Tracy Morgan will be noticeably missing from a few episodes of 30 Rock as he recovers from a kidney transplant.
The star recently underwent a kidney transplant but it looks like he’ll be up and making us laugh in no time. “Tracy is doing well and taking some much needed time to recover after the surgery,” Morgan’s rep revealed to UsMagazine.com. “He is looking forward to going back to work after the holidays.”
The character Tracy Jordan and 30 Rock are a match made in comedy heaven, so how in the world do you explain his absence — even if it is just for a few episodes? Leave it to creator Tina Fey and her Emmy-winning writers to use it to their advantage to spin more hysterical story lines. Tracy Morgan’s character will allegedly be “away” after suffering a “meltdown” caused by a string of good fortune — brilliant!
Tracy Morgan is a diabetic and recently shed 10 pounds to try and better his health with the weight loss system NutriSystem. “I’m not obese or anything, but I wanted to come down off the weight and lower my blood pressure,” he explained back in June. “And I’m diabetic — it’s great for that.”
We wish Tracy Morgan a speedy recovery and a quick return to our television sets!
