Scoop: Will Arnett Will 30 Rock Once Again
Already the male lead of the freshman NBC comedy Up All Night, Arnett is now officially booked to reprise his 30 Rock character of Devon Banks, TVLine has learned.
Arnett originated the role of Jack Donaghy’s sexually amorphous business rival toward the end of the hitcom’s first season, and has returned a half dozen times since — most recently to help Jack out of a bind with his Kabletown boss. To date, Arnett has earned three guest star Emmy nominations for the role.
News of Arnett’s latest 30 Rock visit comes on the heels of reports that he and the rest of the Arrested Development cast will reprise those characters for a “mini-season” of refresher episodes leading up to the long-rumored movie adaptation of the Fox comedy.
Up All Night airs Wednesdays at 8/7c; 30 Rock will kick off its sixth cycle at midseason.
