An endearingly impish and multi-talented performer on stage, television and in films since the 1950s, Robert Morse was the Emmy- and Tony-winning powerhouse who defined self-confidence in "How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" (1967) and earned kudos for turns as Truman Capote in "Tru" and as Bertram Cooper on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007- ). Morse's boundless energy and charm were his key strengths, but also a stumbling block for producers who frequently cast him in quirky roles rather than plucky her s like his "How to Succeed" character. Television and stage became his best venues for nearly four decades, culminating in a Tony win for "Tru" and multiple Emmy nominations for "Mad Men," where he appeared to play a worldly, wiser version of his most famous musical role. His body of work made him a favorite among theater habitu├ęs and drama enthusiasts well into his eighth decade.
