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.
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.
