The life of a celebrity isn’t so different than the rest of us. There is an ebb and flow for the vast majority of people who score work in the limelight. The only real difference: we don’t make fun of people who are struggling between teaching jobs, or trying to figure out what exactly they want to do next to make some money. The upcoming year is promising to be a dandy in the realm of entertainment–including the U.S. Presidential race — and it’ll be nice to see some old celebrity faces. Here are 12 celebrities who are poised for a serious career comeback in 2016.
12. Tracy Morgan
The comeback is in process, and with a few television appearances—including Saturday Night Live—under his belt, Tracy is proving that he is well on the way to recovery from his near fatal car accident in 2014. This is a safe bet for anyone engaging in life changing conversations about the world of entertainment, because Tracy was enjoying the peak of his career when he was forced to endure one of life’s unexpected tragedies. It wouldn’t be too bold to also imagine Tracy being even better than he was before, possessing more emotional range and perspective following his accident. As it stands, Tracy is attached to a couple of feature film projects, one of which happens to be a Richard Pryor biopic starring Mike Epps, Eddie Murphy and fellow comeback kid, Kate Hudson. Tracy is rumored to be playing legendary comedian Redd Foxx.Buckner/Variety/REX
