Aaron Rodgers, meet Andy Bernard.
The Green Bay Packers' quarterback is about to do just that this Thursday night when Rodgers appears on NBC's "The Office" as a judge in an a cappella audition. NBC 26 in Green Bay confirmed the news.
Though Rodgers isn't on great terms with CBS after the fallout from the "60 Minutes" piece on him, he's done some work in the past with NBC, including as a guest analyst in the network's Super Bowl coverage two seasons ago. Rodgers has also spoken on a few occasions about hosting NBC's "Saturday Night Live" at some point in the future.
Rodgers' teammate, Clay Matthews, played himself in a recent episode of FOX's "The Mindy Project." If Rodgers is given a few lines in Thursday's episode of "The Office," perhaps a winner will be declared as to which Packers star is the better featured actor.
It's unlikely that Rodgers is being introduced into "The Office" universe to become a romantic interest for Meredith Palmer, but we'll have to wait and see.
