What does a “depraved mayor” do? Whatever the hell they please! But actually, “depraved Mayor” was my phrasing. What Deadline, which is reporting the story, referred to a role as was “Rob Ford-type mayor.” Meaning that he LOVES crack and speaking about cunnilingus to the media. Either way, to iterate, Alec Baldwin is mulling a return to TV comedy as such a mayor.

Either way you phrase it, count me in. And if there was any question, the city which he would govern would be New York. The Windy Apple.

Now, Baldwin has a few other competing projects, but none are locked down. And as good as he is in films like The Departed, he seemed to have found his real calling in TV, between his 30 Rock gig and SNL appearances. So NBC certainly appreciate the fiber of his fabric. So go there, Alec. Despite your differences. I mean, you’re Alec Baldwin, so you’re likely going to have differences with everyone. Might as well be super funny while you do.

Comedian/Actor Tracy Morgan, best known for his work on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, is in critical condition after a multi-car wreck on Saturday morning that killed one of his fellow passengers.

Morgan was in a limo bus leaving a comedy gig in Delaware when the bus was apparently rear-ended up a drowsy Wal-Mart truck driver, causing the bus to flip. Three passengers, including Morgan, are in critical condition, and one passenger, 63 year-old comedian James McNair, was killed in the collision.

Police have arrested the driver of the semi that hit the bus, and he’s currently being held in lieu of bail.

Morgan remains in critical condition but has demonstrated some responsiveness. More details to follow as updates come our way.

FEEL BETTER, TRACY.

Beamed to us from the same alternate universe where Eric Stoltz played Marty McFly in BTTF, comes this original, unaired 30 Rock pilot starring Rachel Dratch in the role of Jenna, before she was replaced by Jane Krakowski. The decision to recast was made when NBC decided to scale back the in-show sketches and go with a more traditional sitcom actress. But Fey wanted to keep her buddy in the mix so decided to have Dratch play a different character in each episode which is a really fun idea like when Loo-Kee would hide in the background of She-Ra: Princess of Power episodes.

Only difference is Loo-Kee didn’t get totally f*cked by the execs at Filmation.

Considering 30 Rock‘s only been off the air for about three months, it’s safe to say that Tina Fey will have a hell of a time with retirement, should that day ever come.

She’s back with Robert Carlock and former 30 Rock writer Matt Hubbard to tell the tale of an all-girls college that has just opened its doors to men for the first time.

Tina won’t be acting in this, or the other project, but her presence is like a soothing, nerdy blanket that let’s us know that these projects presumably already have the 30 Rock seal of approval.

Instead of getting a delightful flavor and punny name to match it, Ben and Jerry’s has done its part in sending 30 Rock off with a whimper, offering up Liz Lemon Greek yogurt, which also contains a blueberry and lavender swirl.

Eh.

They could have at least slapped a fun name on it like “Good God, Lemon!” or “Lemon Party,” but instead they just apathetically rolled out a character name that happened to have a fruit in the title.

Ultimately, I was hoping that they wouldn’t use the obvious Lemon connection, and go with something a little more offbeat. Like what you ask? There’s a universe of choices out there, but my suggestion is, and always will be:

Werewolf Candy Bar Mitzvah.

The 30 Rock series finale is bringing out the big guns with Ice-T(?) and Nancy Pelosi (?????), possibly to answer the “Will they or won’t they?” question we didn’t even realize we had been asking ourselves this entire time.

Nothing else is known at this time, aside from the fact that Nancy Pelosi has said that she “would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do.” Most people wouldn’t mean that literally and would draw the line somewhere before volunteering to act alongside Ice-T, but for Pelosi at least, anything means anything, so here we are.

As Ice-T’s SVU character would say…

“That’s messed up.”

Bryan Cranston, who has enjoyed appearing in most every work of television and film since making a name for himself on Breaking Bad, decided that he hasn’t crammed his fingers into the 30 Rock pie yet.

