Tracy Morgan plays wild and unpredictable movie star Tracy Jordan in the new NBC comedy series "30 Rock."

The single Lemon( Tina Fey ) is living every comedy writer's dream – head writer on a demanding, live TV program in New York City. Her life is jolted when Donaghy interferes with her show, and bullies Lemon into convincing Jordan (Morgan, "Saturday Night Live," "The Longest Yard") — a wild and unpredictable African-American movie star — to join the cast. Now Lemon must manage the unmanageable so that the show – and her dream – can go on.

As a standup comic who headlined across the country, TV audiences first met Morgan in his role as "Hustleman" on the hit comedy series "Martin." Morgan next joined "Saturday Night Live" in 1996 where he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as "Astronaut Jones" and "Brian Fellows." After leaving "Saturday Night Live," Morgan went on to star in his own comedy series "The Tracy Morgan Show" and as the voice of "Spoonie Luv" on "Crank Yankers."

Morgan’s feature-film credits include "The Longest Yard," "Little Man," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Head of State."
