Morgan recently appeared on the 'Today' show and reflected on the car crash he was in last year as well as his slow recovery. Morgan told Matt Lauer, "There are times where I get the headaches, and the nose bleeds. I won't even let my lady know because I don't want her to be worried about it."

Other newest honorees in the group include Bradley Cooper, Ashley Judd, Michael Keaton, Rob Lowe, and LL Cool J. The Chair of the Walk of Fame Selection Committee remarked, "After much deliberation, we feel that we have selected a great group of talent for this coveted award.
