“30 Rock” series finale: Top 5 musician/comedian cameos you might have missedBy Ricardo Baca | January 31st, 2013 | No Comments »
“30 Rock” comes to a stop tonight on NBC.
And looking back on seven seasons of comedy from creator/star/executive producer Tina Fey, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the laughs – many of which came from the show’s genius cameos.
Most of the cameos were established actors (James Franco, Julianne Moore). Others were politicians (Al Gore, Condoleezza Rice). Yet others were multifaceted celebrities (Oprah Winfrey, Steve Martin). And of course many were musicians and comedians (LL Cool J, Elvis Costello), which is more our speed here on Reverb.
With tonight in mind, here are our five favorite “30 Rock” cameos from artists:
5) Jon Bon Jovi
The “30 Rock” cameo: The Bon Jovi frontman was NBC’s “artist in residence” in a Valentine’s Day episode from season 4. The episode was called “Anna Howard Shaw Day,” in honor of Liz Lemon’s hatred of Valentine’s Day and her appreciation of women’s suffrage leader Anna Howard Shaw (who was born on Feb. 14.).
Hella telegenic: 9 of 10. (Just ask Ally McBeal. Jon Bon works well on a camera.)
Should have been brought back as: Another one of Tracy Jordan’s long-lost sons. “Daaaaaaaaad, it’s meeeeeeeeeee. Can I borrow some moneeeeeeeeeeey?”
