Tracy Morgan remains in critical condition and is being treated a New Jersey hospital, following a fatal car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike over the weekend.
According to Morgan’s rep, the comedian is showing signs of improvement, but that doctors expect the star to be hospitalized for several weeks. “He has been more responsive, which is an incredibly encouraging sign,” Morgan’s publicist, Kay Lewis said on Sunday.
“His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans,” he added.
As previously reported, Morgan was a passenger in a limo van early Saturday morning when a tractor-trailer struck the van, causing it to overturn. According to Sgt. Gregory Williams of New Jersey State Police, “the driver of the tractor-trailer failed to observe slow-moving traffic ahead.”
Comedian James McNair, who was also a passenger in the limo was killed in the crash.
On Saturday night, the truck driver responsible for the crash turned himself into police and was released on a $50,000 bail. Kevin Roper, 35, is being charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.
50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”
Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.
While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!
All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.
And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.
Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
