COP OUT

TRACY MORGAN (Paul) can be seen this spring in director Neil LaBute's comedy "Death at a Funeral,” a remake of the 2007 British movie of the same name, alongside Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence, and later this year will appear in David O. Russell's romantic comedy "Nailed,” opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel. This past summer, Morgan made his animation debut lending his voice to Jerry Bruckheimer's "G-Force,” a combination live action/CG film that opened number one at the U.S. box office and was adored by audiences worldwide.

"Cop Out” marks Morgan's second feature with director Kevin Smith, having previously appeared in Smith's "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.” Morgan's other feature film credits include the ensemble action comedy "Superhero Movie”; "First Sunday,” opposite Ice Cube and Katt Williams; Peter Segal's "The Longest Yard,” starring Adam Sandler; the Wayans brothers' "Little Man”; and Chris Rock's "Head of State.”

Morgan can currently be seen starring on NBC's Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series "30 Rock,” opposite Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. As Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable star of a hit variety show, Morgan's performance recently earned him his first Emmy Award nomination in the Supporting Actor category, and he has twice been nominated for the NAACP Image Award for his work in the role. Along with the cast, Morgan also won a 2009 Screen Actors Guild Award® for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

A stand-up comic who has headlined across the country, Morgan was first introduced to television audiences in the role of Hustleman on the hit comedy series "Martin.” In 1996, he joined "Saturday Night Live,” on which he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellows. After leaving "SNL,” Morgan went on to star in his own comedy series, "The Tracy Morgan Show,” and as the voice of "Spoonie Luv” on Comedy Central's "Crank Yankers.” In 2009, he was tapped to be part of the famed "New York Comedy Festival” alongside comics Bill Maher, Andy Samberg and Patton Oswalt, among others. For the occasion, Morgan performed his live stand-up show, "Tracy Morgan's Hard Knock Life,” at Carnegie Hall. In addition, Morgan recently released his first book, I Am the New Black.
