'SNL' Alums Say They Are Excited For Tracy Morgan's Return: 'That Was Home For Him For So Long'
Tracy Morgan’s friends at Saturday Night Live are celebrating his upcoming return to the show.
It was announced earlier this week that Morgan will host SNL in October, just 18 months after he was injured in a deadly car crash.
INSIDE EDITION caught up with SNL alums Seth Myers, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen at the launch of their new IFC comedy series, Documentary Now, which premieres Thursday night on IFC at 10 p.m., and Morgan’s recovery was on everyone's mind.
Meyers said: “I can't imagine a better place for him to make his return to the stage. That was home for him for so long. He will just be so natural there and I can’t wait to see it.”
“I am just so happy to see him performing. He is one of the best,” said Hader.
Armisen added: “I’m happy that he's okay. It was scary.”
Morgan was critically injured in June 2014 when his limo van was hit by a Walmart truck. He reportedly suffered brain damage and continues physical rehab.
Morgan's close friend, fellow comedian James McNair, was killed in the accident and his family settled with Walmart for $10 million.
