MSNBC Anchor Joins The Avengers

There are several reasons why The Avengers shattered box office records this weekend. We’d like to think that MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts is one of them. As TVNewser’s Alex Weprin mentioned last week, there is a cameo from Roberts near the end playing a TV anchor reporting that a group of heroes saved the planet from an attacking army of alien soldiers. Honestly, that doesn’t sound too far off from an actual newscast these days.

Roberts tells FishbowlDC that the shot was filmed at 30 Rock in February of this year. We just assumed Roberts was a comic book fan, but he tells us that he was always more of a “Super-Friends kind of kid.” Roberts saw the movie this weekend and says that he thinks that “the Hulk stole the show.”

In the same scene that we see Roberts, we see recycled footage of a Jay Carney press conference.
