Lamorne Morris Lands Next Role in Universal’s Danny Boyle Comedy
Lamorne Morris is starting to become a well-known name in comedy. If one has been following him since the early days of New Girl, then they will not hesitate to tell someone that it is about damn time. Morris has been acting for over ten years now and is barely starting to get the widespread love that he deserves. He has shined as Winston Bishop on New Girl for 145 episodes; it would be fair to say that his hard work should pay off. He was just also responsible for many of the hard laughs in Game Night. He is currently shooting Valley of the Boom, a miniseries for National Geographic and STX. Deadline has just revealed what his next project will be after this. It could possibly end up being one of the biggest films in his career thus far.
News broke last month that Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis were teaming up for a comedy at Universal. Boyle is an Oscar Winning director with titles under his belt such as Trainspotting, 127 Hours, and Slumdog Millionaire. He is currently also attached to direct the next James Bond film. Richard Curtis has plenty of popular screenplays under his credits; Love Actually, Bean, Bridget Jones’s Diary just to name a few. When you have a star-studded cast including the likes of Lily James, Himesh Patel, Ed Sheeran, and Kate McKinnon under the talents of Boyle and Curtis- it all looks too good to fail. The plot of the film is still being kept under wraps. The site only revealed that Morris’ character will be named Stephen.
This looks like it can shape to be a comedic hit. One can imagine how Morris’ comedic talents will blend with this cast and crew. It is amazing to see Morris take steps that do not confine him to television. This is not meant to diminish his work in television but it is always fantastic to see a person of color get more work for recognized talent. How excited are you to see Morris again on the big screen? Let us know either in the comments below or on social media and make sure to support Morris when this untitled film hits theaters on Sept. 13, 2019.
