We've never found much of what Josh Hartnett does particularly funny, with the possible exception of the scraggly 'stache that he's been sporting unironically for years. So how will the stiff-as-a-board actor fare when cast opposite the likes of Tina Fey and the rest of her comedically blessed cohorts on 30 Rock? OK! is reporting that Hartnett recently read for a part on the Emmy-winning laughfest as Fey's next love interest, a role that may last four to six episodes. And while this latest bit of stunt casting would be a major boost to Josh's embarrassing-of-late resume, the Emmy-winning show hardly needs a swarthy guest star to save it from sinking. So what does the much cleverer than us Tina Fey have up her sleeve?
While we don't have a winged woman sitting on our mantel, we do know one thing that Emmy winner Tina Fey knows: Hartnett is hot, no matter how humorous his facial hair. While SNL's Jason Sudeikis was suitably hunky in his guest starring spot as former Liz Lemon steady, he just can't compare in the looks department to our man Trip Fontaine. Which brings up something else we and Tina both know: the show's current cast features nary a bit of eye candy for the ladies. Katrina Bowden's short-skirted Cerie may help pull in the non-thinking male demo, but unless you've got a thing for walrus types, the pickings are slim for us girls. Which is why we applaud Tina Fey for looking out for the best interests of Liz Lemon and 30 Rock's female audience. Bonus points if he actually turns out to be good!
