Of all the roles that he’s done throughout his long career, Louis Armstrong remains Tracy Morgan’s dream role. And as it turns out, he’s doing everything he can to make that a reality.
Back in 2018, Morgan told Howard Stern about his plan to do a makeup test and then self finance a trailer of him as Armstrong. Well, according to Jermaine Fowler, he has done just that.
Fowler, his co-star from Coming 2 America, weighed in on it in a recent interview. “I do. I would love to see him do something dramatic. In fact, he showed us a clip of a movie he’s financing that’s really, really dope. He wants to play Louis Armstrong in a biopic and I believe he can do it.“
He continued, “He sounds exactly like him and looks exactly like him, and I was blown away by it. If he can truly pull that off I think it’ll put Tracy on another level altogether.”
So there you have it. We’re hoping this goes well, and Tracy is able to live out this dream of his. We definitely think he has the chops to pull it off. We hope it happens!
