The strength of TV nostalgia these days has brought back series, rekindled stars, and reunited the cast of 30 Rock before the show has even left the airwaves.
The long-running NBC comedy has two episodes left in its seven-season run, and both to promote the final installments and look back on their Emmy-winning glory days, star/creator Tina Fey‘s crew assembled for a special edition of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.
STORY: ’30 Rock’ Finale to Feature Nancy Pelosi, Salma Hayek
Along with Fey were co-stars Alec Baldwin, Jack McBrayer, Jane Krakowski and Tracy Morgan, assembled across the stage in a special format host Jimmy Fallon likened to an Oprah Winfrey special. Throughout the evening, the cast discussed how the show came together (Fey initially pitched it as a story about a news producer and a conservative anchor); Morgan’s singing skills (which were put on display); and other backstage sagas.
Among the highlights: Morgan asserting that he is pregnant with Baldwin’s child, McBrayer doing a pitch-perfect Morgan impression, cracks at NBC’s expense, highlight reels and live episode breakdowns.
Also, in a bit of irony, this show actually saw the cast in the 30 Rock building; usually, they filmed in Queens.
