Aaron Sorkin

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is set to play himself on an upcoming episode of 30 Rock. While not much is known about the exact role he'll play, we bet there'll be a lot of fast-talking and witty repartee. That's a given, right?

As the creator of the long-gone Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, which actually premiered the same year as 30 Rock (2006, for those keeping score at home), Sorkin's no stranger to shows about late-night comedies, though that show only lasted one meager season. Perhaps he'll have better luck with the TGS crew? Who better to play the perfect foil to Jack Donaghy than a man responsible for some of cinema's snappiest dialogue, after all? The episode will air later this spring in either March or April.
