Extra, extra: Somebody’s getting married!
Lovable loser Liz Lemon loses the “always a bridesmaid” tag:
Fans of “30 Rock” might have reasonably assumed that Lemon, the harried TV producer played by Tina Fey, would ride out the series’ seventh and final season as a perennial bachelorette unlucky in love. But Fey, who is also the creator and producer of the NBC comedy, clearly thought otherwise.
In the “30 Rock” episode airing Nov. 29, Lemon will wed.
Who’s the lucky guy? He’s Liz’s latest fella, Criss Chross (played by guest star James Marsden), a Peter Pan-ish would-be entrepreneur who hatches ventures such as an organic gourmet hot-dog truck.
On Thursday, NBC made the grand announcement that Ms. Elizabeth Miervaldis Lemon, 42, would be presenting herself to be married to Mr. Crisstopher Rick Chross — “But not in a creepy way that perpetuates the idea that brides are virgins and women are property.”
The invitation also specifies that guests (i.e., you viewers) should plan to “bring your own snacks.”
