Pelosi On ’30 Rock’ Appearance: ‘I Would Do Almost Anything Tina Fey Asks Me To Do’
12:40 pm, January 4th | by Laura Donovan
In case you didn’t have a reason to watch the series finale of “30 Rock,” which will air January 31 at 8 p.m., (sad faces all around), here’s a surprising one: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi makes a cameo appearance in the final installment.
“I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do,” the California native told the Washington Post of her “30 Rock” appearance, adding that she enjoyed the gig a great deal. “I’m flattered that they asked me to make a cameo in the series finale. I had a lot of fun.”
Don’t expect Pelosi to freeze up onscreen or get awkward on us, as the former Speaker of the House has had her fair share of TV appearances from late night shows to “Top Chef.” Given the immense popularity of “30 Rock” though, there’s a lot of pressure to do well.
When it comes to political figures popping up on the sitcom, however, Pelosi is not unique. New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, former presidential candidate Al Gore, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have all been on the show before. Pelosi is different in that she’s in the final episode, always leaving a lasting impression.
