Rodgers to play talent judge on ‘The Office’ this Thursday

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.

An NBC news affiliate unveiled a sneak peek of Rodgers’ “Office” cameo in which he shuts down any hope that Bernard (Ed Helms) had of advancing in the a cappella competition.

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 for 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.” The debate is now on as to which Packers star turned in the better featured actor performance.

Sadly, it appears as if Rodgers was not introduced into the “The Office” universe as a love interest for Meredith Palmer.
