Tina Fey was hoping to get a cameo from the former U.S. president but his people rejected the idea before it was even projected to him.
Tina Fey hoped to land a cameo appearance from Bill Clinton in an upcoming episode of "30 Rock" - but the former U.S. President's advisers rejected the part before offering it to their boss. The funnywoman reportedly wrote to Clinton's representative Doug Band asking if the ex-politician would consider joining the cast of the hit TV show for the 100th episode, which is due to air next month.
"They hoped he would appear next week to shoot the episode. They included him on the call list, but it didn't happen," a source tells the New York Post gossip column Page Six. But Clinton's camp turned down the slot, and a spokesperson has now confirmed the former world leader wasn't even told about the offer.
A rep tells NY Post, "The request was made and immediately denied without asking him."