Well, that’s been fixed as he signed on to play Ron, Kenneth’s mom’s “friend” during the final season of the show. Kenneth’s mom will be played by Catherine O’Hara, so expect the interactions of these two to be WAY more interesting than what’s going on with Frank or Jenna or whoever is still on the show.

Of all the Cranston announcements that could have been issued today, this isn’t among the top 100 most promising, but it’s something, and considering Michael Clarke Duncan died this weekend, we could use the boost.

In further proving that NBC is incapable of giving us just “good news” without a “but,” NBC is in the process of ordering renewals for beloved Thursday night comedies 30 Rock, Community, and Parks and Recreation, but with fewer episodes than before. Yay?

The move is of course done as a cost-saving tactic, but also to probably clear up schedule space for new comedies like Matthew Perry’s Go On, while Whitney and Up All Night will probably not be making the cut.

Here’s where I would make a joke about NBC just being the worst, and, since their new shows are far worse than the stuff they’re cranking out currently, they should just stick with the stuff SOME people like, rather than introduce a bunch of stuff that no people like.

That’s where I would have done that.

I understand the short orders for Community and 30 Rock, but Parks and Rec has never done better, even with falling numbers for its neighboring shows.

This sounds like something that Jack Donaghy would be cooking up for Kabletown, but, alas, this premise is all too real.

In an effort to deflect allegations that country music is just for rednecks, Country Music Television is developing Redneck Island, about 12 rednecks who are placed on an island to “attempt to survive hilarious and unpredictable challenges in unique redneck fashion.”

As stupid as the premise sounds, this could be the ultimate survival show. After two painful seasons of The Walking Dead, it’s clear that redneck brothers Daryl and Merle are far better survivalists than stupid cityfolk with their liberal arts degrees and their NPR totebags and pre-school admission interviews. The Deadline piece offers some terrific other nuggets.

Did you know that Stone Cold Steve Austin has a production company? He does. And that company is named Broken Skull Ranch Prods. I’m unclear whether “Prods” is some sort of abbreviation for “Productions,” or if it’s referencing cattle prods. Either way, rednecks on an island.

At the very least, they’ll be able to finally balance out those tans.

I hope it's a female character.

The post 6 Normally-Taped Shows That Have Done Live Episodes appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Alec Baldwin let slip yesterday that 30 Rock will be airing another live episode come April 26th, with two versions for both the east coast and west coast. This was attempted by the show in season five and was met with critical acclaim and the highest ratings of the season.

While the idea of a scripted, taped show airing a live episode reeks of gimmickery, a scant 50 years ago, before taping technology existed, almost every show was done live, if for the only reason that producers had no way of memorializing a show.

In the modern age, though, there’s little need for a live show, beyond watching in the hopes that someone flubs a line or farts audibly.

Bad news. It almost never happens. As bad as TV actors can be, they’re by and large pros, so what might seem nerve wracking to the likes of us rubes is little more than a day at the office for them.

ER

The 1997 episode Ambush was performed twice, once for east coast audiences, then once again for, you guessed it, west coast audiences. The live aspect looked different and a little grittier than other taped and mastered episodes, and the difference in appearance was explained via a PBS crew that was following around the doctors of Cook County, filming a documentary.

Everyone was half-hoping, half-expecting disaster, as ER was regarded a show that demanded a hefty amount of technical jargon from their actors, so the constant barking of incubations, CTs, and anaphylactic shock led some to believe that these two airings could be a disaster. But, dammit, they got it right, much to the chagrin of all the Statlers and Waldorfs in the audience.

The Drew Carey Show

The fact that this 90’s sitcom went live should come as no surprise, as half the actors on it cut their teeth on the Brit-import improv show Whose Line Is It, Anyway? What was surprising, and made this different than the more rote “livenings” of many other scripted, taped shows, is that there were various buzzwords and cues that forced the cast to improvise, which guaranteed that the airings were markedly different from one another.

