Currently starring on NBC's Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning "30 Rock", Morgan appears opposite Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin as "Tracy Jordan", the unpredictable star of Lemon's (Fey) hit variety show, "TGS with Tracy Jordan".

The "30 Rock" cast has also won the Screen Actors Guild Award for "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series".
Last year was another busy one for Morgan. He was heard in the animated film RIO, as the bulldog Luiz. Morgan next tackled the drama THE SON OF NO ONE with Al Pacino and Channing Tatum. The crime-thriller based on a young cop battling a secret from his past was selected to be a part of last year's Sundance Film Festival and was released in November. PREDISPOSED, his next film which he stars in alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo was also an official selection at Sundance this year and will be out in late summer.
In 2009 Morgan made his animation debut lending his voice for Jerry Bruckheimer's G-FORCE, a combination live-action/CG film. Morgan starred as "Blaster", one of the highly trained secret agent guinea pigs dispatched to save the world. The film opened number one in US box offices and was celebrated by audiences worldwide.
