Rob Morgan is universally beloved by movie and TV fans alike. Thanks to charming turns in shows like Daredevil and This is Us as well as heartwrenching performances in films like Just Mercy and Mudbound, Morgan continues to create a legacy all his own. Up next, Morgan will join Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence in Vice director Adam McKay‘s latest project on Netflix.
The film, titled Don’t Look Up, follows two astronomers as they embark on a media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy Earth. McKay will write, produce, and direct the picture with Lawrence and Morgan taking on the co-starring roles. Moreover, Kevin Messick (Jack Reacher) is on-board to produce the film as well.
In a statement to Deadline, McKay expressed his excitement to collaborate with Morgan again.
“I had the pleasure of working with Rob Morgan on our HBO Lakers show and instantly knew he was someone I had to work with again,” McKay said. “Rob’s got a presence that’s both commanding as hell yet down to earth. Thrilled he agreed to do Don’t Look Up with us.”
Morgan is quickly becoming one of the busiest men in Hollywood. Following appearances alongside Tom Hanks in Greyhound and Issa Rae in The Photograph, Morgan will next star in Lee Daniels’ The United States vs. Billie Holiday. Additionally, Morgan will star in filmmaker Nora Fingscheidt’s next untitled project with Sandra Bullock. Furthermore, Jennifer Lawrence last appeared on the big screen in 2019’s X-Men film Dark Pheonix. Next, the award-winning actress will star in Red, White, and Water with The Eternals star Brian Tyree Henry.
Netflix continues its reign atop the streaming wars with the highest volume of award-winning content. Up next, the service is developing films like Leave The World Behind with Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts and a live-action Cowboy Bebop series.
