Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan has found Roommates for the big screen.

The 30 Rock resident will headline and produce the comedy Freshman Roommates, Variety reports.

Based on the infamous e-mail scams by a Nigerian prince looking for help in securing his fortune, the film will explore the possibility of an e-mail not being fake. Morgan will play the aforementioned prince, a spoiled son of an overthrown African dictator, who tracks down the young man who answered his e-mail during a drunken stupor.

Script is by Saturday Night Live alum John Mulaney and Nick Kroll, who wrote the flick with Morgan in mind.

The comedian will produce the flick with 30 Rock executive producer David Miner and Miner's 3 Arts colleague, Dave Becky.
