*Tracy Morgan made it known this morning that he wants a shot at David Letterman’s chair once the late night host retires in 2015.
“I’m throwing myself in the mix!” the “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” alum told Matt Lauer after discussing “Rio 2” on Today. “That would be interesting — I don’t know but I think it’d be a different perspective. We’ll shake the game up. I think Jimmy Fallon needs some competition out there!”
When asked who would lead his late-night band, Morgan responded, “It would be different every night — it might be Drake one night, it might Sly and the Family Stone one night,” he said. “I’m gonna shake it up, be creative.”
Morgan also added that his ideal guest would be “Bruce Vilanch … or the black dude from ‘Magnum, P.I.,’ if he doesn’t work too much. Who knows!” And that his signature sign-off would be: “Who’s comin’ wit’ me? I don’t know where I’m goin’ but who’s comin’ wit’ me?”
