Relax, the actor who draws a fine line between insanity and his acting roles isn’t dead, but is more exhausted than anything else. Morgan was rushed to hospital after collapsing at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards where he was being honoured with the Spotlight Initiative Award on Sunday.

After giving a speech, Morgan was escorted out of the building, where he collapsed and was taken to the Park City Medical Center Hospital. A spokesperson has stated that no drugs or alcohol was found in his system after a medical evaluation.

Other sources however, told the Hollywood Reporter that the actor seemed to be extremely inebriated, and refused to give interviews while on the Red Carpet for the event, while barely managing to climb the stairs for the dinner.

Morgan’s rep released the following statement after the actor was hospitalized: From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention.

He is with his fiancé and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.

Morgan, who  had a kidney transplant operation two years ago,stars in the film Predisposed, which is screening at the Sundance Film Festival. Lets hope that nothing happens to the mad actor. He’s one of the few reasons to actually watch television, with his iconic role on 30 Rock.