While many attempt the live show, few screw it up, or really leverage the concept to give the episode any novelty. Adding improv elements may have pulled the audience out of the universe of The Drew Carey Show, but who really wants to be in the universe of The Drew Carey Show?

Gross.

The post 6 Recent Instances Of NBC Screwing The Metaphorical Pooch appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
With news of Jenny McCarthy-hosted reality shows and remake after remake after adaptation after reboot, NBC certainly has placed a very nice “kick me” sign on its own back. That said, it’s a little too fashionable and easy to just say “NBC sucks,” which is why we have chosen to say, “Here’s why NBC sucks.” It’s a much more thoughtful approach to the whole affair.

Lucky for me, the writer, NBC has given us a very long list of reasons why it sucks over the past six months, so the only hard part was culling them down. They’ve done a very few things right over the past couple months, too, but we’ll save that for another article that I’ll never write.

So here’s why NBC has been sucking.

Shelving Community

Quickly: I am not a Community fan. I think the show is incredibly thoughtful and clever, but it spends so much time being those things that I don’t care at all what happens to the characters. However, I think suspending the one NBC show with a rabid, passionate fan base at a time when the network has almost nothing going for it is a mistake.

The show got terrible ratings, but at least people would talk about it. It gave NBC a presence on the Internet. You think the people that are watching Fear Factor are talking about that show on the Internet? Those people can’t even afford computers.

The show is one of the few good things that anyone says about NBC, so the network should take the hit, knowing that they’re making at least some fans and many critics happy.

The Playboy Club

This show was just ill-advised and lazy. It was too risqué for middle America (which is dumb, but true), and too pedestrian for the Mad Men crowd, so the show was openly mocked and ignored by both sides, getting the axe after two episodes, despite being NBC’s most-hyped new show.

Whatever the opposite of “taking a calculated risk” is, that’s what The Playboy Club was.

“Giving a thoughtless certainty?”

Tits or GTFO.

Tracy Morgan collapsed last night at Sundance while collecting his honor from the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards for his achievements in the field of threatening to impregnate. Eyewitnesses report that Morgan appeared excessively intoxicated before falling to the stage. But those close to him swear that he always seems excessively intoxicated.

After the episode, Morgan was taken away by ambulance to the Park City Medical Center, where tests confirmed no sign of drugs or alcohol in his system. This data has rocked the scientific community.

The official word from his publicist is that Morgan suffered “from a combination of exhaustion and altitude.” Exhaustion? It’s not like he actually climbed the mountain. And I doubt he was up late catching up on Downton Abbey.  (TMZ)

The post ’30 Rock’ Is Doing Its Best In Dealing With This Kim Jong Il Business appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Several weeks ago, upon news of Kim Jong Il’s death, a nervous world cried out, “But what of 30 Rock‘s arbitrary storyline of Avery Jessup’s kidnapping? What of that?”

After some time spent picking up the pieces, 30 Rock has composed itself and is ready to issue a response. Here is that response from producer to Us Weekly (!)Robert Carlock:

“We sort of went back to the script because we’d already shot eight or nine episodes, and we realized that luckily we hadn’t referred to Kim Jong-Il by name yet — just to North Korea in general,” Carlock said. “We can’t go back and address the changes there, but the fun puzzle is turning around and trying to figure out how to get her out of there and how to continue things.”

That IS a fun puzzle, Mr. Carlock!

One red flag here is that the writers hadn’t abandoned this plotline eight episodes into the show. Yuck. How long were they planning on running with this? Of course, this is a show that has devolved the Kenneth character from cute country rube to depraved and devil-worshipping sheep banger, so who knows, really?

The post 7 Mostly-Dumb Instances Of White Actors Rapping appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
It’s one thing to lean on something uncharacteristic for comedy. It plays against type, serves as a shock to the viewer, and often offers an amusing juxtaposition. Unless of course, you’re having a white actor bust into a rap for the sake of all the 37 year-old receptionists that will reflexively squawk, “I can’t believe they went there!” That’s not funny. That’s not even humor. Nonetheless, films and TV have long been in the business of “surprising” audiences with familiar stuff they’ve seen before, and this “rapping cracker” business has become old hat.

