Comedian Tracy Morgan will soon be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Morgan joins other celebrities who received the honor, including fellow comedian Kevin Hart and rapper turned actor LL Cool J.
Earlier this month, Tracy Morgan expressed his desire to return to the stage after surviving a fatal car crash that took the life of his dear friend and fellow comedian, James McNair. “I promise you,” Morgan told Matt Lauer. “One day, when I’m 100 percent — I’m going to grab that mic and I’m never going to let it go. Never.”
Morgan took to Twitter, in characteristic comedic fashion, to state his sentiments and expectations for the forthcoming honor:
I am honored to be getting a walk of fame star. I hope they put me next to my biological father Charlton Heston from Planet of the Apes!
