Joe Morton will star as Colin Powell in David Hare’s new political play Stuff Happens set to open at London’s National Theatre on September 16th according to Playbill Online.
Morton has appeared on stage in Brutal Imagination Off-Broadway, Measure For Measure in Central Park and in the films Brother From Another Planet and Terminator 2.
About the war in Iraq, the title, Stuff Happens, comes from a phrase in a Donald Rumsfeld/Dick Cheney letter to President Clinton in 1998 which urged America to adopt a new global strategy that should include the removal of Saddam Hussein’s regime.
Joining Morton will be Alex Jennings as George W. Bush, Nicholas Farrell as Tony Blair, and Adjoa Andoh as Condoleeza Rice.
