We're only a few months away from the premiere of 30 Rock's sixth season, which explains why the internet is brimming with news about it. Looks like stars are lining up to make their appearance on the show, and yes, we're definitely grateful (not to mention very, very excited) for that.
First up is Boss
actor Kelsey Grammer. According to TV Guide
, his return to the show will mark the return of the Best Friends Gang. We bet Jenna and Kenneth are screaming their pants off with joy already.
Speaking of pants, Grammer reveals this little detail about his appearance: "It's the first time in history I pull a guy's pants off." Hmm, interesting. Any idea whose pants they are?
Marsden talked to The Huffington Post
about his role without really revealing much. "I can't tell you anything. I am doing a six-episode stint on the show, kind of like what Matt Damon did last year."
Well, Matt Damon's character, the pilot Carol Burnett, dated Liz. She could be looking for someone new as season 6 kicks off, right? And who else fits the bill?
Another star coming to 30 Rock
is pro wrestler Mick Foley. According to his Twitter page
, he just shot his scene and even got an on-screen kiss. From whom? We'll find out soon enough.
Last but not least on our list: Entertainment Weekly
reports that actress Mary Steenburgen will be portraying a character named Charlotte. Finally! Details! She's the "highly spirited and attractive" mom of Avery, which of course means she'll be clashing with Jack.
NBC has yet to reveal 30 Rock's premiere date, but expect the gang to return early next year.
