Tina Fey hoped to land a cameo appearance from Bill Clinton in an upcoming episode of 30 Rock - but the former U.S. President's advisers rejected the part before offering it to their boss.
The funnywoman reportedly wrote to Clinton's representative Doug Band asking if the ex-politician would consider joining the cast of the hit TV show for the 100th episode, which is due to air next month (Apr11).
But Clinton's camp turned down the slot, and a spokesperson has now confirmed the former world leader wasn't even told about the offer.
A rep tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "The request was made and immediately denied without asking him."
