'30 Rock' dream of Bill Clinton appearing in its 100th episode dashed
Tina Fey, creator and star of the NBC show, had Clinton on a short list of dream guests for the sitcom's 100th episode, airing April 20.
"They hoped he would appear next week to shoot the episode," a show insider told Page Six. "They included him on the call list, but it didn't happen."
The column contacted a rep for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's husband, who basically said the ex-prez didn't get any say in the matter.
"The request was made and immediately denied without asking him," the mouthpiece said.
Sadsies, as Clinton's former Vice President Al Gore has appeared, along with a slew of notables including Matt Damon, Jennifer Aniston and Oprah Winfrey.
