Lamorne Morris Bio, Wife, Net Worth, Age, Height, Girlfriend and Parents 

Lamorne Morris may wear a few hats by reason of his career but it is clear that he enjoys being in front of the camera and would not want to be anywhere else. Morris is an African-American actor, comedian, and TV personality. However, he is most known for his role in the FOX sitcom, New Girl that started airing in 2011. He has also had times when he worked in other non-acting capacities. Most memorable of these are his collaborations with Cartoon Network and BET.

It is perhaps not a surprise that the increasingly popular Lamorne did not have acting on the top of his to-do list whenever he taught about his future. He initially wanted to be a basketball player, like many kids his age. As it turns out, time and providence had other plans.

Lamorne Morris’s Age and Bio

Morris was born on August 14, 1983, in a suburb near Chicago, in the state of Illinois, in a suburb known as Glen Ellyn. The comedian cum actor had his high school education here, at Glenbard South High School. After his high school days, Morris attended the College of DuPage from where he graduated in 2003. He also took courses at The Second City Training Center.

Morris’s talent came in contact with opportunity in 2006 and resulted in his first major gig. His wit and the air he had about him put him on BET’s radar. After he became one of the winners of BET’s “New Faces” search, the network made him a co-host of their new television show Hotwyred. He shared this responsibility with fellow “New Faces” search winner, Alesha Reneé. Hotwyred focused on tech, video gaming, and music news, replacing the show, BET.com COuntdown from July 10, 2006. It ran until May 25, 2007, and was effectively replaced by The 5ive.

Lamorne Harris has since then bolstered his reputation as a household name for the BET brand. His hilarious antics have seen him involved in many of the network’s on-air shows. They include 106 & Park, 106 & Party, 100 Countdown, Grammy Nomination Special, and most recently, as the co-anchor, along with Alesha Reneé, for the daily show BET Now.

Besides his long-standing on-screen relationship with BET, Morris also had a brief relationship with Cartoon Network in 2009. He was brought on as the host of a live-action game show titled BrainRush. It was short-lived, airing from June 20 to July 22 of 2009.

The actor, who is also a Chris Farley Memorial Acting Scholarship recipient, has been in several independent, award-winning film projects. He appeared in the indie movies, April Fools (Code Black), One Word. He also played a voice role in an animated comedy project, Urban Group Squirrels. In a bid to up his acting endeavours and build his career, Lamorne packed up and left New York for Los Angeles in 2008.

The actor’s business side became very obvious after he started appearing repeatedly in commercials. His advertisement portfolio has taken in gigs with brands such as State Farm Insurance, 7 Up, Microsoft Windows, Ford, McDonald’s, Chillis, Taco Bell, Twix, Sears, and more.

The actor has also used his penchant for comedy to push some noble causes on social media. He has appeared on videos for the YouTube channels, “FunnyorDie”, “Bart Baker” and “Water”. For the latter, he appeared with the “Martian” star, Matt Damon, in a video that aimed to raise awareness concerning the lack of clean water supply in developing countries.

However, Lamorne Morris’s biggest break yet came when he signed an agreement to play a supporting role in the popular FOX’s comedy series, New Girl. He was brought on as a character named Winston Bishop, who lives with two other men, and an eccentric female teacher, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in a Los Angeles loft. His work on the show earned him a Teen Choice Award for TV Breakout Star: Male in 2012. The show premiered on September 20, 2011, and has been renewed for more than six seasons.

Lamorne Morris and his girl friend, Erin LimHe has also been involved to varying degrees on films and tv shows both sides of his New Girl success. TV shows like Dear Secret Santa, The Assistants, and films like Barber Shop: The Next Cut, Sandy Wexler, and Game Night come to mind.

Lamorne Morris’s Parents, Wife, and Girlfriend

When it comes to family, Lamorne’s life while growing up is not perfect. His dad was absent most of the time. His mother, who was a postal worker, had to do most of the upbringing herself with occasional input from his grandmother.

In a 2017 interview with Larry King, on his Ora TV show, LarryKingNow, Morris opened up about his father. He talked about how his father was an absentee dad, a drug dealer and was always in and out of prison when he was growing up. However, he admits that although his father, who lives in Belize, has since cleaned up his act, he has not seen him in years.

And true to his humouristic self, he joked about the situation, tweeting a joke about it in 2014. However, it has been confirmed officially that the actor and comedian is dating Erin Lim.

Erin, was born on April 13, 1991. She graduated from Chapman University Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in May 2013. She is a correspondent and show host for E! News.
