He went from one school to another so that he can find his passion in Henry Lasker, a drama teacher at Newton High School. “He knew what I had burning in me and wanted to express,” Mr. Morse flashed back to that specific time.
He moved to NYC to pursue his passion of becoming an actor, joining his elder brother Richard who was already studying acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse. He was able to earn an uncredited role in The Proud and Profane (1956), a film starring William Holden and Deborah Kerr.
Not long after playing his role in the best way, he was cast as Barnaby Tucker in the original Broadway production of Thornton Wilder‘s The Matchmaker, launching his career.

Details Due to Robert Morse’s Death
To respect his family’s privacy, no statement was released to clarify the cause after Robert Morse’s death announcement. No sign of health issues of a particular disease has been mentioned by a reliable source.
We learned the heartbreaking news from a tweet by Larry Karaszewski: “My good pal Bobby Morse has passed away at age 90. A huge talent and a beautiful spirit. Sending love to his son Charlie & daughter Allyn.”
He expressed this grief by writing: “Had so much fun hanging with Bobby over the years – filming People v OJ & hosting so many screenings (How To Succeed, Loved One, That’s Life)”
George Pennacchio tributed: “#BREAKING – Two-time Tony winner Robert Morse passed away today at 90, his son Charlie confirms. He won his Tonys for “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” & “Tru,” playing Truman Capote. TV audiences probably know him best from “Mad Men.” May he R.I.P.”
A fan commented: “I loved Morse so much. What a full life. I’m sorry. When I was a kid wanting to make movies, I always thought the best part would be to make friends with the creators you admire. You have done that, @Karaszewski. How wonderful! “The moon belongs to everyone…”
In an interview, the actor once shared: “It wasn’t just, ‘Go and sing a song and au revoir, Bobby.’ It was Bert telling Don [Jon Hamm’s character]: What are you doing? All this shit that you’re doing, cut it out. The best things in life are free. We just landed on the moon. Calm down. Enjoy things while you have them.”
Morse said Weiner always intended for him to sing on the show. The actor, though, had to be persuaded: “I saw how the scene fit into the whole picture and thought: ‘Wow. This gives things a lot of perspectives here. Let’s do it.’ We rehearsed for a few days and then just filmed it over the course of a day or so. No one else knew we were doing it.”
