Leap Day William stars enter Emmys race?
During the “Leap Day” episode of 30 Rock‘s sixth and latest season, various characters watch the retelling of 30 Rock’s fictional Leap Year Day hero, on the USA Network, in what is undoubtedly part of a contrived “Leap Year Marathon.” The fake film stars Jim Carrey as a man being transformed into the made-up mythical character Leap Day William, in a hilarious send-up of the family-friendly comedies that have defined much of the actor’s own career. Even making a three-line appearance is Andie Macdowell playing the overly-familiar oblivious-but-loving wife to Jim Carrey’s spastic spinning-out-of-control protagonist. It’s a fun background gag in a particularly goofy episode (and season) of the Tina Fey-driven show; however, all five short scenes make up less than a minute and a half of screen time.
