Captain Morgan Rum and Actress Tere Morris… the Perfect Cocktail

Share Article

Tere Morris was awarded a principal acting role in the latest creative commercial for Captain Morgan Rum. The commercial film sequences were shot at the “Dresden Room”, a historic Hollywood “hang-out”. The commercial is scheduled to be aired nationally and internationally.

The new Captain Morgan commercial was shot at the “Dresden Room” where the hit movie “Swingers” was filmed. While at the bar, patrons attempt to help fool a guy’s girlfriend who un-expectedly calls him on his cell phone. When the “boyfriend” pretends to be television channel surfing, the impromptu cover-up from the un-related, diverse group, develops. One by one the patrons take turns mimicking a different television show in an effort to “explain” the background noise. Tere pretends to be on a fitness show as the instructor and other customers yell out typical “feel the burn” comments. The comedy comes from the camaraderie between a group of strangers who band together to help a fellow Captain Morgan Rum drinker.

Tere’s diversely talented acting is demonstrated in the dramatic character she played in a post Vietnam story, titled “Journey from the Fall” 2005. The film is currently on a circuit run, and enjoys the official selection at Sundance. The sub-titled film was written and directed by Vietnamese born Ham Tran (An Old Photo Films). It is a perspective from the point of view of the American supporters left behind after the airlift at the end of the U.S. involvement. Tere Morris plays the part of “Miss Patty”. The film is a story of the hardships endured by a family and their ultimate emigration to America, where they re-unite.

Also a stage performer, Tere played the part “Lilith” opposite Ed Asner (as God) in ‘Yiddish She-Devils” 2005.

Jeremy Zall at Kolstein Talent Agency (N.Y and L.A) represented Tere Morris in securing a lead role in the Captain Morgan rum commercial.
