From the deep archives: Joe Morton

May 23, 2016

I don’t watch much television so I have missed Joe Morton’s elevation to the status of television star (apparently he’s best-known for Scandal), but I’m delighted to see that this fine actor is back in the theater news with his show Turn Me Loose, in which he plays the sly fiery politically minded comedian and commentator Dick Gregory. Reading the favorable reviews inspired me to post my interview with Morton from my 1986 book Caught in the Act: New York Actors Face to Face along with his portrait by photographer Susan Shacter, one of my favorites in the book.
