Funnyman Tracy Morgan is keeping it on the up and up by producing and starring in a new comedy "Freshman Roomates" for Montecito and Paramount Pictures.

According to Variety, TJ Miller ("Cloverfield") will also star in the film that is inspired by the proliferation of email scams purporting to be sent by a Nigerian prince looking for help in accessing his fortune.

"Freshman Roommates" asks the question what if one of the emails isn't a scam. Story kicks off when a young man answers one such email during a drunken stupor. Soon thereafter, the spoiled son of a deposed African dictator (Morgan) shows up at his door, looking to secure his inheritance.
I don't know about this one guys. I mean maybe it's just me but it seems like every film Tracy is in, there's some kind of scam or unlawful behavior. But maybe this one will suprise me and turn out to be something else.
