Though not yet officially confirmed by NBC, this is my story and I’m sticking to it: Movie star Matt Damon will ‘30 Rock‘ again as Carol, the dashing commercial airline pilot who sent Liz’s (Tina Fey) spirits flying in the Season 4 finale.

Damon’s encore was first revealed via a photo that ‘View‘ host and recurring ’30 Rock’ player Sherri Shepherd shared on Twitter.

“OMG! I’m on set @30 Rock next to Tina Fey & MATT DAMON is sitting behind me!” Shepherd wrote of her encounter with the big-screen star. “I went over & said hi – think I just got pregnant!”

Sherri later shared a photo of herself with Damon – in wardrobe, as airline pilot Carol – and her on-screen hubby, Tracy Morgan. “Guess who I hooked up with on the set of 30 Rock!” she effused.

An NBC rep did not immediately reply to Fancast’s inquiry as to which episode Damon will appear in.

Shepherd also revealed that she had shot a ’30 Rock’ scene with ‘SNL’ alum Chris Parnell, who winningly recurs as the sketchy Dr. Spaceman.
