The 32-year-old actress opted for edge as she sauntered into the studio wearing a catsuit and mini skirt with a sweeping leather trench coat.
‘Just a casual morning look for you guys,’ she joked to Ryan Seacrest and guest co-host Ali Wentworth on Wednesday.

‘I love Elvis, I am from Memphis, Tennessee, I am proud of it, my family is all there,’ began the brunette beauty. ‘I named my dog after Elvis, I have Elvis tattooed on my body: it is in honor of my dog, who is named after Elvis.’
She then shared a personal story. ‘My grandma worked in the accounting building where Elvis’ business manager had an office and, according to her, Elvis kissed her on her cheek once… good for her.’

‘The show is different. It’s dark. There should be a disclaimer. It’s pretty disturbing, but I’m into that…I’m into the darker side of things.’
The synopsis for the series reads: ‘Detectives attempt to solve the murders of six people, whose bodies have been dismembered and sewn into the shape of one grotesque body – nicknamed the Ragdoll.’

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Hale said she had ‘to fight for’ her role as it was very ‘different’ from her resume of past projects.
‘If I’m being honest, I didn’t think I had a shot at it because this is really different for me. But I knew that I could do it. I had to fight for it. It’s just been such a nice challenge doing something super different.
‘I feel like I’ve been preparing my whole life for this role because I love true crime. ‘I’ve always wanted to be a part of a show like this because this is the genre I gravitate towards naturally..And this show is right on the money for what true crime people are into.’
