(CBS NEWS) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will make a cameo in the “30 Rock” series finale.

NBC confirmed Thursday that Pelosi would be appearing in the show’s final episode. The network didn’t give any other details about her role (presumably, she’ll be playing herself) or how she’d figure into the finale, according to the Washington Post.

Pelosi spoke about the cameo with the Post, saying, “I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do.”

“I’m flattered that they asked me to make a cameo in the series finale. I had a lot of fun,” she added.

The episode, which was shot last month, airs on Jan. 31. According to Entertainment Weekly, Ice-T and Julianne Moore will also appear in the finale.

Pelosi — who once appeared as a guest judge on “Top Chef” — joins a list of political figures who have guest-starred on “30 Rock.” Others include former Vice President Al Gore, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
