Upcoming ‘30 Rock’ and ‘Earl’ Guest Stars

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, My Name Is Earl,

Alyssa Milano Let the fall season begin. Please? I mean, how much longer do we need to wait before our favorite shows are back in full force? Turns out, just a little bit longer. Come on, we can make it! To hold you over… a little casting news. First up, The Sopranos’ star, Edie Falco, who will be joining 30 Rock for a guest stint. What’s that you say? Yes, I haven’t talked about how much I love 30 Rock in awhile. Please, tune in if you’ve never seen it because it is fantastic. Jerry Seinfeld will be appearing in the second season premiere, so I’m sure there will be plenty of laughs. As for Falco, no details on what role she’ll play, but according to Tina Fey, “We’re thrilled to have such an amazing actress come join us. Also, a lot of guys on our crew want The Sopranos ending explained to them.” And, have you seen Fey in the new American Express ad? She is beyond adorable.

On to My Name is Earl, which boasts the addition of Who’s the Boss and Charmed star Alyssa Milano this season for at least eight episodes. She may be a love interest for Earl. While I’ve never been a Milano fan, I do have a fond recollection of her in one of those Amy Fisher movies in the early nineties (you know, “The Long Island Lolita”?). At any rate, you can catch both of these funny shows when they return on September 27th (Earl) and October 4th (30 Rock). We’re in the home stretch, folks.

Seinfeld Co-Stars Reunited on ‘New Adventures’

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, CBS,

Julia Louis-Dreyfus I don’t know about you, but watching re-runs of Seinfeld makes me wish they’d do a reunion show. I can’t wait to see Jerry Seinfeld’s guest role on 30 Rock (which, incidentally, is one of the best comedies on television)—or for that matter, his upcoming Bee Movie. Sadly, as much as I enjoyed Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Seinfeld and Watching Ellie (remember that one? few do…), The New Adventures of Old Christine has never sparked my interest. I’ve seen a handful of episodes and Louis-Dreyfus is adorable and funny, but it’s just never locked me in. So, where am I going with this post? Well, my point is that Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza on Seinfeld, will be appearing on The New Adventures of Old Christine this season. He’ll play a lizard handler (weird, huh) at a kid’s party and Christine ends up dating him. The show has a midseason return, so no telling yet when Alexander’s guest role will turn up. New Adventures is the first show of the Seinfeld cast to break the Seinfeld Curse, but it looks as though viewer numbers have slid a bit—12.5 million for the first season and 10.4 million for season two.

Seinfeld to Appear on 30 Rock

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC,

Jerry Seinfeld I’m giddy. Absolutely giddy… over the news that Jerry Seinfeld will appear on the season premiere of 30 Rock in the fall. I was already over the moon when this little engine-that-could of a show managed to beat the odds and get a renewal. Tina Fey has crafted one of the most unique comedies on television and the cast is excellent. Even Alec Baldwin’s bad voicemail etiquette couldn’t dissuade me from tuning in (although, I’m still ticked at him!). And now, I find out that Jerry Seinfeld will be making an appearance as himself. I’m a diehard Seinfeld fan and a faithful 30 Rock watcher, so this is the equivalent of a Reese’s peanut butter cup. You know—two great tastes that taste great together. So maybe my reference is obscure, but you get the picture. A union of talent that is likely to provide the recipe for comedy gold. Gold, Jerry! Gold! Get ready for the season premiere of 30 Rock on October 4th. I promise it won’t disappoint.
