Tracy Morgan will miss two '30 Rock' episodes after surgery
A mid-December kidney transplant will cause Tracy Morgan to miss at least two "30 Rock" episodes this spring.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Morgan's surgery was successful and Morgan's recovery time will be built into the show's plotline. Morgan's Tracy Jordan will apparently have a meltdown of some sort, but a meltdown stemming from something good in his life.
Does that mean there's an Oscar in Tracy Jordan's future?
The Morgan/Jordan-free episodes of "30 Rock" will air in March.
"Tracy is doing well and taking some much needed time to recover after the surgery. He is looking forward to going back to work after the holidays," Morgan's rep tells EW.
Morgan was nominated for an Emmy for his "30 Rock" work in 2009.
