Emmy Award winning television comedy show 30 Rock will get some extra star power on its new season. Broadcaster NBC on Wednesday said actors Matt Damon, Queen Latifah, Paul Giamatti and Rob Reiner will be making guest star appearances on the upcoming 5th season.
One of the new episodes will also have a live broadcast for the first time. 30 Rock creator and star Tina Fey and actor Tracy Morgan are both veterans of the satirical Saturday show while Alec Baldwin has hosted it more than a dozen times.
Bourne Ultimatum star Damon, who made a guest-appearance last season's final episode playing Carol the pilot, will repeat his role in the premiere episode on September 23.
Giamatti, known for the 2004 movie Sideways, will play a fussy editor in the second episode. Actor-director Reiner will play himself, while singer/actress Queen Latifah will play a Congresswoman demanding more variety in NBC's lineup in episode 3.
