James Marsden to guest star on '30 Rock'

An X-Men star is coming to the halls of 30 Rock. EW has learned that James Marsden will appear in an episode (or two?) when the Emmy-winning comedy returns to NBC later this season. (We wish we had an exact date, but the Peacock doesn’t have one yet).

Speaking of which, NBC is also remaining tight-lipped about Marsden’s role – but we’d like to think he’d make a fine new lover for Liz Lemon. Last month, the comedy put out a casting call for a man ages 36-40 who can play Tina Fey’s latest love interest.

Here was the official description: “California-bred with liberal values and a youthful innocence. Easy-going but confident with a strong sense of self.”  The role would definitely involve a multiple-episode commitment.

Can you see a love connection between Liz and the hunk who played Cyclops?
