Before His Emmy Win, Tony Hale Was A Local Theatre Star In Tallahassee


A typical Emmy acceptance speech usually consists of the winner checking off a laundry list of names. It was fitting then, that first-time winner Tony Hale rattled off his wife, daughter, mom and dad. Also on that list? Hale's childhood acting coaches. In the final seconds before being ushered off stage, Hale gave a big thank you to coaches Tina Williams and Alison Grimes, and to the Young Actors Theatre in Hale?s hometown of Tallahassee, Florida.
