NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Joe Morton's character in 'Scandal' is out of jail but what he does next remains a mystery until Thursday night. In real-life, the New York City native traveled with his military family a lot but returned from Germany to New York where he attended Hofstra University.
It was the first day of college that changed Morton's life forever.
"I went to college thinking I wanted to by a psychology major. They took us around the campus, took us to theater, showed us a skit and I couldn't get out of my seat. I thought maybe I could be an actor. I went to the registrar's office and changed all my classes from psychology to drama," said Morton.
