SIDEWALKS host Lori Rosales talks to the actor about his stage work and starring as “Big Foster” Farrell VI in WGN America’s “Outsiders.”
Editor’s Note: Around two weeks after this interview was conducted, WGN America, surprisingly, cancelled the “Outsiders.” The producers of the program, Sony Pictures Television, has been looking for a new home for the series. On May 2, 2017, executive producer Peter Tolan made the announcement that the program is officially cancelled, as the actors’ contracts have expired and no new home was found.
Born October 11, 1953, in Beverly, Massachusetts, David Morse has been working practically non-stop in the TV, film and/or stage. His first major exposure to a mass audience was the landmark TV show, NBC’s “St. Elsewhere,” playing Dr. Jack “Boomer” Morrison. On TV, he had a recurring role as Detective Michael Tritter on FOX’s “House,” portrayed George Washington in the HBO miniseries “John Adams,” played Terry Colson in HBO’s ”Treme,” seen as Eliot Bezzerides in HBO’s “True Detective,” and was Mike Olshansky on CBS’ “Hack.” In films, Morse has been in “The Negotiator,” “Contact,” “The Green Mile,” “Disturbia,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” “The Rock,” “Double Vision,” “World War Z,” “The Boy,” “The Hurt Locker,” and “12 Monkeys.” Some of his stage work include James “Sharky” Harkin in “The Seafarer” and Uncle Peck on the Off-Broadway play “How I Learned to Drive,” where he earned a Drama Desk Award and Obie Award.
