Joe Morton is a son of Joseph Thomas Morton, Sr., a US Army intelligence officer, and Evelyn, a secretary. Due to the nature of his father’s work, Joe frequently moved with his family, so he lived in West Germany and on Okinawa Island, Japan among other locations. He returned to New York where he went to Andrew Jackson High School, and then graduated from Hofstra University with a degree in drama.

Morton started playing in local theatres, and later made it to Broadway, appearing in such plays as “Hair”, “Salvation”, and “Raisin”. He debuted on-screen in an episode of “Bracken’s World” in 1970, and then continued to get minor roles before he appeared in ten episodes of “Grady” from 1975 to 1976. In 1977, Morton played in his first featured movie called “Between the Lines”, with John Heard, Lindsay Crouse, and Jeff Goldblum. In 1979, Joe had a role in Norman Jewison’s Oscar-nominated thriller “…and justice for all.” starring Al Pacino, Jack Warden, and John Forsythe. His net worth was moving.

Morton played in more than 15 movies in the ‘80s, including his starring role in “The Brother from Another Planet” (1984), “Trouble in Mind” (1985) alongside Kris Kristofferson, Keith Carradine and Lori Singer, and “Crossroads” (1986) with Ralph Macchio, Joe Seneca, and Jami Gertz. He ended the decade with Leonard Nimoy’s “The Good Mother” (1988) starring Diane Keaton, Liam Neeson, and Jason Robards, and “Tap” (1989) with Gregory Hines, Suzzanne Douglas, and Sammy Davis Jr.

Also in 1991, Joe appeared in “City of Hope” alongside Vincent Spano, and then he had roles in “Of Mice and Men” (1992) with Gary Sinise and John Malkovich, and in “Forever Young” (1992) starring Mel Gibson, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Elijah Wood. In 1994, Morton had a part in Jan de Bont’s Oscar-winning action movie “Speed” alongside Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, and Sandra Bullock; this movie hit the box office with earnings of $350 million, and additionally improved Morton’s wealth. In 1996, Joe played in “Executive Decision” with Kurt Russell, Halle Berry, and Steven Seagal, and in John Sayles’ Oscar-nominated “Lone Star” starring Chris Cooper, Elizabeth Peña, Matthew McConaughey, and Kris Kristofferson. He ended the ‘90s with roles in Golden Globe Award-winning “Miss Evers’ Boys” (1997) with Alfre Woodard and Laurence Fishburne, and in “The Astronaut’s Wife” (1999) alongside Charlize Theron and Johnny Depp. His net worth was rising sreadily.

In the early 2000s, Morton appeared in “Bounce” (2000) starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow, and in Michael Mann’s Oscar-nominated biography “Ali” (2001) with Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, and Jon Voight. Joe continued with parts in “Dragonfly” starring Kevin Costner and in John Woo’s “Paycheck” (2003) with Ben Affleck, Aaron Eckhart, Uma Thurman, and Paul Giamatti. From 2006 to 2012, Morton played Henry Deacon in 76 episodes of the TV series “Eureka”, while in 2007 he appeared in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-nominated “American Gangster” starring Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe and Chiwetel Ejiofor – the film earned over $260 million worldwide. From 2009 to 2011, Morton played Daniel Golden in 11 episodes of Golden Globe Award-winning series “The Good Wife”.

Since 2013, Morton is playing in the ABC’s series called “Scandal”, and most recently he appeared in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (2016) with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, and Golden Globe Award-nominated TV movie “All the Way” (2016) starring Bryan Cranston.
