[via press release from NBC]

EMMY AWARD WINNER JENNIFER ANISTON TO GUEST-STAR ON NBC'S EMMY-WINNING "30 ROCK"

NEW YORK � September 2, 2008 � Emmy Award winner Jennifer Aniston, ("The Break-Up," NBC's "Friends") will guest-star in one episode of NBC's critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning comedy "30 Rock" as the 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). The announcement was made by Teri Weinberg, Executive Vice President, NBC Entertainment.

"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," said Weinberg. "This promises to be a memorable, hilarious night of comedy."

"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."

After many television series guest appearances, Aniston soared to fame on NBC's mega-hit comedy "Friends," where she earned an Emmy as Outstanding Actress in a Lead Role in a Comedy Series for her performance as Rachel Green. Her television success paved the way for a feature-film career, which has included such credits as "Bruce Almighty," "Along Came Polly," "The Break-Up," "The Good Girl," "The Object of My Affection," "Friends with Money" and "Rumor Has It."

Honored with a record 17 Emmy nominations in 2008, "30 Rock" premieres on October 30 (Thursday, 9:30-10 p.m. ET).

Throughout the first and current seasons, "30 Rock" has welcomed an impressive array of guest stars, including Elaine Stritch, who garnered a 2007 Emmy award and a 2008 Emmy nomination for her performance, as well as 2008 Emmy nominees Will Arnett, Steve Buscemi, Tim Conway, Edie Falco, Carrie Fisher and Rip Torn. Other guest stars have included Jerry Seinfeld, former Vice President Al Gore, David Schwimmer, Andy Richter, Dean Winters, Gladys Knight, Meredith Vieira, Paul Reubens, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, John McEnroe, Maury Povich, Ghostface Killah, LL Cool J, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane, Molly Shannon, Chris Parnell, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis.

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as not only "the best comedy on TV this year" but "simply the best TV," the Emmy award-winning comedy "30 Rock" is told through the comedic voice of Golden Globe winner Tina Fey ("Liz Lemon") and features Golden Globe winner Alec Baldwin ("Jack Donaghy") as a top network executive and Tracy Morgan ("Tracy Jordan") as the unpredictable star of Lemon's hit variety show, "TGS with Tracy Jordan." Lemon constantly has her hands full, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life.

Also rounding out the cast are Jane Krakowski ("Jenna Maroney") as the co-star of "TGS"; Scott Adsit ("Pete Hornberger") as the variety show's producer; Jack McBrayer ("Kenneth the Page") as the over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC page; Judah Friedlander ("Frank") as the sardonic slacker on the writing staff; Katrina Bowden ("Cerie") as Lemon's young, flighty assistant; and Keith Powell ("Toofer") as the sophisticated yet sarcastic, Harvard-alum writer.

"30 Rock" has been honored on a myriad of critics' year-end Best Of 2006 and 2007 lists. The show has received a 2007 Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, the Producers Guild Awards' Danny Thomas Producer of the Year Award in Comedy Episodic Television, a Writers Guild Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and a Television Critics Association for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. Also recognized by the AFI Awards as one of 10 Most Outstanding TV Programs of the Year, "30 Rock" was honored with nominations by the People's Choice Awards for Favorite New Comedy Series. Both Fey and Baldwin received the Golden Globe, SAG and TCA Awards for their portrayals of Lemon and Donaghy respectively.

"30 Rock" is from Broadway Video & Little Stranger, Inc. in association with Universal Media Studios. The executive producers are Lorne Michaels ("Saturday Night Live"), Fey, Marci Klein ("Saturday Night Live"), David Miner ("Human Giant") and Robert Carlock ("Friends").
