One of the new season episodes will also be broadcast live for the first time, in a throwback to many of the cast’s previous days of working on TV sketch show Saturday Night Live.

30 Rock creator and star Tina Fey and actor Tracy Morgan are both veterans of the satirical Saturday show, while Alec Baldwin has hosted it more than a dozen times.

Bourne Ultimatum star Damon, who made a guest-appearance last season’s final episode playing Carol the pilot, will reprise his role in the premiere episode of the fifth season.

Giamatti, best known for the 2004 movie Sideways, will play a persnickety editor in the second episode. Actor-director Reiner will star as himself, while singer Queen Latifah will play a Congresswoman demanding more diversity in NBC’s lineup in episode three.

Guest-stars including Elizabeth Banks, Sherri Shepherd and Chris Parnell will also be back to continue their guest-starring roles of Avery Jessup, Angie Jordan and Dr. Spaceman, respectively
