“It’s weird to see white people walking down Myrtle Avenue, unafraid,” Morgan said. “I’m a black man from Brooklyn and I’m afraid. I come out of a coma and everything has changed!”
Morgan, who’s upcoming TBS show The Last O.G. is set in Brooklyn, told Kimmel he was well known locally as a kid, being the one who had pooped in protest at the public swimming pool.
When Kimmel asked, Morgan revealed who he most wants to work with: Eddie Murphy.
And, asked about his Halloween plans, costume-wise, Morgan said, “I live in an affluent neighborhood since the Walmart settlement; I live in Alpine, New Jersey. That’s all hedge funds. So I can go as me and frighten everyone.”
Morgan was severely injured and in a coma after a 2014 highway crash that killed comic James “Jimmy Mack” McNair; the National Transportation Safety Board placed blame on a sleep-deprived Wal-Mart truck driver.
