Once Today, NPR made the original Broadway cast recording of Once (based on the Swell Season movie of the same name) available to stream, and I discovered that 30 Rock’s Abby Flynn — played by the wonderful Cristin Milioti, whom I went to college with — is playing the Marketa Irglova role. She’s multi-talented, that one.
“But this IS my real voice!” This has been a big week for People I Know From College On Television. First was Sarah making her Good Wife debut. Then, of course, there’s Nelson, who I see on Traffic Light on a weekly basis now. Last night I was delighted to see Cristin Milioti steal scenes on 30 Rock satirizing Olivia Munn/Sarah Silverman/Victoria Jackson. About a year ago she was part of that Bloomingdales Screen Test advertising experience with Halley. Small world.
