Oprah Winfrey is said to have been in final negotiation to make a guest starring role in NBC's "30 Rock". E! broke the news that the talk show queen is close to signing a deal to appear on the hit comedy series. Greater than that, it is claimed that she has also been written into the script for its second episode.

No confirmation from both Oprah herself and NBC, but E!'s Kristin Dos Santos claimed that Oprah is slated to make a cameo in the 302 episode of "30 Rock". The episode currently is slated to be aired on Nov. 6.

Kristin, furthermore, cited what she called as "reliable insiders" as saying that Oprah would likely play herself.

Oprah is the next Hollywood celeb after Jennifer Aniston to make a guest starring role in "30 Rock". NBC has announced that the comic actress will portray the character of Claire Harper, the former roommate of Fey's character Liz Lemon, who shows up and begins to stalk Jack Donaghy, Alec Baldwin's character. The network described her role as a "free-spirited, 'Fatal Attraction' like stalker."
