Most of you probably saw Tracy Morgan‘s emotional appearance at the Emmy Awards a few days ago. It was a lovely moment seeing Morgan back on stage. Just hearing him joke about getting people pregnant again was enough to make me smile for a few days.
And now we have one more reason to continue smiling. 14 months after the tragic car accident that left his good friend dead, Morgan has decided to return to acting. He will join Charlie Day and Ice Cube in the comedy Fist Fight, which tells the story of two teachers (Day and Cube) who work in a terrible school system together. Day’s character is challenged to a fist fight by Cube’s character.
Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) plays the school’s principal, and the extremely hilarious Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street) will play a guidance counselor. If you want to see her amazing skills, just check out this video of her and Jonah Hill.
Who will Morgan be playing in the film? Well, according to Variety, Morgan will be playing a coach at the high school. Fist Fight was written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux.
Production on the film will start later this month in Atlanta. Also, be sure to catch Morgan as he returns to host Saturday Night Live on October 17, 2015.[mashshare]
