New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will play himself in an episode of NBC's new sitcom "The Michael J. Fox Show."

And according to Fox, who'll play a New York City news anchor -- at an NBC station -- in the show, where his character interviews Christie, he nailed the role.

"He was very good. He was very friendly, very funny," Fox told me after an NBC press conference on Saturday during the Television Critics Association meetings in Beverly Hills, Calif. "He was on his way to the All-Star game and dropped by the studio and was just great. He's like an actor. He went through the process, and makeup and rehearsal."

"Well, we kind of goofed around a little bit, so it's hard to say it's like one take, because we did four or five takes. But he was really great. And he was a really great sport."

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
