The last two episodes of the 7th and final season of 30 Rock air tonight. As Liz Lemon and the gang prepare to say goodbye to their on-screen show, TGS, which was cancelled this season, the real life stars prepare to head back to into the unemployment line. Some already have other projects lined up and some are waiting for their next big break. Here’s a look at the new ventures for the cast of 30 Rock.
Tina Fey – Played Liz Lemon. Fey is the toast of the town. She recently co-hosted the Golden Globes along with fellow Saturday Night Live alum, Amy Poehler and brought the house down with her hilarious one-liners and light-hearted, sarcastic jabs. She has a new comedy with Paul Rudd coming out called Admission. It’s about a Princeton admissions officer on the verge of a promotion of a lifetime until her long lost son that she gave up for adoption reappears in her life. The film releases March 22. Fey is currently on pre-production on the Muppets II due out in 2014.
Alec Baldwin – Plays Jack Donaghy. 30 Rock has re-established the Baldwin brother has charming again and a slew of films and appearances have come rolling his way. He’s completed production on yet another Woody Allen film, called Blue Jasmine. There is no official release date yet but he does appear in a more recent film as well. Ameriqua is the first from another family dynasty, the Kennedys. Bobby Kennedy III and Robert F. Kennedy III both star in the film about a lazy college grad whose parents cut him off spurring a trip to Italy where he really learns how to live. The film is set to release February 28.
Tracey Morgan – Plays Tracey Jordan. Morgan is a comedian first and foremost so it makes sense that his next venture would be another comedy ironically reteaming him with his 30 Rock co-star James Marsden. Marsden plays Lemon’s on-screen husband. Nailed also stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel as the lead. There is no official release date for the film yet.
Jane Krakowski – Plays Jenna Malroney. Krakowski has been acting since 1983 and a veteran of the stage and screen. While she doesn’t have anything currently lined up after 30 Rock ends, it’s a safe bet she’ll find another show. She was great on Ally McBeal also with James Marsden, so I’m sure she’ll be on her feet in no time. If all else fails, she could always go to Modern Family and get that job that Jesse Tyler Ferguson offered at the SAG Awards.
Jack McBrayer – Plays Kenneth Parcell. McBrayer’s character on 30 Rock just got a huge promotion from page to head of NBC but how did his off-screen persona fair? Well, McBrayer is currently working on a animated television show called Wander Over Yonder. He voices the lead character, Wander who travels the universe with trusty steed Sylva helping people and staving off his nemesis, Lord Hater. The show is set to air on the Disney Channel sometime in 2013.
The last two episodes of 30 Rock, “Hogcock!” and “The Last Lunch”, air tonight on NBC at 8/7 central.
