Comedian Tracy Morgan may have a lot on his plate, but he's still smiling his way through life. In addition to starring in the Disney animated movie G-Force, the 30 Rock star just received his first Emmy nomination for his role on the show. He's also spending the summer shooting another film, Kevin Smith's A Couple of Dicks.
While he's still got time off from promoting his memoir I'm the New Black, Tracy Morgan spoke to USA Today about the current state of his life now that success is definitely coming his way.
"You want to know what happiness is? It's having something to look forward to, and I have all that stuff to look forward to," Morgan said. "Right now, I'm just basking in the glory. I'm just enjoying my time in the spotlight."
The actor also has other plans besides staying in the public eye. "I might buy Coney Island," Tracy Morgan joked. "That's the hardest part: to get the money to catch up with the funny."
Lucky for him, he has 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey who admires him enough to give him a role on the series.
"She told me to fly right," Morgan declared. "Tina Fey is down like four flat tires. I love her. That's my girl, Tina Fey-Fey. She's the coolest. That's my sister from another mother with a different color."
With most of his success being brought about by his wacky TV alter ego Tracy Jordan, Tracy Morgan couldn't help but smile about that as well. "Tracy Jordan is a part of Tracy Morgan. Tracy Morgan isn't a part of Tracy Jordan. Tracy Jordan is just a figment of somebody's imagination. Tracy Morgan isn't as unstable as Tracy Jordan. This is weird for me to talk in third person. Tracy Morgan doesn't run down the street in his underwear. I don't party no more."
