It would be pretty hard to top Jon Hamm and Matt Damon but 30 Rock is going to try: The NBC comedy just put out a casting call for a man ages 36-40 (talk about a very particular age window!) who can play Liz Lemon’s next love interest. Here’s the official description: “California-bred with liberal values and a youthful innocence. Easy-going but confident with a strong sense of self.” The role would definitely involve a multiple-episode commitment.
The comedy is asking for stars as well as lesser-known names, so just about any Hollywood hunk could get the chance to snuggle with Liz.

(Okay, so maybe we’re not totally sticking to that 36-40 age window, but a girl can still dream, right?)
