I enjoyed the ditzy, comedic role that I played alongside several 'big name' stars

'The Deal' (Directed by Steven Schacter, with the screenplay written by Schacter and William H. Macy) is an adaptation of Peter Lefcourt's 1990 novel of the same title. The story focuses on the lead character Charlie Berns (William H. Macy), and his desperate attempt to comeback from the lowest point of his life and career.

"The original story's twists, quirky characters, and unexpected transitions translate well on the big screen," said Morris. "I enjoyed the ditzy, comedic role that I played alongside several 'big name' stars," said Morris. Morris portrays the role of 'Catherine', a hurriedly assigned, unconfident, 'bottom of the barrel', temp' secretary to the character, Charlie Berns. Usually cast in glamorous roles, Tere Morris stated that she welcomed the opportunity to exhibit her acting ability by playing a contrasting character in the film. Almost true to her character in the film, Morris was visiting the restroom as William H. Macy attempted to congratulate her for her acting performance after the Sundance® screening for 'The Deal'.

In addition to William H. Macy, Meg Ryan stars as 'Deidre', a savvy and tenacious studio executive. Other notable actors in the film include Elliott Gould, Jason Ritter, L.L. Cool J and David Hunt. "Working with the entire cast of 'The Deal' was a fantastic experience," according to Morris. She added, "Director Steven Schacter brilliantly communicated the screenplay he co-wrote". 'The Deal' is currently in negotiations for domestic distribution.

Previous to 'The Deal', Tere Morris' most recent acting role was the dramatic character 'Miss Patty' in a post Vietnam story, titled 'Journey From The Fall'. The film enjoyed recognition as the official selection at Sundance® in 2006. Morris is currently in negotiations for acting roles in three new film productions, 'Wild Cherry', 'Jonah', and 'Three Sistahs'.
