Big 30 Rock news: NBC announced today that Civil rights activist and philosopher Dr. Cornel West will be appearing as himself in the season finale, set to air on May 17th. It's to be expected since series star Kevin Brown - AKA, Dotcom - tweeted a picture of the two of them together on set last month, but now that the appearance is official, we can all get excited for it. According to Vulture, West will appear in the episode to give character Tracy Jordan some advice about, you know, life things.
