| Filed under: Sad SadTracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan has been through A LOT.

While we're so happy to see Tracy hitting up Saturday Night Live and embarking on a new comedy tour after his devastating car crash, it saddens us to know that he was once in so much emotional pain. In fact, the incident became so harrowing for the comedian admitted to Rolling Stone Magazine that he once considered suicide.

Morgan's struggle was extremely tough due to his mass of physical injuries and fear that he would lose his "funny".

The actor confided:

"I said, 'If my funny ever went away, I'd die.' And I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts – I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn't walk."

Wow. How heartbreaking.

Luckily for Tracy, he had the support of his wife Megan Wollover, children, and fans during this trying time. We don't even want to think about where Trace would be today if it weren't for his loving family!

Today, the comedian is looking towards the future and knows there's plenty he still needs to do here on earth:

"I still have shit here to do. It's gonna take more than 18 wheels for me to get out of here. I have to raise my girl, raise my wife, raise my family. Gotta keep my octopus alive. Gotta keep my sharks alive. Those are God's creatures! I'm needed!"

Ha! We love how Tracy's sense of humor was not affected one bit in the crash!

Congrats on your amazing recovery, Tracy!

He sure knows how to put on a show!

Just because the Oscars end once they announce Best Picture doesn't mean Hollywood has to stop partying.

While many A-listers are attending parties, Jimmy Kimmel takes it upon himself every year to put on the best ABC after-show possible, and this year was no exception!

Video: See ALL Of The Funniest Moments From The Oscars!

We already showed you how Ben Affleck snuck Matt Damon onto the Jimmy Kimmel Live! set under his coat, but two of the other best moments from the late night show were much more movie-centric.

First, Jimmy teamed up with Tracy Morgan and J.K. Simmons to make Clubber, a much less inspiring sequel to Creed

Then, he really knocked it out of the park with Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, and Cloris Leachman in Trumped, a parody about the Donald Trump campaign that perfectly follows the plot of The Producers.

Ch-ch-check out Clubber and Trumped (below)!!!

Walmart Truck Driver Involved In Tracy Morgan's Car Crash Has Been Charged With Manslaughter

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Tracy MorganWalmart

He's also being charged with vehicular homicide and aggravated assault.

So much for that plan.

Kevin Roper, the Walmart truck driver who hit Tracy Morgan's limo last year, wanted to get his criminal charges thrown out — but it looks like that didn't work exactly out.

On Wednesday, a New Jersey grand jury indicted Kevin for his involvement in the accident that killed comedian James McNair and injured the 30 Rock alum.

The grand jury formally charged the driver with first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree vehicular homicide, and third-degree aggravated assault.

The trucker wanted the charges dismissed because his lawyer, David Glassman, said the actor's settlement with the department store drew a lot of attention toward the case.

The attorney claimed this would prevent Roper's trial from being a fair and impartial one.

The Truck Driver Involved In Tracy Morgan's Tragic Car Accident Wants His Criminal Charges Thrown Out

| Filed under: Legal MattersTracy MorganWalmart

no title

The truck driver involved in Tracy Morgan's horrific June 2014 car crash is hoping for a miracle.

According to legal reps, the truck driver AKA Kevin Roper wants criminal charges thrown out against him despite the severity of the case. For those who don't know, the crash killed Tracy's close friend and fellow comedian, James McNair.

Video: Tracy Finally Returns To SNL!

Here's the tricky part: Morgan recently won a MASSIVE amount of money from a lawsuit against Walmart, the company Roper was driving for at the time of the incident. Given that Walmart essentially admitted wrongdoing by giving T.M. the cash, we have a feeling Kevin's request will be denied.

Despite the evidence against him, Roper believes the case should be dropped due to the public nature. Now that the legal matter is all over the news, the former truck driver thinks he won't be able to get a fair trial.

Unsurprisingly enough, this isn't the first time Kevin tried to get the charges dropped.

We'll be sure to keep you updated on the case when he makes his appeal this Tuesday.