Here are a few of the most glaring instances. A few work on a deeper level, but most don’t. If any of these scenes are personal favorites of yours, I’m sorry. Sorry you have bad taste.

Ok. The 30 Rock one is pretty damn funny.

Chris Cooper – The Muppets

Sadly, no video is available for this one yet, but Chris Cooper, who plays a humorless oilman in the puppet film, breaks into a rap entitled “Let’s Talk About Me.” There are video vixens, crazy-phresh lyrics, and, most importantly…CHRIS COOPER RAPPING. While it’s certainly an irreverent scene by Muppet standards, the oddness of it all works. It’s weird, but not in a desperate or incomprehensible fashion. It’s just pretty interesting.

I thought about tagging this with a “spoiler alert,” but figured those diehard Muppet fans that would get upset by this have all seen the movie by now. If that’s not the case, I’m sorry I ruined his ironic rap.

Ellen Dow – The Wedding Singer

Sure, it’s Nazi propaganda, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a good film. While there was certainly enough action going on during the premiere of the film, part of me wanted everyone to just chill out for a few minutes so that I could watch this sniper pick people off. The film-within-a-film was directed by Tarantino cohort Eli Roth, so it’s nice to see he can branch out beyond Hostel.

Click the trailer and tell me you wouldn’t watch this film all day long.

Simple JackTropic Thunder

Here we see Ben Stiller’s character coming dangerously close to going “full retard” with Simple Jack, a film about a developmentally disabled man-child who works on a farm and talks to animals. My guess is that if this movie were to be released in the next couple months, it would get a nod for Best Picture, especially in light of the expanded field.

And the posters would use a still of Simple Jack looking up towards the sky, blowing a dandelion, like retarded people so often do.

The post Lorne Michaels Sees More ’30 Rock’ With Or Without Alec Baldwin appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Lorne Michaels was on the Television Critics Association panel for the new NBC comedy Up All Night. After the panel when the press gaggled around him, he spoke about his thoughts and hopes for 30 Rock. With contracts coming up at the end of season six, and stars like Alec Baldwin threatening retirement, Michaels still sees 30 rockin’ along.

“Listen, you can’t imagine doing the show without Alec but I couldn’t imagine doing the show without Chevy either and we’re still on the air,” Michaels said, invoking Chase’s departure from SNL. “I would hope that we would never have to go on without him but we’re going to keep doing the show.”

Tina Fey is at home this summer expecting a baby. Then she’s ready to go back to work too. “Right now she’s having a baby but I know that she’s completely committed to the show, as are a lot of people who work there. Alec is a huge part of it. It’s a great group. I think it still has a lot of vitality and life in it. We’re all pretty much determined to keep it going, and I’m hopeful.”

Michaels also spoke out about 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan’s controversial anti-gay rant and how it might affect his return to the show. “We haven’t started yet but obviously everyone has been talking. I think he totally regretted it, he apologized for it. I think it was a thoughtless thing to say but it was the middle of a concert and he was trying to be provocative I think. It just blew up and I think he confronted it and dealt with it. I know what kind of man he is and he’s not a hateful person in any way, shape or form. What he said was stupid and there’s no justification for it, I’m just saying I don’t think it came from any real thought really.”

The subsequent Tracy Morgan controversy, about a routine on the mentally challenged, made less waves. “I think that’s from his act from 15 years ago. It was in his HBO special. When you scrutinize anybody’s comedy, it’s not the criteria you should really judge it by. He’s not being taught in schools.”

Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: our Gif Recap of last night’s episode of “30 Rock,” which marked the end of the fifth season. All things considered, I think they went out on a high note.

