Calvin Klein Cameo on "30 Rock"

Last night on the NBC comedy series "30 Rock", the American fashion desiger Calvin Klein made a brief but humorous cameo appearance as himself. In a scene where Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) and (now former) love interest Dr. Drew Baird (Jon Hamm) are taking a stroll, Drew's good looks garner him compliments from strangers, lead to a parking ticket torn up by a traffic warden, and Klein stops him with a proposal: "I am Calvin Klein and I think you should be my next underwear model." Even more hilariously, Klein doesn't offer Drew a business card or phone number to get in touch, should he choose to accept the offer. It's fiction in any case—according to Women's Wear Daily, Klein no longer casts his namesake brand's models. Another bit of trivia—daughter Marci Klein is executive producer of the show.
