Presenting EW’s official 30 Rock-tionary, everything from “avian bone syndrome” to “zing!”

Lemon out!

Drug dealers, rehab appointments, piano auditions, and a sock puppet named Julio — sounds like the perfect ingredients for…a family comedy starring Jesse Eisenberg? In the upcoming Why Stop Now, that’s what Eisenberg’s character, Eli, has to juggle. Now cram yourself into the backseat at EW.com and watch an exclusive clip from the movie.

He has to be a little more responsible and write a little bit and think a little more before he does it next time. That’s why I don’t like people having cameras in the comedy clubs, because you’re just throwing thoughts out there, and that’s the creative process. You’re going to offend some people as you’re finding the lines. Now, he didn’t find a line, he found a cliff. But unfortunately, that happens.

Tracy Morgan’s Little Man co-star Marlon Wayan weighs in on that whole homophobic rant thing.

I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.

30 Rock actor Tracy Morgan has issued an apology to fans and the gay and lesbian community for an anti-gay rant during his weekend gig at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

Nashville native Kevin Rogers, whose account of the event on Facebook first grabbed media attention, spoke with EW earlier today and said he had gone to the show expecting a night of comedy, but left feeling “like the butt of the joke” after the 30 Rock actor launched into his tirade. ”I can take a joke, but I absolutely did not expect a rant like this in the middle of a comedy act,” Rogers told EW via phone.

Behold, once and future Academy Award nominees Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo. These two will be teaming up for a new, Oscar bait-y movie called Predisposed:

The film’s plot will revolve around a rehab-bound mom (Leo) whose overachieving son (Eisenberg) helps her get intoxicated again in order to make her health insurance pay for treatment. 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan is set to star as Leo’s drug dealer.
