NBC’s 30 Rock is the last series to embrace revivals, but the fan-fave meta-comedy may nonetheless get second life. Star Jane Krakowski says 30 Rock revival conversations have at least happened, and could bear fruit before long.
We very nearly lost Tracy Morgan once upon a time, and now the 30 Rock and SNL alum has finally made his TV return. Get an extended look at Morgan’s new TBS post-prison comedy The Last OG, produced by Jordan Peele and featuring the always-delightful Tiffany Haddish.
It’s been almost three years since the tragic bus crash that nearly claimed Tracy Morgan’s life. The incident still weighs heavily on the 30 Rock and SNL star, but not enough to keep from laughing, as we see in a first trailer for Morgan’s new heartfelt Netflix comedy special, Staying Alive.
It does the heart good to see someone as deserving as Macon Blair meeting with the success that’s been coming to him. He was such a gnarly treat in Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin and Green Room (portraying an ill-prepared vengeance-seeker in the former, a neo-Nazi flunky in the latter) and then made waves of his own this past January when his directorial debut I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore took home the Grand Jury Prize for U.S. Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival. A new announcement today indicates that he’s getting bumped up to the major leagues, with a bigger budget and name-brand stars at his disposal.
Nary a day seems to pass without Netflix’s comedy vacuum sucking up the next A-list special, though why complain? Adored icon and survivor Tracy Morgan now joins Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, Dave Chappelle and more with a new standup comedy special, set to debut in May.
If Alec Baldwin was going to make a full-time SNL return, it’d make sense that 30 Rock co-star and SNL alum Tracy Morgan might not be far behind. See for yourself, as Morgan returns to his SNL stomping grounds as one of Beyonce’s unborn twins.
More often than not, schoolteachers have just as much beef with each other as the students they teach. Acting like models of excellence in front of 30 or 40 kids a day has got to be exhausting, and sometimes we all just need to let off some steam. A movie starring both Charlie Day and Ice Cube — not to mention Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, and Christina Hendricks — hardly has to be marketed, but Warner Bros. has just released their second trailer for next year’s Fist Fight.
