Aaron Rodgers makes prime-time TV debut this week

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers is making his prime-time television acting debut.

He'll be on the "The Office" Thursday night on NBC, where No. 12 will play a judge for a singing competition.

Rodgers has expressed interest in hosting "Saturday Night Live" on his weekly radio show, but so far that invitation has not been extended.

Two seasons ago, Rodgers was a guest analyst when NBC had Super Bowl XLVI. Rodgers appeared on the network's pre-game show with former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward.

Rodgers has appeared in a number of television commercials most notably for State Farm Insurance, Pizza Hut and Ford Trucks.

The Packers recently signed Rodgers to a $110 million contract extension.
