Edie Falco Heads to 30 Rock

That was fast. Just a few weeks after eating her last bowl of onion rings and fading to black, The Sopranos' Edie Falco has landed another television acting gig.

NBC has announced that the Emmy Award winner will appear in no less than three episodes of comedy (and Televisionary fave) 30 Rock this season.

"We're thrilled to have such an amazing actress come join us," said 30 Rock's creator, star, and executive producer Tina Fey, in a press release. "Also, a lot of guys on our crew want The Sopranos ending explained to them."

Falco, for her part, was also enthusiastic about joining the cast of the critically-acclaimed comedy series. "I have laughed out loud at this show, and I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with such great comic actors," said Falco. "I am very excited."

Along with Falco's casting announcement, NBC also confirmed that Will Arnett, Rip Torn, and Sherri Shepherd will all reprise their guest roles from Season One this coming season on 30 Rock.

30 Rock's second season kicks off on Thursday, October 4 at its new time of 8:30 pm.
