Tracy Morgan Undergoes Kidney Transplant

"30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan is recovering from a kidney transplant.

A statement released Monday by Morgan's publicist says Morgan is doing well and taking "much-needed time" to recover from the surgery earlier this month.

The statement says the actor-comedian looks forward to returning to work on the New York-based NBC sitcom after the holidays.

The 42-year-old Morgan plays the goofy star of a TV show on "30 Rock." Another "30 Rock" cast member, Grizz Chapman, also received a new kidney earlier this year.

NBC didn't immediately respond to a query about how Morgan's surgery would affect production of the sitcom.

    So, I wonder if he was on the waiting list for a new transplant? Or because of his status and money, he got pushed straight to the top of the list. But yeah good for him.

    The 5 sentence article that you didn't read says who he is, twice. As for you idea that every story on a news site should be specifically relevant to your own interests. Get over yourself.
