Condoleezza Rice to visit '30 Rock': Is Jack Donaghy over her?

Al Gore visited 30 Rock to save the whales. Jerry Seinfeld returned to NBC to thwart Jack Donaghy’s Seinfeld-ization of the network, and Oprah was a figment of Liz Lemon’s pill-fueled hallucination. But Lemon can now expect a celebrity cameo that might have real consequences. Promoting her comic memoir, Bossypants, on the Leonard Lopate radio show, Tina Fey spilled the news, “I’m going to make an executive decision that I’m allowed to talk about this. We have Condoleezza Rice coming up in a couple of weeks.”

Yes, Rice was George Bush’s national security advisor and secretary of state, but she was also Jack Donaghy’s luh-vuh! They parted ways after a jealous Donaghy was bothered by her flirtations with Russian president Vladimir Putin. Will the surprise return of his “neocon inamorata” rattle Donaghy’s stable relationship with Avery (Elizabeth Banks), the mother of his daughter?

I hope Rice is game to play herself the way Donaghy and the writers described her — there may have been something in there about phone sex — rather than a token appearance playing the piano. How bold a cameo can we honestly expect?

  • Ap

    It’s amazing how some politicians seem more likeable when they are no longer in politics.

  • leslie

    this should be good! can’t wait to see it, i loved when they put that little mention of a relationship between the two in the show.

  • Sally

    Sounds awesome!

  • James

    How does 30 Rock keep landing big name politicians for cameo roles? Is it very popular among politicians?

  • James

    There has never been a not bold cameo on this show, so I’m sure it will be awesome.

  • Jolie

    This is how America rewards its WAR CRIMINALS.

  • Jessica

    Yes, Jolie it is. America gets to decide who the producers and writers of this show invite to appear. Didn’t you get to vote for it? Maybe you were sick that day.

    Love how Alec is so vocally liberal but Jack is ultra conservative. This ought to be a great episode.

  • Ed

    If it’s half as funny as the Al Gore cameos, it will be HYSTERICAL. And given the backstory for Jack and Condoleeza, I bet it will be!

  • will g alvira

    I hope Alec Baldwin tells C Rice that she’s a freaking traitor to the United States , the troops , and all patriotic Americans like A Baldwin .

    Usually you have to be pretty smart to be a 33 year old CEO. “33 years old CEO” is pretty awful grammar
    And if you are such a busy, successful CEO, why are you spending time commenting on Entertainment Weekly on a Friday NIght???
