Gore is set to make an appearance on the NBC show '30 Rock'
NEW YORK (CNN) - Former Vice President Al Gore is expected to make an appearance on the NBC comedy show "30 Rock" in November. Gore was in New York last week to tape the episode, and a Gore spokeswoman says "he did have a great time".
Gore's office anticipates the episode will air as part of, what it called, NBC's upcoming "Green is Universal" week of environmentally-based programming, Nov. 4 – 10.
NBC would not comment on the story.
As to what role the 2000 Democratic presidential nominee plays on the show or what the plot entails, "you gotta watch the show," says Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider.

I really find it odd Mr Gore doesn't run for the Presidency right now. The sentiment (among his supporters) is he won the 2000 election. Hillary has horribly high negative ratings.
I wonder if there weren't some "agreement" to keep him out?
I would never vote for him... but as a political observer I'm surprised he isn't running.
what a shame for us, we did not elect him as our Presidient. It is a loss for America.
oh, brother.... another Fred Thompson....from the Hill, to TV, to the WH....
"30 Rock" and Al Gore – both full of themselves.
And to think, I used to hate that guy.
I'm sure the idiot will be running around saying "The Sky is Falling"
When I first saw the title of this story, I thought that Al Gore was going to have his OWN sitcom series. maybe he was going to make a sitcom based on his Presidential bid or "An Inconvienient Truth"
I remember Gore doing a spoof of the show "West Wing" on Saturday Night Live a few years ago, and it was really funny and he was hilarious. I am as Rebulican as you can get and hate his politics, but I will admit that he has great acting ability.
The guy from Saturday Night Live would probably do a better job.
I am OK with "Green is Universal" even if W or Fred Thomson taking part. Of course Gore does it more naturally. I wonder, I have been waiting for more and more environmentally friendly politicians so we'll be able to pass on a greener USA to our future generations.
Go green, America!
I would think Tina Fey would be smart enough to see that Al Gore is a self-serving hack. Then again, Alec Baldwin might have desensitized her.
Spare the comparisons to Fred Thompson. One is the most prescient politician of our time. The other forgets that the SOVIET UNION no longer exists.
If Gore was to run, he would win, not only the Democratic nomination, but the Presidency. He must know that, so one can only assume he has found his calling doing what he is doing.
I'm sure he is doing what Colin Powell did in not running as well. He probably doesn't want to subject his family to that life.
The main reason I didn't vote for him in 2000 was because of Tipper (no i didnt vote for Bush either.) She was a leader in the PMRC, and many of us in the music industry were attacked by her organization, even those with music that was not vert offensive at all.
I felt she was a strong advocate for government censorship, which I felt was inappropriate for a First lady.
"seriously only libs toot their own hornj like this"
If you are looking for horn-tooting, I would look no further than the Republicans in the White House.
How odd that a Republican poster would be "sick" of Al Gore.
I just don't see the logic in it. After a disputed election in 2000 which Gore lost (I personally stand behind both the Supreme Court and the Electoral College, so I acknowledge Bush as the winner), we have been subjected to seven years of some of the worst leadership our country has ever seen.
Sick of Al Gore? I think seeing Al Gore on TV and at the Oscars has been a minimal intrusion on our lives. The person to be sick of is in the White House.
gee, Al are you still trying to find your a..hole?....look in the mirror stupid....
JAMES IN PHONEIX...You want to watch a real comedy, watch George Bush try to speak without a script!
blah blah blah
i suppose that Al likely also invented the sitcom.
what a blow-hard
Why is everyone attacks Al Gore for being "boring", "a dork" etc, seems no one actually attacks his stances or his beliefs, just plain old personal attacks.
Hey Richard Goodwin, you mean like the idiot Repubs that run around saying "If we don't fight them there, we'll have to fight them here" Talk about chicken little's!
If Al Gore would run for president, I would vote for him.
I CAN JUST SEE IT NOW A DUMMY PLAYING HIMSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I truly believe Gore would be the best chance the Democrats have of winning the presidency. I hope he wins the Nobel Peace Prize next Friday. Hopefully he will then go on to announce he is entering the race later this month. I would vote for him AGAIN. GORE 2008!
This is the news? I thought the silly season was over. This is worse than the news about Fred Thompson's trophy
Al Gore makes great comedy films. The title alone on his last one was a hilarious reflection of his political career.
An inconvenient truth.., isn't it ironic.
Joseph from Austin, TX,
Apparently you have never seen Guliani on SNL and other shows and John McCain on SNL and the Daily Show. I love how Al Gore bothers you only because he is a Democrat. The only thing he is trying to do is save the planet from Global Warming. Instead you rather support people who don't believe in it and want to blow up the world.
