Morshower to Speak on Going the Extra Mile


Actor/producer Glenn Morshower will present his motivational lecture, The Extra Mile, at Schreiner University on Thursday, Feb. 9. 

Appearing as the 2017 Weir and Nell Labatt Distinguished Lecturer, Morshower will talk about giving one’s best effort to achieve his or her goals. The lecture is free and open to the public, and starts at 7 p.m. in Ballroom Two of the Floyd and Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center. 

One of the busiest character actors in Hollywood, Morshower is a Dallas native who has appeared in more than 200 films and television shows in a career spanning four decades. His first appearance was in the 1975 feature film Drive-In. 

Audiences worldwide know Morshower for his seven-year run as Agent Aaron Pierce on the FOX hit series 24. He currently appears as Gen. Sam Lane on the CW series Supergirl, and as Warren Hobes, on the new Showtime original series I’m Dying Up Here. 

Morshower has played characters who have served two of television's most famous fictional Presidents--Jed Bartlet on The West Wing, and David Palmer on 24. In 2014, he produced and starred in his first independent feature film, Flutter. 

When he is not busy filming, he travels extensively as a motivational speaker. 

The Weir and Nell Labatt Distinguished Lecture Series was established by a generous gift from the late Nell Schreiner Labatt to bring motivational speakers to campus.
