Is anyone else super excited about tonight’s return of 30 Rock? I certainly am!
To get you pumped for tonight and to, you know, jump on the Team Conan bandwagon again, here’s an awesome clip from last night’s Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien featuring none other than 30 Rock’s Kenneth the Page (Jack McBrayer):
Zing! Conan is having the time of his life sticking it to NBC with each episode. It’s nice seeing other celebs rallying in support. Reminds me of all the big-name support the writers’ strike had. Good to see folks in the entertainment industry have standards.
Now, I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again: I loved her on Seinfeld and I love her on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Julia’s got comedy chops for miles, and she’s likable as hell. Take a look at this charming broad:
Man oh man! Jack McBrayer, Kenneth the Page from 30 Rock, is quickly becoming the new man I sit around wonderin’ ’bout. Suck it, Michael Cera! What have you done for me lately (and WHAT have you been up to?!)?
McBrayer visited The Today Show this morning and blah blah was his usual congenial self. LOVE HIM!
Oh, and Meredith Viera guest stars on 30 Rock, makes out with Tracy Morgan, etc. Whatevs. More McBrayer, plz!
The janky ole MSNBC video embed code don’t work, so I’ve posted a blinkx preview below instead:
Did everybody watch 30 Rock last night? Who cares, it was a boring one. Let’s not talk about it.
You know what’s NOT boring, though? How everyone thinks Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal sounds like Kenneth from 30 Rock. Cracks me UP!
So here’s what happened. Basically, the Lou-Gov offered up the Republican response to President Obama’s address to Congress earlier this week, and was met with a kajillion and a half comparisons to Jack McBrayer, who plays Kenneth the Page on the Rock. The Internets went NUTS with clicks n comments n boop boop beep boop.
Judge for yourself! Here the first bit of Jindal’s speech:
I don’t get what the big deal is, personally. Sounds sim, I guess. MY governor, on the other hand, is a straight up DEAD RINGER for the dude from the Terminator movies.
Hyuck hyuck hyuck just a li’l California humor. We’re really laid-back here, ya know?
So anyway. Jack McBrayer went on the still-online-only Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to offer a response to the Internet response to the Republican response to the President’s address to Congress.
Check out his response to all the Internet hoo-ha:
Hilars! That guy’s schtick never gets old.
P.S. I’m kind of impressed that Jimmy Fallon (formerly of SNL, rememb?) had the savvy to address an Internet rumor on his show. Meanwhile, Leno and Letterman are all, Internet who?
