• 30 Rock ended last after seven series

    Morgan's characters on Saturday Night Live included Astronaut Jones and Uncle Jemima

     

    Morgan starred alongside Jane Krakowski, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey and Jack McBrayer in 30 Rock

    Morgan was a series regular on Saturday Night Live for seven years and earned an Emmy nomination for best supporting actor for his role in the sitcom 30 Rock.

     

    He was known for his outrageous impressions, including Mike Tyson and Oprah Winfrey, but struggled with alcoholism.

     

    During one notorious live TV appearance in Texas, he removed his shirt and announced "someone's gonna get pregnant".

     

    After being arrested twice for drink driving and ordered to wear an ankle monitoring device, Morgan said it took tough talk from his then-teenage son to sober him up.

     

    He found an ally in fellow Saturday Night Live star Tina Fey, who wrote Morgan into her sitcom 30 Rock, playing an exaggerated version of himself, called Tracy Jordan.

     

    Fey described his character as a "lunatic comedy star", whose antics frequently threaten to derail a comedy TV show, loosely based on Saturday Night Live.

    Following Saturday's crash, Morgan's 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin said: "Let's hope for a full and speedy recovery for Tracy and the others involved in that crash".

     

    Chat show host Conan O'Brien added: "Thinking about Tracy Morgan and his family today. Hoping for a fast recovery for this sweet and uniquely funny man."

     

    Morgan's spokesperson, Lewis Kay, said Morgan's family was "tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans".
