Ahhhh. This is like a soothing balm on the gaping midseason NBC wound that is the lack of Community. Kristen Schaal will join 30 Rock this season for a multi-episode arc. NBC is keeping her role a secret, but here are a few guesses as to her character’s identity:
- An enchanting love interest for Kenneth (please please please)
- The cutthroat host of a children’s puppet show that competes with TGS for network attention
- Liddy’s zany kindergarten teacher on whom Jack develops a crush (I feel like this is actually a pretty realistic guess)
- A dark horse competitor for a potential Donaghy promotion into the upper echelon of Kabletown
- The gerbil trainer Tracy Jordan hires to choreograph his all-gerbil circus
- Avery Jessup’s (Donaghy’s? Jessup-Donaghy’s?) North Korean kidnapper!
