'30 Rock' exclusive: Tina Fey talks Matt Damon's return and Angie Jordan's reality show
Image Credit: Ali Goldstein/NBCWhen 30 Rock returns from winter hiatus Jan. 20, it’ll be in a new 10 p.m. slot, which could be good news for fans of the show’s rather unconventional tendencies. “It will be kind of exciting,” creator/star Tina Fey tells EW exclusively. “We have been wondering: Can we do even weirder things?” Weirder than Paul Reubens as an inbred Austrian prince? Weirder than Jenna dating a guy who plays her in a drag show? “We’ll try,” Fey says.
Also coming up this season: [SPOILER ALERT!!!] Matt Damon will return as Liz Lemon’s pilot boyfriend, Carol, but, alas, don’t expect him to stick around. “We are going to break up,” Fey says. “It had to happen because he has to go make movies.” Better news? Tracy may clinch a key piece of his EGOT, and we might just get to see a whole half-hour of wife Angie’s reality show, Queen of Jordan (co-starring her hairdresser, natch). “We’re hoping to, maybe, if we can get away with it, do an entire episode that’s just an episode of Queen of Jordan,” Fey says. “Now I’m just superimposing my own TV viewing habits onto 30 Rock.“
