It is already old news that a lot of big stars are gracing the set of 30 Rock
for this season. Last episode alone, Liz (Tina Fey
) found herself sitting beside Oprah Winfrey on her flight back to New York from Chicago. For tonight's episode, it is Friends
star and former Mrs. Brad Pitt Jennifer Aniston
who will make an appearance on the critically acclaimed series.
More than that, Aniston reportedly wowed the cast and crew of 30 Rock
so much that the top guns at NBC are considering asking her to return for more episodes. Regular cast member Jane Krakowski
tells Ok! magazine, "We'd love to have her."
On the episode, Aniston plays Claire Harper, Liz's former roommate from Chicago who comes in for a visit. Some complications arise when she develops an eerie crush on Jack (Alec Baldwin
). The word stalker comes to mind. In one scene, she is seen breaking into Jack's house dressed as a sexy French maid to tempt Jack while he's on the phone with Liz. In another, she gatecrashes a party and breaks into a song for Jack, introduces herself as Esmeralda Fitzmonster, Jack's “life coach” who is just trying to be “fun and spontaneous.” Meanwhile, Kenneth is not exactly pleased with the new page uniforms, so Tracy tries to cheer him up with Night Court
cast members Harry Anderson, Markie Post, and Charlie Robinson.
This episode of 30 Rock
marks Aniston's return to the small screen save for an appearance on an episode of Friends
co-star Courteney Cox's cable show Dirt
. It had been four years since the hit comedy series Friends
went off air. Since then, Aniston had been busy making mostly movies, such as Along Came Polly
, Rumor Has It
, and The Break-Up
Catch 30 Rock
tonight on NBC.