Liz Lemon is visiting Dr. Spaceman to treat some stress-related cold sores. He assures her that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about (he gets them from hookers all the time) and offers her some R&R (Rum and Ritalin) for the stress. However, Liz only wants to treat the cold sores. She feels her stress is under control now that she’s booked a house in the Hamptons for the summe break.

Meanwhile, the others are making their summer plans. Jack is trying to figure out what to do with himself now that his wife has been kidnapped by North Koreans, the writers are engaged in a final melee battle on their PlayStation, and Jenna is about to land a big advertising deal with the Wool Council, who she impressed with a previous performance at the Wool Bowl.

Liz pays a fine she owes to the city for a hate crime she committed against a Jewish tree, and then heads for the Hamptons. Once there, all is going according to plan, until Tracy shows up and reveals that he’s purchased the homes around Liz’s guest house and is treating it like his own private playground.

Tired from a long day of golf, Tracy decides to take a nap on Liz’s porch. He has to rest up for his big night of firing guns into the air. Before he nods off, he mentions that he and Liz will be seeing each other a lot over the summer. He also warns her that he tends to scream in his sleep, but that she should not wake him no matter what, or he will attack.

Back in New York, Jenna is about to finalize her deal with the Wool Council, when the subject of her personal life brings the meeting to a halt. They are concerned that her cross-dressing boyfriend will sully wool’s conservative image. But after a stirring song, the head of the council agrees to give Paul a chance, and sets up a double date with Jenna.

Meanwhile, Jack is copping with the loss of his wife by replacing her with Kenneth. What starts as a simple act of kindness turns into an obsession when Jack forces him, the hapless page, to come over for dinner night after night. Jack’s assistant, Jonathan, ends up getting stuck with Kenneth’s duties, and is forced to call in his family for help.

Later, Liz confronts Tracy about his behavior, and tells him that she doesn’t want him to ruin her relaxing summer. But when Tracy threatens to cause trouble on set next season, Liz is forced to back down.

Jenna and Paul are hosting the president of the Wool Council and his wife. Although it is hard for Paul to hide who he is, the meal is going well. But when Jenna’s “sitter” shows up (a dwarf the couple pays to sit on them) he is forced to pretend that sexual fetishes disgust him.

Kenneth is having problems of his own, as Jack is now forcing him to completely take on the role of his missing wife.

After being forced to sleep over, Kenneth draws the line, and while impersonating Jack’s wife, tells him to stop feeling sorry for himself and move on. The speech snaps Jack back to reality, and Kenneth is free to go.

After the dinner with the Wool Council president, Jenna and Paul decide that they must be true to themselves. At the photo shoot, they publicly make out while dressed in drag, Wool Council be damned.

After much deliberation, Liz has a revelation, and decides not to pay her ticket for the hate crime, which results in mandatory community service. She finds the work relaxing, and is even picking up Spanish from some of her fellow trash pickers. Jack happens upon her in the park, just as Jenna and Paul are out for a walk. Tracy, who hit a golf ball onto the back of a truck and refuses to take a mulligan, is also passing through the park as he plays his way back to the Hamptons.

The group stops to admire Jack’s baby, while Kenneth watches from afar via telescope. In a “Lost”-like ending, he screams to an unseen “Jacob” that he “needs more time.” With that, the story ends, to be continued in season six.

What did you think of the way things ended? Is the show still going strong, or has the quality started to drop off?

NBC apparently isn’t content to have “30 Rock” simply be a live-action cartoon – they want to turn it into a literal cartoon as well. And lucky you, you can watch it right here. This cartoon, which is the first in a planned series of three, features Alex Baldwin as the Bugs Bunny to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams’ Elmer Fudd.

An animated version of”30 Rock” is making me wonder about other TV possibilities – a cartoon short based on”Boardwalk Empire,” perhaps. Or maybe a live-action “Archer.” These are all great ideas, I hope I get paid when they happen. (Vulture)

Katrina Bowen is best known as Cerie on NBC’s “30 Rock.” She’s also appeared in Sex Drive, and will be starring in your dreams for the next undetermined amount of time. I mean, look at her! Yeesh. That’s a human, apparently. Here she is in her own home for a photo shoot in this month’s Esquire for their Sexiest Woman Alive issue. So, she lives in a house, like a person? I guess the facts are all checking out, but I’m still skeptical. Too perfect!  (Esquire)

UPDATE: Oh, good. Baldwin was misinformed and they do plan to run”30 Rock” into the ground after all. Phew.

