David Harbour joins WB’s “Black Mass” as corrupt FBI agent John Morris




Tony nominated actor David Harbour has joined the cast of WB’s “Untitled Whitey Bulger” film (also known as “Black Mass”) starring Johnny Depp. Harbour will play corrupt FBI agent John Morris who with fellow FBI agent John Connolly allowed Whitey to evade law enforcement and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history. Scott Cooper is directing, currently in production in Boston. The film is set for release September 18th, 2015.

Habour will also be seen recurring in WGN’s new anticipated series “Manhattan” currently shooting in New Mexico, as rival scientist ““Reed Akley”. The series will debut Sunday, July 27th at 9PM EST on WGN America. The series is created and written by Sam Shaw (“Masters of Sex”) and directed by Emmy Award-winning director Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing”). It will continue its 13-episode run on WGN America, Sundays at its regular time, 10PM EST. Set against the backdrop of the greatest race against time in the history of science — the mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb — “Manhattan” follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families in Los Alamos as they attempt to coexist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.

This fall, Habour will be seen in two highly anticipated films – “Walk Among Tombstones” opposite Liam Neeson out September 19th, and Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer” opposite Denzel Washington out September 26th.
