Fresh from an appearance in the Jan./Feb. issue of the Gazette, Elizabeth Banks C’96 will guest star on the Valentine’s Day episode of NBC’s 30 Rock tomorrow (Thurs., Feb. 11). She’ll play Avery Jessup, a CNBC talk-show host and the newest love interest of Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin).
Word is she’ll appear as Jessup in “at least four episodes.”
Banks recently guest starred on the ABC sit-com Modern Family, and is also a lead in The Details–an upcoming dark comedy ranked #35 of the Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2010. As she told Gazette contributor Caroline Tiger C’96: “I like being busy…I do better when I’m juggling a lot of things. When I have down time, I get bored and lackluster, and I don’t really feel like myself.”
