The former 30 Rock star suffered severe head trauma and broken bones in the New Jersey crash in June, 2014, which claimed the life of his comedian pal James 'Jimmy MACk' MCNair.

Morgan is slowly returning to the spotlight and he received a standing ovation as he hit the stage at the Emmy Awards on Sunday (20Sep15) to present a prize.

Now he is gearing up for his film comeback after entering negotiations for a role in Ice Cube and Charlie Day's upcoming comedy, Fist Fight, about two teachers who clash at school.

Dennis Haysbert is also in talks for a part, while JoAnna Garcia Swisher has signed on as Day's pregnant onscreen wife.

Morgan will return to his roots at U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live in October (15) as one of the show's celebrity hosts.
