David Morse Actor

David Morse began his acting career in the theater as a player for the Boston Repertory Theatre in the early 1970s. The production went on and toured to the Trinity Square Repertory Company with Providence. He spent some time in New York’s theater community in the early 1980s, before moving into television and film. During that time, he was listed as one of the twelve most “Promising New Actors of 1980” in John A. Willis’s Screen World, Vol. 32. His big break came in 1982 when he was cast in the television medical drama St. Elsewhere.

He played Dr. Jack “Boomer” Morrison, a young physician who is forced to deal with the death of his wife and the struggles of a single parent professional. In the mid-1970s, Esquire Jauchem, artistic director of the Boston Repertory Theater, adapted and directed a stage musical version of The Point! that starred 18-year-old David Morse as Oblio. He appeared in a number of supporting roles following the finale of St. Elsewhere in 1988. In 2002, Morse starred as Mike Olshansky, an ex-Philadelphia police officer turned cab driver, in the television film Hack.

He played a role in the 2002 crime-drama film Shuang Tong, he was nominated as Best Supporting Actor in the Golden Horse Awards, the first ever nomination for an English-speaking actor. In 2006, he received a phone call from David Shore, having previously worked with him on the Hack series, who asked him if he would be interested in having a guest role on House. He commented: “The first thing that comes to mind is my nose; it was my big idea to do that nose.

We didn’t have a lot of time, because they asked me to do this about three weeks before they started shooting, and I just kept looking at these portraits and thinking ‘this man’s face is so commanding’. And I did not feel that my face was very commanding in the way his was. So I convinced them that we should try the nose, and we tried it on, and everybody went ‘wow, that’s Washington’.” Morse’s portrayal earned him his second Emmy Award nomination. He stated that out of all of the films he has done, his favorites are The Green Mile, The Crossing Guard, and The Indian Runner.

In 2006, he had a recurring role as Detective Michael Tritter on the medical drama series of House, for which he received an Emmy Award nomination. He portrayed George Washington in the 2008 HBO miniseries and John Adams, which garnered him a second Emmy nomination. He has also received acclaim for his portrayal of Uncle Peck on the Off-Broadway play How I Learned to Drive, for which he earned a Drama Desk Award and Obie Award. He had also a success on Broadway, portraying James “Sharky” Harkin in The Seafarer. From 2010 to 2013, he portrayed Terry Colson, an honest police officer in a corrupt New Orleans police department, on the HBO series Treme. He also appeared in the WGN America series Outsiders (2016–17).

In addition to his film and television career, he has continued to appear on stage several times. During his performance in the 1997 Off-Broadway production of Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama of How I Learned to Drive, he received an Obie Award, a Drama League Award, a Drama Desk Award, and a Lucille Lortel Award.
