Bio

Robert Morse is an American actor and singer best known for his appearances in musicals and plays on Broadway and for his role as the somewhat eccentric senior partner at Sterling Cooper, Bertram "Bert" Cooper, in the television drama series Mad Men.

One of the few actors to have won Tony Awards for both Best Actor in a Play and Best Actor in a Musical, Robert Morse's career has spanned more than six decades and includes notable roles in television and film projects in addition to his stage work.

Morse's musical award came in 1962 with his unforgettable performance as J. Pierrepont Finch in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Frank Loesser/Abe Burrows/Bob Fosse musical of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

The dramatic nod came in 1990 with his triumphant portrayal of Truman Capote in the tour de force, one-man show, American Playhouse: Tru. The PBS presentation of Tru later earned Morse a 1993 Emmy Award as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Special as well.

Morse made his film debut in 1956's The Proud and Profane. In addition to reprising his Tony-winning role in the 1967 film version of How to Succeed in Business, for director David Swift, Morse appeared as Walter Matthau's philandering buddy/advisor in the Gene Kelly-directed A Guide for the Married Man and in the cult favorite The Loved One.

On television, Morse appeared in a continuing role in the medical drama City of Angels, and in an Oliver Stone miniseries Wild Palms, among various memorable television guest appearances.
