Lady and the Blog attended a taping of “The View” with special guest Tracy Morgan, in town promoting his upcoming film “Rio” and what a great way to spend a morning!
I am not a regular watcher of “The View” but after this taping, I may have to change that. The ladies of “The View” were entertaining and hysterical. Even when the cameras were off between segments, they kept the audience in hysterics. The studio where “The View” is filmed has a wonderful intimate feel and it was amazing to watch how quickly they changed the set from the ladies sitting around the table to the ladies sitting on the couch – and back again completely changing the set during the commercial break.
The special guest of the day was Tracy Morgan and he did not disappoint. I am a huge fan of Tracy Morgan on “30 Rock” and I was so excited to hear that he would be lending his talents to the new animated movie “Rio” as the voice of the bulldog, Luiz. Tracy Morgan was his usual hysterical self cracking up the ladies of “The View” and the audience alike. When discussing the film “Rio”, Morgan said simply:
Love inspires…I don’t care what you’re going through, love is the answer. If you’ve got love, you’re good…and if you don’t got it, I got it for you. I’ve got truckloads of it outside.
Tracy Morgan’s voice work in “Rio” puts him in great company. Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, George Lopez, Jermaine Clement, Leslie Mann, Jake T. Austin, will.i.am and Jamie Foxx also lent their voices to characters in this animated love story.
Set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the story follows a macaw, Blu (Eisenberg) who cannot fly and adventure and hilarity ensue. From the clips and previews, it looks like it hits the perfect mark of being an animated movie that both children and adults can enjoy. I can’t wait to check it out!
“The View” airs Monday to Friday at 11:00 a.m. EST on ABC. To see more of the hilarious Tracy Morgan, tune into “30 Rock” Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. EST on NBC, or check out “Rio” in theaters now. Can’t wait? Check out some hilarious clips from the movie here.
