That Guy: The Guy From Disturbia

Whether he is playing a good guy or a bad guy, this dude is always intimidating. At 6’4” this guy is often cast as a big or overbearing character and has the face to play nice guy or disturbed public menace. At age 57, he has had a long and awesome career where he has worked on such films as The Green Mile, The Rock, The Hurt Locker, and The Negotiator. It may seem that he will only work on movies that start with “The”, but that’s not the case with movies to his credit like The long Kiss Goodnight, The Good Son, The… wait, I’m backing myself into a corner here. Skip that. He has worked with some very well known and sought after talent that includes The Tom Hanks, The Bruce Willis, The Samuel L. Jackson, and The Kevin Spacey. Here’s the thing, you don’t know his name and you should be ashamed of yourself for it, but we here at 2dayhangover.com are here to help with many  of your many short comings, so we’ll let you in on it…

His name is David Morse. Now, never disappoint us again.

Morse began acting in 1971, performing in 30 productions by 1977. He appeared in his first film in 1980 in the film Inside Moves. Since then, he’s blazed on the screen as a rough and tumble older fella that you don’t want to get into a physical altercation with so you don’t have to explain how a 57 year old kicked your ass. His most famous role was arguably his best movie, The Green Mile. He wasn’t a lead man in that, but he was memorable as hell, as well as everyone else in that movie. It was just an amazing work in film. Who knew Stephen King had it in him (YES that was written by him). More recently he was in Disturbia (I KNEW there was a movie that didn’t start with “The”) and The Hurt Locker, another exceptional film which won 6 Oscars in 2010. You may have also seen him in season 3 of the FOX show House M.D.  With all of that to his credit, it’s really easy to see how you wouldn’t know his name. It’s easy because we know you are a big selfish prick! For now, ‘til at least the end of the day though, you will remember THAT GUY is David Morse.
