Tom Hanks to Guest Star on '30 Rock'

Tom Hanks has another big deal in the pipeline: the actor is set to guest star on NBC's 30 Rock.

The Oscar winner will appear on the Thursday night comedy, a source familiar with the show's plans confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor also announced his upcoming appearance via Twitter, exclaiming, "I'm on 30 Rock!"

Hanks, who most recently executive produced HBO's Emmy-winning miniseries The Pacific, got his start on the small screen playing Buffy Wilson/Kip Wilson on Bosom Buddies, which ran from 1980 to 1982 on ABC.

High-profile stars have turned up on 30 Rock, including Will Arnett, Conan O'Brien, Matt Damon, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Sheen, James Franco and Will Ferrell.
