Doesn’t it seem like we hear news about a famous actor or actress guest starring on 30 Rock at least once a week? The latest to join the Emmy winning show is actress Salma Hayek, who has been signed up for a two-episode stint at the behest of Tina Fey. Apparently Ms. Fey wanted Ms. Hayek so badly that she called the actress personally to get her to sign on. Ms. Hayek is joined by Oprah Winfrey, Steve Martin, Jennifer Aniston, Leighton Meester, Blake Lively and Will Arnett as celebrities who will be trekking over to Rockefeller Center at some point this fall.
Meanwhile, in other Tina Fey news… Our crush will reportedly be appearing on tomorrow’s Saturday Night Live winking and golly-gee’ing her way through playing Sarah Palin in a skit about the Vice Presidential debate. No word yet on who will play Senator Joe Biden (might we suggest Jason Sudekis, with his clenched jaw demeanor), but supposedly actress Queen Latifah will be taking on the role of debate moderator Gwen Ifill. And if that’s still not enough to get you to DVR SNL, maybe host Anne Hathaway and musical guest The Killers will do the trick.
