Tina Fey Wants Justin Timberlake on '30 Rock'


Tina Fey Wants Justin Timberlake on '30 Rock'


At the 61st Emmys gala, the actress mentioned his name and minutes later the actor was approached by the writers.

It looks like a deal is brewing between Tina Fey and Justin Timberlake. The two stars, who enjoyed a shower of attention at the recent Primetime Emmy Awards, may be sharing a screen should a deal between him and the writers of "30 Rock" reach a favorable end.

To Access Hollywood, Fey expressed her interest in getting the singer-turned-actor to join the comedy. "We should track him down. He'd be good," the depicter of Liz Lemon on the series said. "I'm sure he'd totally do it - he's not busy."

When reached for a comment on the invitation, Timberlake said, "Okay, you know what's funny? The writers just walked through when I was heading back from the from taking photos, and one of the writers said, 'Hey Justin, we gotta get you on 30 Rock'." He added that he has an agent and they will see how it turns out.

"30 Rock" was a clear winner at the September 20 event, taking home 5 out of 20 nominations it was put under. The only upset was Tina Fey did not win the Best Actress in Comedy title because Toni Collette snagged it for her role on the new Showtime series "United States of Tara".

Justin Timberlake meanwhile, was a winner of Creative Arts Emmys which was held a week prior to the Primetime Emmys. His performance on "Saturday Night Live" scored Outstanding Guest Actor in Comedy Series. In fact, Fey was the one who grabbed the Actress part.

In the meantime, "30 Rock" has secured a guest appearance from Betty White who will play as herself. "We all put names in a hat, and we took a vote, if you could have one guest star for the whole season, who would it be?" Alec Baldwin said. "And Betty White was the winner!". The show is returning to NBC on October 15.
