Upcoming Eureka Episode To Be Directed By Joe Morton

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 14th, 2013 at 3:26 pm,

It’s awesome to see an actor take a professional interest in more than just being a character, and such is the case with Eureka’s Joe Morton.  Joe plays Henry Deacon on the show.

Joe has directed before – an episode of TriBeCa, when he was on that show and an independent film titled Sunday on the Rocks.

The upcoming episode of Eureka (9/11/09) involves a virus that causes an ice age sort of environment (and the return of Matt Frewer).

But you’d better keep a careful eye out – Morton knows the TV series has a certain feel to it, and understanding that, he tried to add a few directorial tweaks of his own to this episode.

It will be interesting to watch, for sure!  I like actor-directed episodes.  The actors know how the show should tick and it gives them a chance to spread their professional wings in a different direction.

BTW, did anyone catch the Eureka marathon on Syfy?  It was an awesome collection of fan favorites.  It filled in all the holes for me from episodes that I missed.  I never knew that Sheriff Carter had to go back in time and walk away from his relationship with Allison. That was depressing…

  1. He’ll always be “Miles Dyson” to me,,,,, :-)

  2. @ 790 I defibately agree, I actually thought he was one of the few things that really worked in that movie. Although the way that he’s handled the Eureka stuff is quite good, I find myself having accepted him as his character pretty much effortlessly, so I gotta believe that’s what good acting is.

  3. I finally finished season 1 this past weekend. Didn’t know Frewer was a regular, since I started watching during season 2. Morton is definately under-rated. He was great in Terminator 2 and Speed. I think this Friday will have 2 episodes to end the season; is that right?

  4. Morton was also good in his limited run on Smallville, too. A very good actor. Glad to see him sticking with Eureka. It’s slowly turning into one of my “MUST-SEE” shows. I’m going to have to watch all the earlier seasons to catch up.
