To begin with, while still a high school student, Robert Morse appeared as an actor in and director of school performances. As a professional actor he debuted in 1949 with the role of Gabey in the musical “On the Town”. Then he moved to New York City, and at first he worked his way through Manhattan as a salesman and lighting contractor. He then served four years in the US Navy.

Concerning his career in entertainment, Morse had his first small uncredited film role in the war melodrama “The Proud and Profane” (1956), but was then cast for the role of Barnaby Tucker in the Broadway comedy “The Matchmaker”, which character Robert played from 1955 to 1957 at the Booth Theatre in New York, and then also in the film of the same name directed by Joseph Anthony. From that time on, he was constantly on the stage or in front of the cameras. For his following Broadway role of Ted Snow in the musical “Say, Darling”, Morse was rewarded with a Theatre World Award, and received a Tony Award nomination the first time – his net worth was well established.

Afterwards, he starred in the musical “Take Me Along”, then from 1961, Morse took over the central role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical comedy “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”, which brought him his first Tony Award in the category of the Best Actor in a Musical. Also for his subsequent lead role in “Musical Sugar”, Morse won the Drama Desk Award and another Tony nomination. His last Broadway role was that of Truman Capote in “Tru”, for which he was won a Tony Award.

Moreover, Morse’s larger film roles include those of Ed Stander in the comedy “A Guide for Married Man” (1967), in which he plays alongside Walter Matthau. Robert and Doris Day took the main roles in “Where Were You As the Lights Went Out?” (1967), but then from the 1970s, Morse was mainly seen as a guest actor in various television series. In 1992, the Broadway play “Tru” was filmed for television in the context of the PBS series “American Playhouse”, and for the title role he won the Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Special.

At the age of 76, when Morse regarded his acting career as declining, he was offered the regularly recurring role of Bertram Cooper in the television series “Mad Men”, a decision from the series originator Matthew Weiner, From 2007 to 2015, he was one of the cast members of the series, and was nominated three times for an Emmy in the Outstanding Guest Actor category. In 2016, Morse played, among other things, the side role of the journalist Dominick Dunne in the first season of the series “American Crime Story”, which is about the criminal proceedings against OJ Simpson.

Finally, in the personal life of the actor, Morse was married to the dancer and actress Carole D’Andrea from 1960 to 1981; they have three daughters. In 1989, Morse married Elizabeth Roberts, with whom he has two more children.

1Short stature
2Gap between two front teeth
1Most actors have been fired during their career.
2I love to go into the studio on days when I'm not even doing anything. It's like my senior club. Some people go to senior centers, well I go to my senior center.
3My memorization skills aren't that great so I need help in that area. As far as everything else, I listen to the director. I'm someone who doesn't argue. I hit my marks and say the lines.
4I lead a simple life. I get residuals. I have a family; we're doing alright.
5I like the normal things of life: I like the Mets, and the Celtics, and the N.Y. Rangers. I like to watch C-Span; I love Costco.
6I think I'm pretty much down to earth, and I'm not really way, way out there.
7I think you always have to keep your eye open and take advantage of anything that may come your way.
8John Lithgow was absolutely wonderful in 'Dexter,' there's no doubt about it.
