There must be a lot of truly sad moments and conflicted emotions that accompany the ending of a long-running TV series. But there is always one unreservedly awesome bright spot: free stuff! And two 30 Rock stars, Alec Baldwin and Jack McBrayer have revealed what items from the 30 Rock set they’re most eager to take home.
While promoting the recently released film Wreck-It-Ralph, McBrayer let slip that he’d like to keep his blue NBC page uniform. “It’s pretty much just formed to my own skin like body paint at this point,” he said.
That seems like a modest, yet appropriate choice. Kenneth without a page uniform is like Batman without a cape and cowl. It’s a little jarring to see him wear anything else.
Baldwin’s post-30 Rock swag, however, is a little more mysterious.
“I’m going to take books,” the actor revealed this summer at an L.A. Rise of the Guardians screening. “There is a set of books that are on the shelf in my character’s office that I want to take. They’re from a collection of these beautiful books.”
This could be very fitting if we just knew what the books are. There had better be titles like What Am I a Farmer: the Guide to Late-Afternoon Tuxedos and The Big Book of Possible Hans Gruber from ‘Die Hard’ Quotes.
So what item should each 30 Rock cast member nab for themselves? Don’t suggest Judah Friedlander taking all of Frank’s hats – NBC would go bankrupt.
