Most of us know Tracy Morgan from his hilarious performances on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Yet three days ago his new movie “The Son of No One,” a police/crime drama, released in the United States, marking just the second time the comedian has starred in a dramatic film.
The movie has an incredible cast. as Morgan co-stars with Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, Katie Holmes and Channing Tatum.
For those wondering if Morgan actually had the acting chops to pull it off, check out the review he got from LA Times writer Robert Abele. Although Abele was mostly unimpressed with the movie as a whole, he was more than surprised by Morgan’s acting skills: “The shocker, though, is Tracy Morgan’s concentrated, powerful turn as Jonathan’s estranged best bud, transformed into a near-catatonic, mentally disturbed shell. His faraway look says much more than the incoherent strands of Montiel’s plot.”
