Tracy Morgan went through physical rehabilitation to physically recover from a lethal automobile disintegrate virtually 4 years ago, but in order to mend mentally, “The Last O.G.” star applied unorthodox methods.
“My son…he turned me onto’ Key and Peele, ’ that helped my healing process “because thats” the funniest circumstance. I was sitting there cracked the f-k up not knowing my name, but I was tittering, ” Morgan said in a conversation at New York Magazine’s Vulture Festival Saturday night.
“Months afterwards I would watch it every day.”
Morgan’s love of “Key and Peele” stimulated him to reach out to Jordan Peele, who now raises “The Last-place O.G.” The duo converged for the first time hours before Morgan astonished the 2015 Emmys with an appearance, where he received a standing ovation.
In addition to Peele’s series, Morgan too watched footage of the car gate-crash that took James McNair’s life and left Morgan in a coma.
“I would watch the accident on YouTube. It helped my healing process, ” he shared. “I would watch where I got hit, where my friend died.”
“That was part of my healing, watching it.”
