Matt Damon to Reprise Role on 30 Rock

Matt Damon on 30 RockAccording to EW, Matt Damon will reprise his role as the love interest for Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon on 30 Rock. Don’t get too attached though. Carol and Liz will break up fairly quickly, so don’t expect him to stick around. Damon is a busy movie star, after all.

30 Rock will also be moving to 10 Eastern, 9 Central. With the later time slot, the writers plan to push the boundaries a bit more.

“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.

Hopefully 30 Rock can recapture the magic of the first couple seasons. The last couple have lacked a lot of the comedy that makes it so great (such as Tracy Jordan one-liners and Jack’s sage advice). As someone once put it, 30 Rock has turned too much into a live-action version of the comic strip Cathy over the past two seasons.
