Tracy Morgan…not a fan of some SNL cast members
Tracy Morgan has a new tell-all book. Unsurprisingly, he didn’t exactly get along with all of his co-workers.
“None of the cast I came up with saw this future for me,” reveals Morgan in ‘I Am the New Black,’ out next Tuesday. “All I have to say about that is, where’s Chris Kattan now? Where’s Cheri Oteri now? That b—- can’t even get arrested.”
But it wasn’t just work at ‘SNL.’ Morgan goes into erotic detail describing an unofficial road trip to an illegal strip club called the Loft.
“I invited everyone to go down there one week,” explains Morgan. “And Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch and a few others came along. I didn’t tell any of them what they were in for, so it was all cool when we got there. … Then these two girls came out onstage and started [engaging in sex acts], and that just shut it down. All the grips and crew guys from ‘SNL’ were standing around and loving it, but my castmates took one look at that, turned right around and rushed out of there.”
Morgan felt misunderstood by the ‘SNL’ cast. “I had my finger on the pulse of urban comedy, but when I brought my act to ‘SNL,’ those mother——— just felt bad for me,” confides Morgan. But he does have praise for his ‘30 Rock’ co-star, Tina Fey. “Tina wasn’t scared to come into my world and find the funny up in there. She’s that kind of cool,” he writes. (via PopEaters)
Honestly, I’d love to interview Morgan about his time at SNL (or I guess read the book). I wonder if being the token black guy was the reason that no one foresaw his future or his work ethic, or what?
…shout out to Cheri Oteri.
P.S. yes, I could have used the picture of the book for the picture in this post…but I love Brian Fellows too much.
