Nancy Pelosi will play some comedic hardball with Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey in the series finale of TV comedy “30 Rock,” the Democratic leader in the US House of Representatives said on Friday.

The Emmy-winning show created by comedienne Fey about the day-to-day life of fictional sketch comedy show will air its final episode on Jauary 31 after seven seasons.

“I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do,” Pelosi said in a statement. “I’m flattered that they asked me to make a cameo in the series finale. I had a lot of fun.”

It will not be Pelosi’s first foray off of the television talk show circuit. She once served as a judge on an episode of Bravo’s cooking show “Top Chef.”

TV network NBC would not say what kind of role Pelosi would play on the “30 Rock” finale.

Previous US political guests on the comedy series include former Vice President Al Gore, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Actress Julianne Moore and actor-rapper Ice T are also expected to appear on the show’s final episode, according to US media reports.

“30 Rock” was inspired by Fey’s stint as head writer for “Saturday Night Live.”

Fey and her former “Saturday Night Live” co-star, Amy Poehler, will host the Golden Globe Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills on January 13.
