Julianne Moore 30 RockYesterday, Julianne Moore was reportedly seen in New York's Rockefeller Center, aka the filming location for NBC's Emmy-winning comedy '30 Rock.' Sources at E! are now predicting that Moore will be Jack Donaghy's (Alec Baldwin) new love interest this season.

Reps for NBC and Moore have yet to release an official statement. But in a recent interview, Baldwin himself said "I won't say who it is, but someone very near to us may be coming on to play my girlfriend for four episodes."

Onlookers at yesterday's filming didn't find any evidence to either confirm or deny the rumor, only catching things in between takes. But one snoop said that the two looked "very chummy," and seemed to be the only ones on location.Julianne Moore 30 RockYesterday, Julianne Moore was reportedly seen in New York's Rockefeller Center, aka the filming location for NBC's Emmy-winning comedy '30 Rock.'

If confirmed, this will be another attempt at comedy by the four-time Oscar nominee, which, uh, hasn't exactly been her best genre -- at least on the big screen.

Case in point: 2004's 'Laws of Attraction,' which was a major bomb, both with critics and at the box office. Reviews for her turns in 'Trust the Man,' 'Evolution' and -- wait for it -- 'The Ladies Man' (even as a clown, she couldn't get a laugh!) were just as bad, with many cirtics calling her casting "inexplicable" (although, really, what wasn't inexplicable about 'The Ladies Man'?)

But if all goes well on '30 Rock,' Moore could have the last laugh. So what do you think: Will Moore's comedic timing work better on the small screen? Or is this a bad idea waiting to happen?
