Marion H. "Pooch" Hall, Jr. is an American television and film actor, rapper, and model known for his role as Derwin Davis, the football player on the The CW/BET sitcom The Game and as Ricky in the 2011 film Jumping the Broom. He currently plays the character of Daryll Donovan in the Showtime drama Ray Donovan.

Hall started his career doing commercials and modeling. Hall landed his first acting role in the 2001 Lift. That same year, he appeared Blue Hill Avenue. In 2003, he served as co-host for The N reality series Girls v. Boys. In 2005, he portrayed Ty'ree in the miniseries Miracle's Boys. The following year, he won the role of Derwin Davis on The Game. He was featured as Chrisette Michele's love interest in her music video "What You Do".

During the 2009-2010 season, he had a recurring role as Ryan on the CBS sitcom Accidentally on Purpose, replacing Cory Hardrict (the husband of Tia Mowry, his co-star from The Game). In the interview of the Tom Joyner Morning show, Hall had to set the record straight of departing from the series The Game. He quoted, "My contract came up, I promise you. We negotiated and we couldn't come up with a number. So my team said we're going to send you out". Pooch Hall continued and said the Showtime series knew about his commitment to BET but it took so long to respond to his agents; however, he continued to move forward with his new projects. "I never did quit the show" Hall said, "When The Game got canceled, I was offered another job and I booked Ray Donovan the next day".

'Ray Donovan' airs Sunday nights at 9:00pm on Showtime.
