Nepotism We Can Get Behind: Tina Fey’s Kid On ’30 Rock’
Nepotism is the enemy of any no-name from the suburbs who clawed their way to the top (er, weekend blogging gig for Black Book). For every Spitzer/Wenner/Huffington/Hanks/Spielberg spawn with a sweet gig, there’s a bitter liberal arts grad who really could have used that $35,000 salary. But a hypocrite I am, yes, because this nepotism is A-OK in my book: Tina Fey’s daughter Alice on 30 Rock.
Alice Richmond, who is seven, appeared on Thursday night’s episode playing a young Liz Lemon. She was the flower girl in a wedding who rolls her eyes when the reverand announces, "You may kiss the bride!" (Eyerolling at weddings, you see, is something Liz Lemon never got over.)
Alice is the spitting image of Tina Fey, especially in the eyes. No word yet, though, on whether that bowl cut was keeping with ’70s child hairstyles of "young Liz Lemon" prior flashbacks or an actual Fey/Richmond family haircut.
Go ahead, give Alice all of the jobs. It’s totally cool.
