On Monday it was announced that a new crop of Hollywood talent would be receiving a spot on the most famous sidewalk in the world, The Hollywood Walk of Fame. And among this year’s honorees was entertainer Tracy Morgan.
Morgan took to Twitter on Tuesday to express his gratitude over being chosen. He also suggested that his star be placed near his “biological father,” actor Charlton Heston, putting to rest the fears he expressed in an interview with Matt Lauer earlier this month—nearly a year after the car crash that left him critically injured—when he said, “I love comedy, and I wonder how I’m gonna be funny again. Remembering my identity. What do I do?”
I am honored to be getting a walk of fame star. I hope they put me next to my biological father Charlton Heston from Planet of the Apes!

Other honorees in this year’s Walk of Fame class include Steve Carell, Bradley Cooper, Ashley Judd, Michael Keaton, Kurt Russell, Quentin Tarantino, Kathy Bates, David Duchovny, Allison Janney, Rob Lowe, LL Cool J, Cyndi Lauper, Adam Levine, Bruno Mars, and Kevin Hart.
