Perry is not the first person one would expect to play the comedic role of Murphy Brown, but don’t let that fool you. Perry has been performing for 20 years and is not new to the Broadway scene, only new to portraying Murphy Brown.
Perry’s experience in theatre should allow him to play this role with ease while still remaining true to his own personality and background. The Dark’s executive producer, Nicky Weinstock explains that they saw many auditions, went about looking all over for a blind actor.
