Tina Fey kicked off Season 19 of James Lipton's famed Inside the Actor's Studio with impressions (trademark Palin, passable Lorne Michaels) and some advice for women: always wear bras, never eat Lean Cuisine. Also: if Michaels didn't have such a nice apartment, we might have never seen Fey's Palin. Vulture has the rundown, plus video. [NY Mag]
What will Upper Darby homegirl Tina Fey do now that 30 Rock is done? Lots! She's got a new movie coming out with Paul Rudd, and is preparing to co-star with The Muppets in their next cinematic outing. What she won't do: Try to take over for legendary producter Lorne Michaels when he finally leaves the helm of Saturday Night Live, a role he's held so long we had actually forgotten it was possible for anybody else to hold it.Here's the relevant segment of her interview with Huffington Post:So you're a very successful actor and you're doing big movies. But
Quick warning: You'll probably see a lot of Upper Darby homegirl Tina Fey in The Scoop this week: 30 Rock, her masterpiece, airs its series finale on Thursday night, and we're going to be misty-eyed about the local woman made good. It's fitting, then, that she was honored for her acting work last night at the SAG Awards. Watch her acceptance here:

Smart, hilarious, wicked: They showed—unlike Ricky Gervais or Sacha Baron Cohen—that being mean isn't a requisite for being funny. Even when their jokes were barbed, their aw shucks demeanor lessened the blow.
You know the Hollywood legends about how certain shows were brilliant until the network suits got ahold of it? You may want to reconsider them after viewing part of the original pilot for Tina Fey's 30 Rock, starring Rachel Dratch as the character we've all come to know and love in the version played by her replacement, Jane Krakowski. We generally think Upper Darby homegirl Fey can do no wrong, but this version is—as AV Club points out—a bit unsettling. Especially the toilet humor.

Liz Lemon is officially off the market. In an episode set to drop on November 29, local girl Tina Fey's beloved 30 Rock character will tie the knot with her off-beat, gourmet organic hot-dog peddling love interest, Chrisstopher Rick Chross. Finally, after years of failed love attempts with everyone from the Carol Burnett to Dr. Drew Baird, Lemon is forever alone no more.

Upper Darby native, 30 Rock actress, SNL alum, and the evil genius behind the instant classic, Mean Girls, Tina Fey, will be co-hosting the 2013 Golden Globes with her partner in crime, Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler.
