Who has been the inspiration for Tina Fey for the season 1 episode titled “The C-Word” of her show “30 Rock,” which depicts her real-life experiences as a head writer for “Saturday Night Live?” Well, Fey herself has revealed which “SNL” cast member called her the C-word and inspired the famous “30 Rock” episode, in a recent interview with Howard Stern.
According to VF Hollywood, Tina Fey disclosed that the NBC’s “SNL” alum Colin Quinn was responsible for the “30 Rock” C-word inspiration, during the interview with Stern.
The American sitcom “30 Rock” viewers would know that character Lutz calls Liz Lemon (Fey), well, the C-word. Indeed, Fey admitted that the thing happened during her tenure at “Saturday Night Live.”
She also revealed that they tried to put the “ugliness behind them,” and remained as good friends. She also added that she loves him so much and tried to “help him with a show that he was working on.” She even “invited him to guest” on “30 Rock” on “three occasions.” However, he turned them down every time, during all the three occasions.
Fey also revealed that she and Quinn did not have any connection ever since she saw him on “Girls,” and that they reconnected during the “SNL” season 40. The two has been continuing a good relationship ever since.
Colin Quinn himself has admitted this on Twitter, reported Screen Crush.
“ It’s all true. I have used profanity when I’ve been angry at people. When I was wrong (as with Tina) I’ve said sorry to them,” tweeted Quinn on December 15.
The source also reported that there are many such similar real life incidents on “30 Rock.” It is really good that Tina Fey and Colin Quinn could forget everything and continue a good relationship, added the source. During the interview, Stern finally joked that “Quinn has no role” in Fey’s upcoming 2015 film “Sisters.” The “Sisters” movie would hits the theaters in the USA on December 18.
