Politicians are on network comedy shows all the time -- just rarely as themselves (think: Tina Fey as Sarah Palin), and rarely in a positive light (any political SNL cold open, ever).

So it's worth raising an eyebrow to news that Nancy Pelosi will play a role in the series finale of "30 Rock," an NBC comedy created by Fey that's set to end this January.

"I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do,” Pelosi told the Washington Post regarding the gig. "I'm flattered that they asked me to make a cameo in the series finale. I had a lot of fun.”

NBC's comedy writers have cast plenty of politicians recently, including Newt Gingrich who made a cameo on "Parks and Recreaction." Joe Biden also made an appearance on that show, as did Sens. John McCain, Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe.

The one-hour "30 Rock" series finale will air Thursday, Jan. 31, at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
