30 Rock will not break its tradition of big-name guest stars when it rides off into the sunset this month.

A NBC rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appears in the comedy's swan song, as first reported by The Washington Post.

There were no other details about who the California rep might play, but it's a fair assumption that it will be herself -- in the same fashion as fellow politicos and 30 Rock guests Al Gore, Condoleezza Rice and Michael Bloomberg.

And while she might be a stranger to acting, Pelosi is a frequent guest of the tube. She taped an episode of Top Chef in 2010 and has made appearances on most late-night and daytime talkers.

Speaking about her 30 Rock gig to the Post, Pelosi said, "I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do.”

The final episode of 30 Rock, which airs Jan. 31, wrapped filming just before Christmas. Pelosi joins Ice-T as the only announced guest stars for the finale.
