Shocking reports out of the Sundance Film Festival indicate that the movies have been overshadowed by celebrity behavior–in this year’s edition, by the collapse of 30 Rock comic Tracy Morgan. The Hollywood Reporter, er, reports that Mr. Morgan collapsed after an awards ceremony honoring him (and other megastars like Kate Bosworth and AnnaLynne McCord).
He was escorted to a nearby hospital; he reportedly “seemed out of control” at the ceremony but hospital spokesmen said that no drugs or alcohol were in his system. While Mr. Morgan has a history of substance abuse and health problems (including a recent kidney transplant), “seeming out of control” is also his modus operandi. We just wonder if Tina Fey has grown weary of planning episodes responding to Mr. Morgan’s real-life issues.