Alec Baldwin dropped a bomb last night that is sure to upset “30 Rock” fans. His brother Stephen was an excellent dancer back in high school. Oh yeah, also next season of “30 Rock” will be the show’s last.

“I will tell you one thing,” he told Vulture. “And that is our show next year is our last year of the show. Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She’s going to be the next Elaine May. She’ll be great.”

If true, that’s sad to hear. You guys go cry and work on your Tracy Jordan requiems while I go figure out just who the hell Elaine May was.

Tom Hanks Guest Stars On ’30 Rock’ As… Someone Nice? http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/nice-guy-tom-hanks-gets-nice-guest-spot-on-nice-show-30-rock/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/nice-guy-tom-hanks-gets-nice-guest-spot-on-nice-show-30-rock/#comments Sat, 26 Mar 2011 05:49:59 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203874 Hanks will make his glorious return to sitcomdom on an upcoming episode of "30 Rock." I'm starting to get "Bosom Buddies" flashbacks.

The post Tom Hanks Guest Stars On ’30 Rock’ As… Someone Nice? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It’s easy to forget that Tom Hanks started out on TV, dressing up like a woman to fool a hotel of ladies in “Bosom Buddies.” Now he’s closely associated with realistic war dramas, intense space dramas and talking to volleyballs. Oh, and Academy Awards. So it’s safe to say, he’s come a long way since the 80s.

However, Hanks will make his glorious return to sitcomdom on an upcoming episode of NBC’s “30 Rock.” There’s no information yet on who the Nicest Guy In The Universe will play in Tina Fey‘s much-lauded, much-ratings-challenged show – only that the star recently tweeted, “I’m on’30 Rock‘!” That seems to be a good indication that he will, indeed, be on “30 Rock.”

Since the show-within-a-show is “The Girlie Show,” maybe Hanks wants to return to his cross-dressing roots? But if his character was trying to pass as a chick, wouldn’t he be outed by such highly-observant, intellectual heavyweights like Tracy and Jenna? Yeah, I guess it could be the Susan B. Anthony Hotel all over again. (Hollywood Reporter)

30 Rock” has quickly earned a reputation as a show that is totally unafraid of the celebrity cameo: Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Bon Jovi, and even Oprah have walked the hallowed halls of a studio set that looks like 30 Rockefeller Center. Now, Aaron Sorkin, the screenwriter most recently of The Social Network is joining the “30 Rock” Celebrity Cameo Club, with his episode set to be shown on NBC in March or April. Not much in the way of details, although I would guess there’s going to be a lot of jokes about the “Sorkin style” (walk and talks, and all that) on his various TV shows over the years, and also about the similarities between “30 Rock” and Sorkin’s “Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip.” Or maybe a scene in which Tracy Morgan shouts “you can’t handle the truth!” (via The Wrap)

The 2011 Writers Guild Award winners are a lot of familiar names and faces. The WGAs cover 3 areas, 2 of which I care about: Movies, TV, and video games. Here’s a list of the winners that have been announced so far (video games and honorary awards excluded because I ain’t no nerd):

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY  Inception, Written by Christopher Nolan; Warner Bros.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY   The Social Network, Screenplay by Aaron Sorkin; Based on the book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich; Sony Pictures

DRAMA SERIES  ”Mad Men,” Written by Jonathan Abrahams, Lisa Albert, Keith Huff, Jonathan Igla, Andre Jacquemetton, Maria Jacquemetton, Brett Johnson, Janet Leahy, Erin Levy, Tracy McMillan, Dahvi Waller, Matthew Weiner; AMC

