Scott Adsit as Pete Hornberger on ’30 Rock’ + Sam the Eagle – Celebrity Doppelgangers
Scott Adsit used to play Pete Hornberger, the executive producer of the fictional ‘TGS’ on Tina Fey‘s ’30 Rock’ before it sadly went off the air, but that doesn’t mean we don’t watch the reruns on FOX every night and laugh at lines we’ve heard a million times.
One such line put a thought in our heads that Pete did look an awful lot like a bald eagle. Not just any bald eagle, but the constantly grumpy looking and often serious Sam the Eagle from the Muppets.
In a fourth season episode of ’30 Rock’ entitled ’Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter,’ Pete is dealing with the loss of staff writer Toofer, who quit when he learned he was hired because of affirmative action. To get him back, Pete asks Tracy Morgan’s character to talk some sense into him.
To which Tracy hilariously responds, “Oh yeah, ask the black guy ‘cause we all know each other. Pete, could you tell a bald eagle to stop scaring me at zoos?!”
