Tracy Morgan in the media

Tracy Morgan has been a comical mastermind in many movies and TV shows. Though his name may not hold the power of say Eddie Murphy or Will Ferrell, he is a top comedian in his own right. The man has been a legend in many different comical venues. He is known as a comedian who sells out seats with out fail. He hasn't had an open seat at a show in nearly fifteen years. He really is everything he can be and so much more in the comedy world. As a comedian he comes from a different place then a lot of fellow comedians. He speaks about the struggles he goes through on an every day basis and turns tragedy into comedy gold. Sadly, his real introduction in to the movie world has just begun. We haven't been able to see enough of the funny man on TV til his inclusion in the show 30 Rock. On 30 Rock he plays a huge part in which he is a rapper actor and makes light of the usually up tight role. While playing a great character on the show he highlights emotions that most other actors really couldn't do. To say that he as achieved a high level success on that show would not be giving enough credit to the emmy award winning comedy. The success of the show is partly due to his level of comedy.

Tracy Morgan on the big screen

Tracy Morgan hasn't had enough opportunity on the big screen as of yet. Hopefully, he will pull out of this in good health because the man deserves some key roles. In movies like death of a salesman he plays a funny yet only small role. Every role in the film is fairly small of course because there is so much going on in the movie. He plays an awesome role in the movie but there really isn't enough movie for him to show off all of his talent. We did get a great role from him in Cop Out where he co-starred Bruce Willis. Being able to star in a movie with a great like Bruce Willis is one heck of a feat in itself. Now that he is starting to get movie roles it appears that we may not get another shot and quite frankly that is a loss for all of us. Now the interesting thing here is that with just one headlining role he has been able to gain so much press and attention. Tracy Morgan is just starting to really become a top name in the industry. He's been a top name in the stand up world but he hasn't received enough movie roles. Even in TV he has been a stellar actor, it's about time he gets a chance to shine on the Big screen.

Tracy Morgan news

Tracy Morgan tragedy

The tragic events that have occurred could leave this man dead or with permanent injury. A few fellow comedian in the vehicle with him have died. A semi truck took out the actors limo and caused a pile up upon multiple cars. Many people were injured and the trucker who caused this was not even slightly remorseful when he was being booked for the incident. The man who caused this must be a man of very little character. To have such a disregard for human life is disgusting to say the least. Whatever happens to man like that really is for the judge and jury to decide but honestly, to be ok with deaths on your head must mean this man is an animal. It's not because of who was hit, but it is because of the overall meaning behind his though process. Forget that Tracy Morgan is a celebrity. The fact that he could cause this harm to any of the people he has caused harm to and there should be true apologetic nature there. Tracy Morgan has been in critical condition for a few days now. Unfortunately, he has only shown slight signs of improvement. On the bright side he isn't showing any signs of getting worse. At this point who is to say how deep the damage is though. So far he is said to have a broken leg broken ribs broken shoulder and that's really all that is being exposed to the media.

Tracy Morgan's future

Hopefully, we will see Tracy Morgan in his funny roles once he has recovered. Since the accident occurs lets hope that he will be able to make light of it in the future as he does with many tragedies in his life. Yet, due to the death of his friend and fellow comedian he may not be able to really make light of this. Not to mention his near death experience is going to cause a lot of pain for him psychologically. They say that comedians can flip anything into comedy but first we have to see what kind of scars this sort of accident leaves. If he is able to recover from this with his witts about him I'm sure he will be back out there making jokes and getting people laughing again. Lets just hope that this accident hasn't effect the actor/comedian too much. I wish Tracy Morgan and his family my prayers that he may recover from this with no permanent damage.

The Trucker

Hopefully, this trucker will learn to care for life on the road other then his own. The man had on his twitter account king of the road out of my way. The man obviously must have been thinking that when he went straight into a limo. We'll see what develops with his future and hopefully we will see him suffer for the multiple lives he has caused to suffer. No family should have to face the pain he has caused. At least it appears that the mas child has a heart and is a good person. Maybe the trucker isn't what we think but writing things like that and acting a certain way after causing so much damage is very misleading.

      Driving a semi-tractor trailer or any vehicle requires a good deal of concentration and incredible skill. I've known my share of OTR drivers. Both my Dad and my husband drove big rigs for a while.

      It's tragic that this accident happened to a great comedian like Tracy Morgan. I'll continue to pray for his recovery and hope that this sad incident brings awareness to others about the issues of proper sleep and safety on the road.

      I appreciate your commenting, it sounds like you have a big heart when it comes to the whole situation. I'm happy to spread the information around and honestly we know that no one should drive with absolutely zero sleep especially in a giant vehicle. Thank you for reading.

      I was so sorry to read about this and have been following Tracy's story, living in PA. I cannot imagine driving without having slept for 24-hours, let alone the size of such a truck...and the shock, fear, anger, just so much trauma that Tracy and his friends are/ will be experiencing for a long time to come. I saw an interview from one of the gentlemen involved where they literally could not see what was coming as there were no (or occluded) windows in the back of their very awful that impact must have been...and that poor man (his family) who died. And this could have been prevented.

      Thank you, Joe...good job of reporting this to those who are unaware.

      Thank you for your comment, that kind of carelessness and thoughtlessness behind the wheel should earn him a stiff punishment especially if he had been running on no sleep, that is truly irresponsible.

      A car accident is certainly one of the worse things that can happen to a person. Motorists and especially truckers should know they are potential killers on the road. The driver of the truck was obviously irresponsible. According to the latest article: "Charged with vehicular manslaughter, Roper, who pleaded not guilty, is free on $50,000 bail. Prosecutors say Roper may have gone more than 24 hours without sleep before the crash."

      It is a shame what happened with this accident causing the death of his friend and leaving Tracy in such a bad way. I'm sure we will hear more about this once his rehab is underway and he has the wherewithal to be able to give an interview. Prayers are sent. It is such a shame.
