Not his time. Tracy Morgan told Oprah Winfrey during a sit-down interview that aired on Sunday, April 3, that while he was in a coma following his near-fatal June 2014 accident, he visited his late father, Jimmy Morgan Sr., in heaven.
“I was talking to my dad. He had this green thing on and I just remember him saying, ‘I’m not ready for you, son,’ and I started crying so hard,” Morgan, 47, recalled to Winfrey. According to the former SNL star — who has spent the past two years recovering from his injuries, which included broken bones and a traumatic brain injury — his dad told him that he needed to “finish the job.”
“[He told me] I’m a fighter … I’ve got to get back to this little girl and my wife,” Morgan added, referring to his wife, Megan Wollover, and their 2-year-old daughter, Maven. “‘Finish the job. That’s my granddaughter,’” he added. “‘Finish the job.’”
Winfrey then asked the 30 Rock comedian if he thinks that he can ever feel normal again after visiting the other side.
“No, no,” Morgan told the talk show host. “I told my wife that the other day. Something’s different.”
