That Jack Donaghy is the best gift giver in the world. You get him a $95 bottle of olive oil; he gets you a job saving lives aboard an intergalactic starship. 30 Rock’s Maulik Pancholy, best known as Jack’s obsessively devoted office assistant Jonathan, has reportedly joined CBS All Access’s upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery as the show’s chief medical officer Dr. Nambue, the modern equivalent of the USS Enterprise’s Dr. Bones McCoy. Pancholy joins previously announced cast members Michelle Yeoh, Sonequa Martin-Green, and James Frain alongside new officers Sam Vartholomeos and The Inspectors’ Terry Serpico. CBS All Access has pushed back the show, which does not currently have a release date, several times, but hopefully it’s a problem that will be resolved soon. Unless Liz Lemon somehow dropped her Sabor De Soledad into the fusion reactor, which she absolutely would. God, she is the worst.
