Condoleezza Rice appears on ‘30 Rock’ (Video)

Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice made a brief cameo Thursday night on NBC’s “30 Rock.”

Rice, who’s never before appeared on a TV sitcom, played herself as the jealous, piano-playing ex-girlfriend of Jack Don­aghy (played by Alec Baldwin).

As you can see in the clip above (or here), Don­aghy visits Rice’s office asking her to help secure the safe return of his wife, Avery, who’s been abducted by the North Koreans.

A mild jealous rage and a flute-piano playoff ensues. No word yet on whether the secretary will make a return (though she expertly played the part).
