Tina Fey as Princess Leia?

As previously reported, Tina Fey — former SNL head writer, and currently the star and creator of the hit comedy “30 Rock” — is a Star Wars fan.

In the October 2007 issue of Geek Monthly magazine (available at newsstands and online), Fey mentions her brief stint as Princess Leia on “Saturday Night Live.”

“I was C-3PO for Halloween a couple of times. Once when I was nine. I’ll do it again when I’m 40. One time I did a sketch that got cut from SNL where I was going to play Princess Leia, my dream come true. That was the funniest thing ever just because putting that costume on — and I didn’t look like her or anything — but you put that costume and that wig on and nerds go bananikers. People were just staring at me in the hall, all these extras and background people and nerds wanted to talk to me all the sudden. Guys have a real weird thing for that outfit.”

In fact Princess Leia herself — Carrie Fisher — will guest star on “30 Rock” as writer Rosemary Howard for an upcoming episode that will air Oct. 25, 2007.
