The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Emmy Award Winner Joe Morton of ABC’s Scandal:
Joe has over 40 years of experience in theatre, television and film and has become a dominating presence on Shonda Rhimes’ groundbreaking series. Often referred to as the ‘Monologue King,’ Morton’s dialogue has been communicated almost exclusively in eloquent intervals delivering poignant speeches that are both singular and blistering, whilst addressing class, race and privilege; topics that are rarely covered in primetime television. As a central and lethal focal point throughout the series, critics and audiences alike came to understand that “Rowan” is the seemingly evil mastermind behind nearly all of the nefarious events that have unfolded.
2016 has been Joe’s busiest year! Morton recently made an appearance in Zack Snyder’s BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE playing the role of ‘Dr. Silas Stone’ of S.T.A.R. Labs, the father of ‘Victor Stone,’ the metahuman better known as Cyborg, who is set to appear in countless films slated for release over the course of the next four years. Morton also portrayed the role of NAACP leader Roy Wilkins alongside Bryan Cranston in the critically-acclaimed HBO Lyndon B. Johnson biopic ALL THE WAY, adapted from the Tony-winning Robert Schenkkan play, directed by Jay Roach and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Last but not least, Morton returned to his theater roots as he portrays the groundbreaking comedian Dick Gregory in the one-man show TURN ME LOOSE at The Westside Theatre in New York City, receiving rave reviews.
