Cheyenne Jackson: Rumored for Role on 30 Rock

by at . Comments

Might Jenna Maroney soon fall for a Broadway star?

Earlier this week, Tina Fey revealed that Jane Krakowski's character would get a love interest on the new season of 30 Rock, as the show's head writer said a "wonderful actor" was about to be locked into the role.

While he's not well known outside Broadway, Cheyenne Jackson certainly fits that description.

E! News reports that the thespian is in talks to join the sitcom's cast in a recurring role, although a rep for NBC says: "The show is not commenting on any castings. Sorry about that."

Jackson has played key parts in well-reviewed plays such as Xanadu and All Shook Up. He'll next take on the lead role in an anticpiated production of Finian's Rainbow.

He sings. Jenna sings. Seems like a match made in (hopefully hilarious) heaven to us!
