Genetically gifted gay actor Cheyenne Jackson is joining the cast of 30 Rock, one of TV's most acclaimed shows.
The Broadway star will join the cast of Tina Fey's Emmy Award-winning comedy as a "permanent or semi-permanent player," reports E! online, which says Jackson has already begun filming. Speculation is that Jackson will play a love interest to the daffy character played by Jane Krakowski, who costarred with him in a Broadway production of Damn Yankees.
Aside from starring in shows like Xanadu, All Shook Up, Aida, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Altar Boyz, Jackson portrayed 9/11 hero Mark Bingham in the film United 93.
Jackson, who is partnered, will also return to Broadway shortly in the revival of Finian's Rainbow.
