Road To Recovery
According to Morgan, this was because he still had plenty of unfinished business left among the living.
The 30 Rock star — who's currently racking up standup gigs and has a new FX show in the works with Jordan Peele — joked that he didn't go up to heaven because he thought the white light "was the police." He added more seriously that his late father is the reason he's still here.
"He was the one who said, 'Go home, son. I ain't ready for you yet,' " Morgan said. "I don't think I cheated death. I think this was the plan. My room wasn't ready."
