Condi Acting Debut Neither Embarrasses Nor Inspires


So the other day I feigned ignorance of 30 Rock (not far from the truth), guessing that it was "some kind of television pop music show for people born in the early 80s." I meant to add "so I suppose they'll have Condi playing the piano," but the sentence was getting awkward, so I left it out. And wouldn't you know it, they did have Condi playing the piano, and I have to admit that the way she was glaring at the Baldwin while doing so was pretty funny. You can watch it here.

She was fine, neither as good nor as bad as I wanted her to be. You could do worse for stunt casting. She did well enough for a cameo in a John Waters courtroom scene.

First, I must admit that I've never watched 30 Rock. And now, after wasting 3 minutes of my life, I feel completely vindicated by never having done so. This entire clip was just DREADFUL. Tell me, has the studio just outsourced the production to some high school A/V Club?

That's a cute picture, though.

I thought Margaret Cho as Kim Jong Il was pretty inspired casting...

In want to live in the world where Condi's favorite movie is really Mars Attacks.

I think that was a Yamaha, not a Baldwin. (ba-dump-dump!)

Next: Condi takes on the piano bar. That's kind of a piano bar face she's wearing there...

Does this mean she will be on Glee next?

cos that would be something else worth not watching.

My new goal in life is: She did well enough for a cameo in a John Waters' courtroom scene.
