*Tracy Morgan was truly missed on Sunday’s “Saturday Night Live” 40th Anniversary special.
Producers of the show had his former “30 Rock” co-stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin lead a tribute segment to the comedian, who hasn’t made a public appearance since the car accident last year that left one dead and Morgan and three others seriously injured.
Sources tell the New York Post’s Page Six that Morgan, an “SNL” regular from 1996 till 2003, was asked to appear on-air and make his TV comeback.
“They really wanted him to be there, but when it came down to it, he just isn’t mentally or emotionally ready to appear on TV yet,” a friend of the star told Page Six.
Fey and Alec Baldwin instead paid tribute to the recuperating actor with a classic clip. Watch below:
