Nancy Pelosi to guest star in '30 Rock's' finale

After fellow NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation" nabbed Vice President Joe Biden for a guest spot, "30 Rock" has added some political power of its own to its series finale later this month.

'30 Rock' cast reminisces at finale wrap party

According to The Washington Post, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is going to guest star on the sitcom in its final episode.

Pelosi told The Washington Post that she agreed to the role because, like most of us, she's under "30 Rock" creator Tina Fey's spell.

"I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do," Pelosi said in a statement, adding that she had a lot of fun taping her cameo.

The network hasn't given details on her role, but it's presumed that Pelosi (as Biden did on "Parks and Rec") would play herself. It'll be Pelosi's first time giving scripted TV a try, but she's not a newbie to primetime TV. She's previously appeared as a guest judge on "Top Chef."

"30 Rock's" series finale will air at 8 p.m. on January 31 as a special one-hour episode.

    Perfect pairing – Pelosi and Baldwin. Lets make a "finale" of both of them.

    both of these bats need to leave the public eye. I've got champagne in the fridge waiting for celebration the day that pelosi retires. tina fey is not funny, but politically motivated to antagonize Republicans, so she gets the green light from Hollywood. She's a troll, and really to say Palin looks like her insults the heck out of the Mama Grizzly. At least Palin succeeds on her own merit. You can't say that for either of these bats....

    She reminds me of Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter – she needs to be reminded – "I must not tel lies..." as she's taken off by the centaurs.

    Under Tina's spell eh? Just like how she's under the spell of every liberal special interest group I guess. Maybe we can get Tina to ask her to jump off a cliff.
