Tracy Morgan has spent most of the last two decades on NBC airwaves, but it was his lawyer who took his place on the “Today” Show on Monday morning, according to The Wrap.
The attorney, Benedict Morelli, joined host Matt Lauer to give an update on the former “SNL” and “30 Rock” star, who was critically injured in a late night car crash in June.
“He's still struggling, but he's a fighter,” Morelli reported. “He's had issues before that he's fought through and he's fighting hard. The interesting thing is at the beginning, the internet was saying he was dead, and then they said they amputated his leg. Now it's coming out that he's doing great — none of those things are true or accurate.”
