Should Mayor Bloomberg consider acting after leaving City Hall? He's appeared on Law & Order (twice), he's supposed to be appear in the upcoming Sex and the City movie, and he just had a cameo on a 30 Rock. The 30 Rock cameo is pretty hard to beat, as Bloomberg presents a medal to a subway hero--recalling how he honored actual subway hero Wesley Autrey--except the show's subway hero is the sleazy Beeper King ex-boyfriend of Liz Lemon (played by Dean Winters). Yes, the ex-boyfriend who was ensnared in a Dateline To Catch a Predator segment. Here's the part with Mayor Bloomberg:

Of course, Alec Baldwin's character Jack Donaghy explains away possible predator tendencies of the subway hero, saying it was all a "silly misunderstanding...like the Giuliani campaign." Snap! The exonerated hero called Bloomberg "Mayor Bloomberger," gives a shout-out to Howard Stern fans, and forces the Mayor into a call-and-response. We give the mayor an "A" for his performance as a startled, incredulous Hizzoner.
