Jane Krakowski / Jenna Maroney / 30 Rock

Jane Krakowski,Jenna Maroney,30 Rock

Jane Krakowski plays the hilarious Jenna Maroney on NBC's 30 Rock.

Jane was born on October 11 1968 in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Her first big break came on the soap opera Search for Tomorrow in 1984 where she was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards in 1986 and 1987.
In 1997, Jane landed the role of Elaine Vassal on the television series Ally McBeal.
There she got a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1999.
In 2006, Jane joined the cast of 30 Rock, where she plays Jenna Maroney.
Besides the shows I already mentioned, she was also in an episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", two episodes of "Everwood", The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas and another soap opera "Another World".

Jane's character on 30 Rock, Jenna Maroney, is not only a stereotypical "dumb blonde", but also air headed and self-centered.
That may sound like a bad thing, but Jane makes it very funny.
I think her best scenes are not only with Tina Fey (Liz Lemon) but with Tracy Morgan (Tracy Jordan).
Although alone she doesn't fair too badly, as in the old "The Rural Juror " storyline and the "Sing Them Blues, White Girl: The Jackie Jormp-Jomp Story".
The Janis Joplin-inspired character wasn't only funny, but the storyline gave Wikipedia a good smack as well.
