basketball

New Northwestern basketball walk-on Charlie Hall is the son of a pair of Northwestern alums, one of whom you might have heard of. 

Hall's bio on the Northwestern Athletics site reads as follows: 

Personal: Born Charles Thompson Hall ... Son of Brad Hall and Julia Louis-Dreyfus ... Parents are both actors and Northwestern alums

That's right. Hall's mom is that Julia Louis-Dreyfus, better known as Elaine from Seinfeld. He's the youngest of Louis-Dreyfus' two children with husband Brad Hall. 

While Charlie's mom has the famous name, he himself has some game on the basketball court. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound guard averaged 15 points, 11 rebounds and five assists per game during his senior season at the Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences in Santa Monica, Calif. Counted among Crossroads' famous alums are former NBA players Baron Davis and Austin Croshere and actors Sean Astin, Jack Black, Jonah Hill, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Damon Wayans and Zooey Deschanel.
