For some die-hard television viewers, it can be difficult to detach an actor from their most prominent role. Personally, I can’t help but think “Tony Soprano” when I see actor James Gandolfini as any other character. It’s like when he took on that role, he lost a bit of himself to Tony. Similarly, actor Joe Morton has been fading into his role as Rowan Pope on the hit T.V. series “Scandal.” On one hand, this speaks to his talent, for viewers find his acting believable and realistic. From another viewpoint, this can be a bit dangerous. Why? Because just like Gandolfini, there is much more to Morton than just this one character.
