You’ll be seeing the actress a lot during Northwestern’s NCAA tournament run.
If you’ve seen a Northwestern basketball game this season, chances are the broadcast has zoomed on Seinfeld and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She has become a regular at Northwestern games during its run to the program’s first ever NCAA tournament bid.
When the Wildcats hit that touchdown pass game winner, Louis-Dreyfus was there. It’s all because her son Charlie Hall is on the team.
Hall is a sophomore walk-on at Northwestern. While he doesn’t get much time on the court, Louis-Dreyfus is there to cheer her son on regardless.

Both Louis-Dreyfus and her husband Brad Hall are Northwestern grads.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Hall doesn’t get recognized much for being Louis-Dreyfus’ son but that doesn’t mean he lacks the comedic chops. Northwestern gave him a microphone after a game to interview his teammates and he’s almost as charismatic as his mom. He has the timing down.

Let’s hope that Northwestern pulls off another big-time play to win a game so either Hall or Louis-Dreyfus can celebrate with an Elaine Benes dance.
