'30 Rock': Soon-to-be Jon Hammier, again!

Jon Hamm will return to 30 Rock to reprise his role as lovably oblivious pretty person Dr. Baird on Feb. 11! This obviously deserves its own post, and not just a tragically unillustrated bullet point in the Mixed-Up TCA Press Tour Files of Mr. Michael E. Ausiello (I doubt his middle name starts with E; I just like thinking about this book).

What does it all mean?! Will Liz Lemon give the guy with a face for Disney animation a second chance? I don’t see this as a revenge plot, considering that when the good doctor last rolled out of frame, it was on a sad motorcycle sure to wobble over at any second, and Liz pretty much had the upper hand/better tennis swing. But who knows — I wouldn’t put it past Lesbian Yellow Sourfruit to turn down a complimentary app sampler should she happen to meet Dr. Baird at a restaurant. How do you think Hamm’s return to 30 Rock will go down? Easier than Salmon Bourguignon with Orange Gatorade?

    In the famous words of Jack Donaghy “I’ve got to get back into that bubble”. I hope they explore the entitlements of the attractive angle more – that was hilarious.

    “This racket is farked and you’re a cheating b!tch!”

    I just hope Dr. Drew doesn’t challenge Liz to a tennis rematch – I don’t see that going well for him.

      he says “this racquet is a fart”

        that’s what i thought, too. hilarious episode!

        “where’s the complimentary app sampler??”

  • Anne

    I loved him on 30 Rock! I just re-watched “The Bubble” episode last week…it kills me every time.

      I’m always singing “Working on my night cheese” around the house. And when my wife just got a Snuggie this Christmas, there’s been plenty of “fart-filled Slanket” jokes.

      • Madd

        Slanklets are SO much better than Snuggies. My fiancĂ©e gave me one for Christmas, and there’s a great cheese shop near where I live in Greenwich Village, so I basically am Liz Lemon.

  • jim

    He could just stand there and I would watch.

  • Ambient Lite

    Jon Hamm can get into my fart-filled slanket anytime.

  • Amiee

    You had me at Jon Hamm.

  • Dave

    You had ME at 30 Rock…

  • Lynny

    Any excuse to look at that man is good enough for me.

  • Kevin Feeley

    Hooray! I think you made EW’s first reference to E.L. Konigsburg! I am comforted when my newberry medal winning read-a-thon is validated in the pages and posts of EW.

    • Laura

      I’m excited that other people know about this book- I’ve mentioned it to numerous people and they all look at me as if I’m crazy (I am, but that’s besides the point). It was one of my favourites as a kid, along with Roald Dahl and John Bellairs. Can I join your read-a-thon? I know you’re reading some good stuff!

  • Madd

    Hopefully more of the bubble story line- more things he’s terrible at, etc. Maybe he’ll find out that his sister was really his mother and that Liz knew?

  • acr65

    Perhaps they’ll get together over a bowl of liz’s famous cheeze stew. ummmmm

  • catlin

    YYEEEESSSSSS more of him on NBC. I LIKE.

  • Madd

    Hopefully this will also help me with my Mad Men withdrawal. I saw my beloved Bryan Batt (SALLLL!!!) on Criminal Intent the other day, so that also helped.

  • Dory

    That’s really awesome that he is returning.
