'30 Rock' actor speaks up for organ donation

NEW YORK (AP) - Actor Grizz Chapman of NBC's "30 Rock" is serving as an advocate for organ donation, just a month after undergoing a kidney transplant.

Spokeswoman Anne Finn says Chapman will speak Thursday at New York's Montefiore Medical Center at an event observing National Minority Organ Donor Awareness Day. Chapman received his new kidney at that facility.

Chapman was diagnosed with high blood pressure a decade ago. He learned several years later that he was suffering from kidney disease. Until his transplant, he was on dialysis three times a week.

He and Kevin Brown, as the character Dot Com, appear as the two-man entourage for a hapless comedian played by Tracy Morgan on the "30 Rock" sitcom.
