NAACP Image Award nominee Tracy Morgan plays wild and unpredictable movie star Tracy Jordan in NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning "30 Rock," a workplace comedy where the workplace exists behind the scenes of a live variety show. Morgan was nominated for an Emmy in 2009 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role.
As a stand-up comic who headlined across the country, Morgan was first introduced to TV audiences in his role as "Hustleman" on the hit comedy series "Martin." Morgan next joined "Saturday Night Live" in 1996 where he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellows. After leaving "Saturday Night Live," Morgan went on to star in his own comedy series "The Tracy Morgan Show." Morgan returned to "Saturday Night Live" in March 2009 for his first appearance as host. His other comedic achievements include his HBO special titled "Black & Blue" and continuing to be a fixture at the New York Comedy Festival. In addition to comedy, Morgan is also the author of "I Am the New Black," a compilation of studied anecdotes about some of the more serious moments that shaped him and his career.
Morgan's feature film credits include "The Longest Yard," "Little Man," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," "First Sunday," "Head of State," and "Death at a Funeral." He lent his voice to the Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films animated movie "G-Force," released in 2009, along with Nicolas Cage, Penelope Cruz, Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi. He most recently appeared in a dramatic role in "The Son of No One" opposite Al Pacino and Channing Tatum. Morgan can next be seen in "Predisposed" alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo.
In addition to his four individual NAACP Image Award nominations, Morgan, along with the "30 Rock" cast, won a 2009 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
