Aniston returning to NBC – for a day


Reprising the glory days when “Friends” helped make NBC the #1 network, Jennifer Aniston will guest-star in one episode of the NBC comedy "30 Rock." She will play free-spirited, "Fatal Attraction"-like stalker Claire Harper, Liz Lemon’s (Tina Fey) former roommate from Chicago who randomly shows up in New York and attaches herself to Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin). NBC did not say when the episode with Aniston will air.

"What a thrill to have Jennifer back on NBC on a Thursday night. She is the perfect comedic talent to work with the Emmy-winning ’30 Rock’ cast. This promises to be a memorable, hilarious night of comedy," said Teri Weinberg, Executive Vice President, NBC Entertainment.

"Jennifer is not only incredibly lovely to have around, she also has what the young people would call ‘mad skills.’ We’re very excited that she’s joining us," said Tina Fey, creator, executive producer and star of 30 Rock.

30 Rock premieres its new season on October 30 (Thursday, 9:30-10 p.m. ET), but the date for airing of the episode with Aniston has yet to be announced.

30 Rock is from Broadway Video & Little Stranger, Inc. in association with Universal Media Studios. The executive producers are Lorne Michaels, Fey, Marci Klein, David Miner and Robert Carlock.
