Tracy Morgan has been gone for a while but he just might be back! When he graced the Emmy’s with his presence on Sunday night, you can tell the people missed him when they got up to give him a standing ovation.
Morgan has been laying low since he was severely injured in a car accident last June 2014 when an 18-wheeler collided with his limo. Fully recovered and ready to get back to work, Morgan is in talks with New Line for a school themed comedy, Fist Fight. This will be his first gig back since the accident.
Directed by Richie Keen, Fist Fight is a story of two teachers (Ice Cube and Charlie Day), who work in a broken down school system and wind up in an epic fist fight. Actors Jillian Bell and Dean Norris are already on board too, and if the deal works out, Morgan will be playing the school’s coach.