TV EPISODIC DRAMA – any length – one airing time  “The Chrysanthemum and the Sword” (“Mad Men“), Written by Erin Levy; AMC

TV COMEDY SERIES ”Modern Family,” Written by Jerry Collins Paul Corrigan, Alex Herschlag, Abraham Higginbotham, Elaine Ko, Joe Lawson, Steven Levitan, Christopher Lloyd, Dan O’Shannon, Jeffrey Richman, Brad Walsh, Ilana Wernick, Bill Wrubel, Danny Zuker; ABC

TV EPISODIC COMEDY – any length – one airing time  “When It Rains, It Pours” “30 Rock“), Written by Robert Carlock; NBC

The most interesting thing here is Christopher Nolan getting an award for Inception, after what many perceived as a snub when the Oscar nominees were announced. And the fact that “Mad Men” took both the overall series category AND the episodic category just goes to show that it’s the best show on TV.

Here are some more winners, and you can see a complete list at Deadline.

COMEDY / VARIETY – (INCLUDING TALK) SERIES

Elizabeth Banks brings a unique brand of funny to her comedic roles. She tends to be the approachable hot chick — the girl who never takes herself to seriously and is, in fact, averse to the idea of seriousness as a whole. Seeing her play the uber-ambitious media queen Avery Jessup on “30 Rock” gives us an idea of how far she can stretch her comedy chops. Jessup is all business all the time, but in a way that jives well with the general atmosphere of hilarious absurdity that characterizes the show. It’s a glimpse at Banks’ satirical side. She lampoons corporate media, news anchors, ladder-climbing, and attractive people all at the same time, and she does it like a pro. Watch her and the rest of the”30 Rock” gang tonight on NBC.

As a comic actor, I love watching Alec Baldwin on “SNL” and”30 Rock.” As a liberal political spokesman, I think Team America summed up my opinion nicely. Still, there are those who will pay top dollar for smug liberal talking hotheads, which is why it makes sense that Baldwin is likely MSNBC‘s #1 choice to fill in for recently departed anchor Keith Olbermann.

An unnamed network insider has been quoted as saying, “[Baldwin is] already part of the NBC family, has a huge fan base and is very respected for his long term passions for politics.” I’ve heard time and again that Alec Baldwin is ready to retire from acting, and his outspoken passion for touchy-feely liberalism makes this job as good as his. Battling idiots like Glenn Beck on TV would be a good stepping stone to battling idiots like Sarah Palin in actual politics.

That said, I still think he should stick to selling microwaves. (PopEater)

Chloe Moretz, the 13 year old breakout star of buzz movies like Kick Ass and Let Me In, has been tweeting up a storm (@chloegmoretz) about all manner of things, most recently that she’s in New York. Why is she in New York, you ask? To shoot an episode of NBC’s”30 Rock!” This is good news for people who like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cheddar cheese and pretzel Combos, and the Run DMC/Aerosmith collabo “Walk This Way.” Moretz was by FAR the best thing about Kick Ass, and “30 Rock” is all that is right with single camera sitcoms, so this appears to be a match made in showbiz heaven. There are no details on her role on the show yet, but one could speculate that she plays a gun toting vampire who murders everyone that works at the fictional sketch show “TGS.”   (Vulture)

Enjoy your water, show off!

Celebrities make me sick. Their decadence knows no bounds. For example, take “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan. He wasn’t content to drive around in fancy cars and date supermodels. No, he felt the need to go and get himself a fancy new kidney.

Tracy Morgan is recovering from a kidney transplant in a New York-area hospital. The comedian, who suffers from diabetes, underwent a successful operation around December 10. Amazingly, because a kidney transplant sounds like a big deal to us, Morgan is expected to get back to work after the holidays and only miss filming two episodes on 30 Rock.

So while most Americans are struggling to make ends meet this holiday season, Morgan is out there buying new organs. Typical Hollywood. (Reuters via Vulture)
