Santigold to Play Make-Believe on ‘The Office’
Clay Aiken and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will also guest star
Santigold repped for the ladies on “Girls,” her contribution to the HBO show of the same name, and now the Master of My Make-Believe singer is about to lend her talent to network television. Santi White confirmed on her Twitter Tuesday (May 7) that she will make a cameo appearance on this week’s episode of NBC’s The Office, alongside American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who will also guest.
The SPIN 50 Best Albums of 2012-honoree also shared the above photo of herself standing with Aiken, Rodgers, and The Office’s Ed Helms. According to the NME, Santigold will play herself and feature in a storyline in which Helms’ character, Andy Bernard, auditions for a fictional talent show called America’s Next Great A Cappella Sensation. We’re big fans of Santi and all, but she’s got her work cut out for her: Helms’ Andy is a well-proven a cappella sensation.
The penultimate hour-long episode, titled “A.A.R.M.,” also includes an audition for the Assistant to the Assistant to the Regional Manager position. “A.A.R.M.” airs tomorrow (May 9) at 9 p.m. EST on NBC. The series ends its nine-season run on May 16. Several guest stars are reported to appear on the finale, including Joan Cusack, Mindy Kaling, B. J. Novak, Ed Begley Jr., and Steve Carell.
