It’s the in thing these days to guest star on 30 Rock. But the show won’t just take any old schmoe off the street. They’re looking strictly for A-listers. And the latest top-notch celeb to join the cast is Meryl Streep!
According to the NY Daily News, Alec Baldwin approached Streep at last Sunday night’s SAG winner and asked her to guest star on the award-winning show.
“Meryl was delighted with the idea of appearing on the show,” a SAG insider blabbed. “She said yes immediately.”
30 Rock won three awards at the 2009 SAG Awards, including Outstanding Actor Alec Baldwin, Outstanding Actress Tina Fey, and Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
So of course Meryl Streep said yes! 30 Rock the show to watch and to be watched on this season. Just this season alone, 30 Rock has had on Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Martin, and Salma Hayek. Next up is Mad Men star Jon Hamm on Feb. 5th.
We think Meryl’s tone will be the perfect accent to Alec’s dry sense of humor on the show. Can’t go wrong with two SAG winners on one episode!
