THE SON OF NO ONE

TRACY MORGAN is currently starring on NBC's Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning "30 Rock,” in which he appears opposite Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin as Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable star of Lemon's (Fey's) hit variety show, ‘TGS with Tracy Jordan.' In 2009, Morgan received his first Emmy® nomination for this role, in the Supporting Actor category. For the past three years Morgan has also been nominated for a Supporting Actor NAACP Image Award. In 2008, the "30 Rock” cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.” Morgan recently wrapped production on Presdisposed, which he stars in alongside Melissa Leo and Jesse Eisenberg. The film will be released in 2012.

2010 was another busy year for Morgan. First up was Kevin Smith's Cop Out, a feature film in which he starred with Bruce Willis. The film centers around two cops given the grim tasks of locating a stolen baseball card to pay for a wedding, rescuing a kidnapped woman, and combating gangsters whose main goals are laundering money and elevating the death count in Brooklyn. In April, Morgan starred in the comedy Death at a Funeral, a remake of the 2007 British movie of the same name, which also featured Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Zoe Saldana and Danny Glover. He also had a starring role in the independent romantic comedy Nailed, opposite Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal, directed by David O. Russell.

In 2009 Morgan made his animation debut, lending his voice for producer Jerry Bruckheimer's G-Force, a combination live action/CG film. Morgan starred as Blaster, one of the highly trained secret agent guinea pigs dispatched to save the world. The film opened number one at the US box office and was celebrated by audiences worldwide. More recently, Morgan lent his voice to the animated adventure film, Rio, about a domesticated macaw that travels down to Rio De Janeiro.

Another milestone for Morgan was reached in 2009 with the release of his first book, a compilation of studied anecdotes and some of the more serious moments that shaped him and his career, entitled I Am The New Black. He also headlined the famed "New York Comedy Festival,” which featured acclaimed comedians including Bill Maher, Andy Samberg, and Patton Oswalt. Morgan rounded out his list of great comedic achievements with the premiere of his first HBO Special, "Black & Blue.”

As a stand-up comic who has headlined across the country, Morgan was first introduced to television audiences in his role as Hustle Man on Fox's hit comedy series "Martin.” He went on to join NBC's "Saturday Night Live” in 1996 where he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellows. After leaving SNL, he went on to star in his own comedy series, NBC's "The Tracy Morgan Show” and voice "Spoonie Luv” on Comedy Central's "Crank Yankers.”

Additional film credits include Superhero Movie; First Sunday (in which he starred opposite Ice Cube and Katt Williams); The Longest Yard (in which he starred opposite Adam Sandler); three films for the Wayans Brothers; as well as the films Little Man, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Head of State.
